HP and VMware Expand Partnership

HP and VMware are expanding their longstanding partnership with a new enterprise-class appliance for software-defined IT infrastructure.

The HP ConvergedSystem 200-HC EVO: RAIL is a hyper-converged infrastructure appliance powered by VMware EVO: RAIL that tightly integrates compute, network, storage and management resources seamlessly.  It features a pre-integrated, pre-tested 100 percent VMware software stack, to provide high availability at both the compute and storage layers, with VMware vSphere, VMware Virtual SAN, VMware vRealize Log Insight (formerly vCenter Log Insight), and the EVO: RAIL engine.

“This collaboration between HP and VMware to deliver EVO: RAIL will provide organizations with an innovative approach to driving better business outcomes through a software-defined data center architecture,” said Raghu Raghuram, executive vice president, Software-Defined Data Center Division, VMware. “Together, HP and VMware are helping customers dramatically simplify and accelerate the delivery of software-defined infrastructure services while lowering operating expenses.”

“Today businesses are looking for more efficient ways to speed time to application and service delivery that reduce the strain on existing infrastructure, said Nariman Teymourian, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Systems, HP. “Our collaboration with VMware to deliver hyper-converged infrastructure reinforces our commitment to provide customers superior technology choices as they migrate from inefficient legacy systems to modern integrated infrastructure.”
