FREMONT, CA: The rising benefits of hybrid cloud has paved way for new architectures and offerings in the field of cloud computing. Thereupon, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) confederates with Microsoft with Microsoft Azure as a preferred public cloud partner for HPE and HPE as the selected partner in providing infrastructure for Microsoft.

This integration will give birth to the HPE Hyper Converged 250 for Microsoft Cloud Platform system standard formed by the combination of HPE ProLiant technology and Microsoft Azure innovation. The joint solution will bring Azure services to Data Centers of organizations with an option of leveraging the cloud whenever they want to.

HPE ProLiant utilizes HP Insight Control and OneView to automate key management processes including system’s physical deployment and configuration. On the other hand, Microsoft Azure provides IT professionals with integrated tools, pre built templates and managed services that help them in building and managing web and Internet of Things faster.

The joint solution will provide integrated management experience across all system components. HPE will provide its users to extract the benefits of the hybrid cloud by availing the Azure on its servers. Alternatively, HPE Big Data and security software will be made available on the Azure Public Cloud.

“Hewlett Packard Enterprise is committed to helping businesses transform to hybrid cloud environments in order to drive growth and value. 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,” says Meg Whitman, President and CEO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
