Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Microsoft announce plans to deliver integrated hybrid IT infrastructure

1 Dec 2015 London - At Hewlett Packard Enterprise Discover, HPE and Microsoft have launched new innovation in Hybrid Cloud computing through Microsoft Azure, HPE infrastructure and services, and new programme offerings. The extended partnership appoints Microsoft Azure as a preferred public Cloud partner for HPE customers while HPE will serve as a preferred partner in providing infrastructure and services for Microsoft's hybrid Cloud offerings.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is committed to helping businesses transform to hybrid Cloud environments in order to drive growth and value", stated Meg Whitman, President and CEO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "Public Cloud services, like those Azure provides, are an important aspect of a hybrid Cloud strategy and Microsoft Azure blends perfectly with HPE solutions to deliver what our customers need most."

The partnering companies will collaborate across engineering and services to integrate innovative compute platforms that help customers optimize their IT environment, leverage new consumption models and accelerate their business further, faster.

"Our mission to empower every organisation on the planet is a driving force behind our broad partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise that spans Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Windows 10", stated Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft. "We are now extending our longstanding partnership by blending the power of Azure with HPE's leading infrastructure, support and services to and make the Cloud more accessible to enterprises around the globe."

HPE and Microsoft are introducing the first hyper-converged system with true hybrid Cloud capabilities, the HPE Hyper-Converged 250 for Microsoft Cloud Platform System Standard. Bringing together industry leading HPE ProLiant technology and Microsoft Azure innovation, the jointly engineered solution brings Azure services to customers' data centres, empowering users to choose where and how they want to leverage the Cloud. An Azure management portal enables business users to self-deploy Windows and Linux workloads, while ensuring IT has central oversight. Azure services provide reliable back-up and disaster recovery, and with HPE OneView for Microsoft System Center, customers get an integrated management experience across all system components. HPE offers hardware and software support, installation and startup services to customers to speed deployment to just a matter of hours, lower risk and decrease total cost of ownership. The CS 250 is available to order today.

As part of the expanded partnership, HPE will enable Azure consumption and services on every HPE server, which allows customers to rapidly realize the benefits of hybrid Cloud.

Building on the success of HPE Quality Center and HPE LoadRunner on the Azure Marketplace, HPE and Microsoft will work together to make select HPE industry-leading application lifecycle management, Big Data and security software products available on the Azure Public Cloud.

HPE and Microsoft will create HPE Azure Centers of Excellence in Palo Alto, California and Houston, Texas, to ensure customers have a seamless hybrid Cloud experience when leveraging Azure across HPE infrastructure, software and services. Through the work at these centres, both companies will invest in continuing advancements in Hybrid IT and Composable Infrastructure.

Because Azure is a preferred provider of public Cloud for HPE customers, HPE also plans to certify an additional 5,000 Azure Cloud Architects through its Global Services Practice. This will extend its Enterprise Services offerings to bring customers an open, agile, more secure hybrid Cloud that integrates with Azure.

Microsoft will join the HPE Composable Infrastructure Partner Programme to accelerate innovation for the next-generation infrastructure and advance the automation and integration of Microsoft System Center and HPE OneView orchestration tools with today's infrastructure.

Likewise, HPE joined two Microsoft programmes that help customers accelerate their hybrid Cloud journey through end-to-end Cloud, mobility, identity and productivity solutions. As a participant in Microsoft's Cloud Solution Provider programme, HPE will sell Microsoft Cloud solutions across Azure, the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) and Office 365.
