Hewlett Packard Enterprise Releases Converged Systems for IoT; Enables Decision Making at the Edge
LAS VEGAS, NV: Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announces the release of Edgeline EL1000 and Edgeline EL4000, the industry’s first converged systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). These systems include built-in features such as computing, storage and data-capture to deliver analytics and insights at the edge to enable real-time decision making.
The EL1000 and EL4000 systems from HPE are optimized to deliver heavy workloads of data analytics and insights, graphically intense data visualization, and real time response at the edge. They are also built to withstand work in hardened environments and are capable to handle shock, vibration and extreme temperatures.
The proliferation of IoT includes vast amounts of data being generated every day. Until now, organizations had to quickly capture, process and analyze that data which then had to be transported from remote locations to a data center or cloud for analysis to enable real-time control and decision making, which can be a slow, risky and inefficient process. With HPE’s new technology, these systems enable organizations to harness the power of data by delivering real time analysis and machine learning at the edge.
HPE Edgeline IoT Systems
HPE also announces that the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform canrun on the Edgeline EL4000, capable of delivering predictive analytic insights from in-database machine learning algorithms across a broad range of IoT analytic use cases. To secure traffic back from the data center, the EL1000 and EL4000 also supports Aruba's Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) VPN client. Aruba's VIA provides organizations with an automated, zero-touch, secure VPN, suitable for both commercial and high-security government IoT applications.
Dynamic IoT Security
HPE announces enhanced IoT security capabilities, new services and partner ecosystem to advance the adoption and impact of the Internet of Things. With HPE adding enhancements to Aruba ClearPass, IT can profile new IoT devices, enforce security policies, and exchange policy status with other security systems. ClearPass also integrates with existing network infrastructures from any vendor enabling IT teams to easily automate and scale rather than become an inhibitor for new digital transformation initiatives.
HPE introduces the HPE IoT Transformation workshop (TW), an interactive HPE facilitated workshop that helps customers identify their IoT vision and strategy and gain business technology alignment. This discussion takes a fact-based, analytical approach to help customers position and align their vision, identify current and future states, and determine a set of specific transformational IoT projects.
HPE is collaborating with industrial IoT bests like GE Digital, National Instruments and PTC as part of its go to market plan to deliver joint solutions to customers. These solutions address industrial use cases for the aerospace, oil and gas, manufacturing, automotive and energy industries by combining the very best of Operational Technology (OT) and IT.
"Organizations that take advantage of the vast amount of data and run deep analytics at the edge can become digital disrupters within their industries," says Dr. Tom Bradicich, vice president and general manager, Servers and IoT Systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "HPE has built machine learning and real time analytics into its IoT platforms, and provides services that help customers understand how data can best be leveraged, enabling them to optimize maintenance management, improve operations efficiency and ultimately, drive significant cost savings."
