Hewlett Packard Enterprise has partnered with hosting services provider Servers Australia to roll out enterprise cloud hosting infrastructure across Australia and New Zealand, a move which is expected to give a much needed fillip to the small and medium sized businesses in the region.
Servers Australia said the move to HPE is an industry first where small and medium enterprises can access true ‘enterprise-level’ cloud infrastructure, according to a report by CRN Australia.
“Servers Australia has decided to move away from Supermicro, which is traditionally known as the whitebox cloud hardware of choice, and moved into partnership with HPE,” chief technology officer and co-founder of Servers Australia, Peter Betyounan said.
“This is an industry first that allows any small and medium enterprises to access true enterprise-level cloud infrastructure,” added Betyounan.
Servers Australia also pointed out that the partnership enables it to deliver larger solutions within days instead of months.
“Australian distributors have always been a blocker when it comes to larger cloud infrastructure projects.
“Now this is no longer the case as we can leverage HPE’s massive infrastructure capacity and also their logistical strengths across our Australian and New Zealand points of presence.
As per the agreement Servers Australia can offer the latest Intel and AMD processors.
The deal also includes HPE InfoSight, an AI-powered autonomous monitoring operation platform to ensure Servers Australia’s cloud environments are always-on and always-fast, delivering intelligence and insights for infrastructure across servers and all HPE storage and virtualised resources.
