HPE Composable Cloud Invites Third-Party Vendors to Hybrid Cloud Party

November 26, 2018 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle

Composable infrastructure is still in its infancy, but Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) says the next step is composable cloud.The vendor today launched HPE Composable Cloud at its annual conference in Madrid. The new product bundles software on top of HPE ProLiant DL rack servers for an open hybrid cloud platform.“We’ve taken a number of solutions in our portfolio and combined them into a new product,” said Lauren Whitehouse, director of marketing, Software-Defined and Cloud Group at HPE. “But the emphasis is on the software stack.”Composable infrastructure delivers fluid pools of networking, storage, and compute resources that can be composed and recomposed as needed. HPE started shipping Synergy, its composable infrastructure product, late last year.And in May HPE reached a deal to buy SDN vendor Plexxi. Soon after, it started integrating Plexxi’s technology into its hyperconverged and composable infrastructure products.
