Nebulon Broadens Server Platform Choice to Include HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen 10 Plus Servers with AMDEPYC™ Processors for smartCore and smartEdge solutions
Nebulon Inc.®, a pioneer of smartInfrastructureTM, server-embedded infrastructure software delivered as-a-service, today announced Nebulon smartCoreTM and Nebulon smartEdgeTM solution support for the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus Server using the new 3rd Generation AMD EPYC™ Processor. With this announcement, Nebulon offers customers using HPE ProLiant servers a broad range of server options for their smartInfrastructure deployments.
Many enterprises have a cloud-first strategy, fuelled by the need to improve operational simplicity. Whether it is self-service provisioning ease or comprehensive infrastructure management behind-the-scenes, the public cloud provides an operating model that allows application owners to focus on their application versus the underlying infrastructure. However, organisations do not view all enterprise application data as suitable for public cloud data centres due to concerns around cost, service levels or compliance. IT organisations who seek a cloud-like experience but must keep applications on premises are finding smartInfrastructure is an ideal solution with their HPE ProLiant servers.
HPE ProLiant Gen10 Plus servers using AMD EPYC processors deliver exceptional performance and scale for both core and edge data centres. By equipping HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus servers with Nebulon’s cloud-managed IoT endpoint, customers can leverage the SaaS-based Nebulon ON cloud control plane to gain the agility of cloud, bring the cloud operational experience to wherever their on-premises data lives and ultimately realise three major benefits.
· First, smartInfrastructure does not require any server CPU or memory overhead, so the workload density achieved can enable organisations to reduce infrastructure costs by up to 33%.
· Second, the Nebulon solution provides single-click centralised data plane updates for all Nebulon-based HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus servers across the enterprise that complete in minutes, reducing time spent on software and firmware updates by 90%.
· Finally, application owners can leverage application templates with standard services provisioned from a single API endpoint in the cloud, accelerating infrastructure provisioning by 2x. And all of these benefits come without adding a new data centre vendor.
“As a SaaS provider for electronic medical records and practice management for medical offices, we first heard of Nebulon in the process of modernising our application infrastructure,” said Hamid Amjadi, CEO at Prime Clinical. “HPE ProLiant servers using AMD EPYC processors give us the performance we need, and Nebulon makes it much easier to manage our application infrastructure—it is cloud-simple and much better integrated than anything else we have seen.
“HPE and AMD have a long history of bringing performance and scalability to data centres around the globe,” said Siamak Nazari, CEO at Nebulon. “We are excited to expand our server integration to include the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus server to help customers not only bring cloud simplicity to their on-premises application infrastructure, but with this combination, help our end users drive greater business results in less time.”
