Enterprise IT Company HPE Announces OneSphere Management Application for Hybrid Clouds
November 29, 2017
Enterprise IT company Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced the coming launch of the OneSphere management application for based hybrid clouds. HPE, which has headquarters in Palo Alto, California, United States, prides itself on helping customers “use technology to turn ideas into value”. The company was split from the former Hewlett Packard (HP Inc.) to have a clear focus on providing “servers, storage, networking, consulting and support, and financial services”. OneSphere enables HPE to better serve companies that require multicloud management application for on-premises and public clouds.
The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based OneSphere was announced at HPE’s recent “Discover Conference” held in Madrid, Spain. While companies are investing in multiple clouds, cost optimization and compliance concerns drive parallel investment in private cloud infrastructure. OneSphere provides a cloud management platform that facilitates both multicloud and hybrid cloud utilization through a single interface.
OneSphere allows developers to establish the resources applications need without the need of support from other IT departments. The solution simplifies the building of private clouds and ‘connect to’ public clouds. It will be launched in January 2018, and while it will initially only support Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure and Google Cloud support will follow. Companies utilizing OneSphere on-premise will be able to manage a number of cloud platforms (including Kubernetes and VMware). Support for Open Stack and Azure Stack will be added later, as will support for the 600-partner strong global Cloud 28 coalition.
“Our customers need a radically new approach – one that’s designed for the new hybrid IT reality,” explained HPE’s Senior Vice President and General Manager, Software-Defined and Cloud Group, Mr. Ric Lewis. “With HPE OneSphere, we’re abstracting away the complexity of managing multi-cloud environments and applications so our customers can focus on what’s important – accelerating digital transformation and driving business outcomes.”
