Hewlett Packard Enterprise today announced the launch of HPE Container Platform, the industry’s first enterprise-grade Kubernetes-based container platform designed for both cloud-native and monolithic applications with persistent storage. With the HPE Container Platform, enterprise customers can accelerate application development for new and existing apps – running on bare-metal or virtualized infrastructure, on any public cloud, and at the edge.
HPE Container Platform leverages BlueData, MapR, and Kubernetes for a faster path to application modernization – with greater agility, lower costs and enterprise-grade security. The new platform uniquely addresses the requirements for large-scale enterprise Kubernetes deployments across a wide range of use cases, from machine learning and edge analytics to CI/CD pipelines and application modernization. IT teams can manage multiple Kubernetes clusters with multi-tenant container isolation and pre-integrated persistent storage. Developers have secured on-demand access to their environments so they can develop apps and release code faster, with the portability of containers to build once and deploy anywhere.
This new solution complements existing HPE services to assist customers with container strategies, application modernization, and hybrid cloud deployments.
HPE Pointnext provides advisory and consulting services leveraging experience from over one thousand hybrid cloud engagements and the expertise and best practices of Cloud Technology Partners and RedPixie.
HPE Container platform will be available from early 2020.
