HPE SimpliVity 2600 Hyperconverged System Supports VDI, Edge Computing
July 05, 2018 / Jeffrey Burt
Hewlett Packard Enterprise is continuing to keep a focus on the network edge and remote offices with the rollout this week of the SimpliVity 2600, a highly dense hyperconverged system offering that the company said will fit well in space-constrained environments. The 2U (3.5-inch) SimpliVity 2600 can work with such applications as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for data centers where space is at a premium and with internet of things deployments where compute and storage resources are needed at the network edge in such places as manufacturing floors, smart cities and oil rigs. Company officials said the system is the first “software-defined” system in the SimpliVity family, enabling the speed and density needed.
