“Hewlett Packard Enterprise has one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolios of IoT solutions, offering compute, connectivity, data analysis, security and a strong ecosystem, all aimed at simplifying IoT for customers and driving business outcomes,” said Neelam Dhawan, Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Group and Country Managing Director, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India. “The new solutions today are important elements of our strategy of delivering more connectivity and computing power at ‘the edge,’ and helping customers maximise the value and minimise the risks from IoT at the speed of business.”
As per Gartner, 6.4 billion connected things will be in use in 2016, up 30 per cent from 2015. The rapid proliferation of IoT devices, data and connectivity has the power to enable the creation of new offerings, improved efficiency, better decision-making, and more effective risk-management across organisations.
Delivering business outcomes today quickly and securely requires intelligence to enable real-time decisions at the edge. Moving computing power, data acquisition and data management to the edge of an organisation’s network, outside of the traditional data centre, allows faster access to relevant data, requires less bandwidth to transport useless data, and ultimately accelerates the time to insight for organisations.
The new HPE Edgeline IoT Systems are the result of a joint partnership between HPE and Intel to help deliver proven, open solutions for the IoT market. The HPE Edgeline IoT Systems 10 and 20 sit at the network edge, enabling customers to securely aggregate and analyse data in real-time and control devices and things. Available in ruggedised, mobile and rack-mounted versions, the systems are suitable for a wide spectrum of industrial, logistics, transportation, healthcare, government and retail applications and have been certified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services.
The first new HPE Edgeline IoT Systems are available now and unify IoT data access with device management, configuration and control. The products include:
- HPE IoT System EL10 – A rugged price/performance-optimised edge gateway designed for entry-level deployments and built with long lifecycle components.
- HPE IoT System EL20 – A rugged performance-optimised edge gateway with additional features for higher compute capabilities and ease of installation, designed for more demanding high-volume deployments and built with long life cycle components.
Future members of the Edgeline family will offer investment protection and scalability, as they incorporate HPE’s proven Moonshot system architecture. Moonshot technology offers powerful computing capability while using significantly less energy and space than typical servers, which are important advantages for IoT.
