Hyper Simple. Hyper Scalable. Hyperconverged.
For IT leaders struggling to achieve the agility and economics of the cloud with
the enterprise-grade performance and protection of an on-premises solution,
hyperconvergence is the answer. HPE SimpliVity 380 is a powerful, simple, and
efficient solution that addresses legacy, complex data center problems by
converging servers, storage, networking, and all other devices below the
hypervisor, into one simple-to-manage, software-defined platform. This preintegrated hyperconverged building block dramatically simplifies IT by combining
all infrastructure and advanced data services for virtualized workloads—including
guaranteed data efficiency, data protection, and VM-centric management and
mobility—with the world’s best-selling server platform, the HPE ProLiant DL380

Who should you talk to?
1) Prospective customers who are considering moving from traditional IT
infrastructure to a hyperconverged solution:
Midmarket organizations that are looking to consolidate their data center
Large enterprise organizations that are looking to simplify and consolidate
infrastructure for some or all of their virtualized workloads, including Tier-1 and
mission critical applications, along with specific projects or use cases,
including VDI, DevOps, Disaster Recovery, and ROBO
2) Existing SimpliVity customers that are interested in expanding their footprint
with an HPE ProLiant-based, HPE SimpliVity solution
Why do customers need it?
The digital evolution is putting pressure on IT to move faster. Businesses are
weighed down by an IT infrastructure not designed to meet the requirements of
today’s virtual environments. Through hyperconverged solutions that bring
together servers, storage and networking in one simple platform, customers can
now streamline complex manual processes and non-integrated IT infrastructure to
support the business.
However, the majority of today’s hyperconverged solutions are solving only part of
the problem. With the growth of virtualization, more appliances have been added
to the legacy infrastructure stack to manage increasing demand. These
appliances include solutions for backup and deduplication, WAN optimization,
storage caching, and others.
Today’s businesses need a powerhouse hyperconverged solution that combines
not only servers and storage, but all other IT devices below the hypervisor—a
powerful, simple, and efficient platform with the agility and economics of the cloud
in an on-premises environment. That’s exactly what the HPE SimpliVity 380
