SUSE, HPE bring scalable storage solution for enterprises


SUSE, the German-based software company known for developing and selling Linux products to business customers has joined its efforts with technology solutions provider HPE to deliver a Scalable Object Storage Solution with SUSE Enterprise Storage. The aim is to let customers manage their problems of data storage at massive scale.

The solution is supported on HPE storage-optimized Apollo servers and HPE general-purpose ProLiant servers. SUSE claims that with this new solution, customers can transform their enterprise storage infrastructure, delivering highly scalable and resilient storage that is fully supported, cost efficient and able to adapt to changing business and data demands.

“We are entering an era when data will be the real differentiator among companies and competitors,” said Nils Brauckmann, CEO of SUSE.

“Those who can effectively collect, store and analyze huge amounts of data will be able to outmaneuver others in the market. This solution is built to provide customers a strong foundation for their future data growth.”

The storage solution, according to an official release, provides a fully supported and validated software-defined enterprise storage solution that is scalable and cost effective. This leads to a sink in the total cost of ownership for customers developing cloud and archival storage systems. In addition, the solution is integrated and certified to work with HPE Data Protector, backup and recovery software that provides comprehensive data protection, real-time analytics and guided optimization.

Chuck Smith, Vice President, Business Development, HPE Server Global Business Unit at HPE, said, “Human data and machine data are growing 10 times faster than traditional business data, so IT infrastructure and processes need to adapt to keep up. SUSE Enterprise Storage on HPE servers will enable customers to stay ahead of the explosive growth of digital data without crippling their budgets.”

The HPE and SUSE storage solution is available on three hardware platforms, including HPE Apollo 4000, built for the highest levels of storage performance and efficiency; HPE ProLiant DL380, that brings a comprehensive portfolio of versatile compute offerings; and HPE Cloudline CL5200 that is tailored to service providers building and operating massively scaled data centers.
