Hewlett Packard Enterprise Releases New Converged Infrastructure Platforms for the IoT
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has introduced the Edgeline EL1000 and Edgeline EL4000 Converged Systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). These systems integrate data capture, control, compute and storage to deliver analytics and insights at the edge for real-time decision making. HPE has also announced enhanced IoT security capabilities, new services and an IoT partner ecosystem.

Edgeline Converged Systems

HPE new IoT solutions help provide real-time analytics and machine learning at the edge, where the “things” are. The Edgeline Converged Systemsfor the IoT integrate compute, storage, data capture, control and enterprise-class systems and device management built to thrive in hardened environments and handle shock, vibration and extreme temperatures. The EL1000 and EL4000 are optimized to deliver heavy-duty data analytics and insights, graphically intense data visualization, and real time response at the edge.

Vertica Analytics Platform

The HPE Vertica Analytics Platform runs on the Edgeline EL4000, delivering historical and predictive analytic insights from in-database machine learning algorithms across a broad range of IoT analytic use cases. Vertica on Edgeline brings applied machine learning to the edge to deliver closed-loop analytics that enable organizations to derive immediate insights from their IoT initiatives. 

In addition, to secure traffic back to the data center, the EL1000 and EL4000 support the Aruba Virtual Intranet AccessTM  (VIA) VPN client. Aruba’s VIATM provides organizations an automated, zero-touch, secure VPN, and is available for both commercial and high-security government IoT applications.

Aruba ClearPass IoT Security

With enhancements to Aruba ClearPass, IT teams can profile new IoT devices, enforce security policies, and exchange policy status with other security systems including mobile device management systems. ClearPass integrates with existing network infrastructures from any vendor enabling IT teams to automate and scale.

HPE IoT Transformation Workshop

HPE also introduced the HPE IoT Transformation Workshop (TW), an interactive HPE facilitated workshop that helps companies define their IoT vision and strategy and gain business technology alignment. This structured discussion takes a fact-based, analytical approach to help customers achieve alignment on their vision, identify current and future states, and determine a set of specific transformational IoT projects. The IoT TW is the first step in a suite of services designed to help customers successfully implement IoT solutions based on business needs and industry parameters. In addition, HPE’s Analytic Consulting and Predictive Maintenance Services deliver advanced analytics to business processes to achieve objectives, reduce costs and improve efficiencies.

IoT Partnerships 

HPE is partnering with industrial IoT companies including 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 to combine the very best of Operational Technology (OT) and IT to support the aerospace, oil and gas, manufacturing, automotive and energy industries.

IoT Innovation Labs

HPE also announced four IoT Innovation Labs across the globe. HPE and Intel operate these labs to help companies envision how IoT can be applied in their industry, build and test IoT applications, and access technical expertise. In addition, partners and customers are able to engage, interact, assess and collaborate on solutions development and their applications. The labs are now open and located at HPE facilities in Houston, Texas, Grenoble, France, Bangalore, India and Singapore.
