Drive savings for edge and ROBO workloads

HPE SimpliVity’s efficient data services, centralized management, and comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery deliver savings of up to 66% versus traditional three-tier, cloud, or other HCI infrastructure.

Power and protect your virtualized infrastructure

Simplify the VM experience by delivering true hyperconvergence at scale — from edge to data center — with efficiency, resiliency, density, and simplicity.


Operational efficiency reduces capacity requirements and improves application speed and performance. Always-on, inline deduplication and compression only needs to happen once, delivering 90% capacity savings across primary storage and backup – guaranteed!


Achieve high availability with just 2 nodes. HPE SimpliVity tolerates simultaneous drive failures without data loss, and built-in data protection and disaster recovery features help keep data safe.


Flexible, consolidated resource pools are cost effective building blocks for a variety of workloads. The award-winning HPE SimpliVity 2600 provides space-constrained environments with high-density, enterprise grade features and functionality.


Simple and automated operations eliminate the need for specialized IT skills. VM administrators manage the entire IT stack from a single, familiar interface. Back up, clone, or restore a VM in 3 clicks, guaranteed, using policy-based, VM-centric management.


A critical enterprise solution during the difficult months of 2020, HPE SimpliVity’s intelligent HCI enabled customers to ramp up their virtual desktop infrastructure deployments for remote employees.


Unpack the latest Forrester Total Economic Impact™ study — which reveals how HPE SimpliVity customers reduced TCO by 69%, while achieving a 192% return on investment with a short seven-month payback.

Adopting hyperconvergence and adapting to the new realities in retail

“We were initially running 300 virtual desktops and needed to spin up 700 more to give our employees the flexibility to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using HPE SimpliVity, we were able to do so in just 12 minutes.” – Murat Zobu, System and Cloud Infrastructure Manager at MIGROS TICARET A.S.

Leverage the simplicity of HCI for new use cases

HPE has fundamentally evolved the conception of what HCI can be in two ways: by moving from a software-defined experience to an AI-driven one — with the machine learning predictive analytics of HPE InfoSight — and by expanding the field of HCI use cases with the introduction of disaggregated HCI (dHCI) for mission-critical workloads.


IT leaders across industries know that data is at the heart of application workloads and the key to insight, innovation, and advantage. You need an intelligent data strategy to unleash the power of your data — and we’re the intelligent IT experts.
