HPE announced a collaboration with Alibaba Cloud as the first technology vendor to deliver next-generation on-premise hybrid cloud solutions with Apsara Stack on HPE platforms in Asia Pacific (excluding China).
To respond to a new generation of apps and data, organizations are looking towards adopting hybrid cloud strategies that combine both public cloud and private cloud into a seamlessly blended infrastructure to achieve business agility and optimize operational efficiency. However, many still prefer to host their cloud within their on-premise data centers for security, compliance or data sovereignty reasons.
To help accelerate small to large scale hybrid cloud deployments ranging from 20 to 10,000 servers, HPE, Alibaba Cloud and Intel are collaborating to optimize and certify Apsara Stack cloud services on HPE platforms, including HPE ProLiant Gen10, the world’s most secure industry standard servers, and state of the art HPE FlexFabric networking switches.
The HPE-based offering, using Intel Xeon® Scalable processor-based platform, is targeted for availability end-2018 across Asia Pacific excluding China.
