HPE teams up with Mesosphere to modernize IT workspaces

In an effort to help customers modernize their datacenters and expand its own leadership in the container market, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced a new global original equipment manufacturing (OEM) and reseller deal with enterprise software company Mesosphere.

Announced on Feb. 7, the agreement means HPE will “build and deliver infrastructure solutions, including server, storage and technology services designed for Mesosphere DC/OS,” the company’s open-source platform used for developing, deploying and scaling application technologies.

As a result, customers will be able to use Mesosphere‘s single platform to run container applications, Platform-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, distributed databases, big data analytics and stateful services.

Peter Schrady, senior vice president and general manager of small to medium-sized businesses and enterprise server solutions at HPE, said that in today’s world, enterprises need to “engage a lot of users, process real-time data at scale and roll out services fast. That means running distributed systems of containers, big data services and everything else that modern applications require elastically across on-premises IT and in the cloud.”

This partnership marks HPE’s continued push to be a leader in the enterprise container field, which it hopes will inspire customers to “fully embrace the benefits and flexibility hybrid IT provides, such as optimized performance and faster service time to market.”

Extended partnership

This agreement is “the latest chapter” of the relationship between Mesosphere and HPE, with the former announcing on Feb. 7 that it has also joined the HPE-led Cloud28+ community as a technology partner. Cloud28+ provides a platform for customers and HPE partners to find hybrid IT solutions, share knowledge, and create new connections.
