Hewlett Packard Enterprise Tackles Cloud Sprawl with New Cloud Service Broker

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker, a new managed service that allows businesses to provision, access, consolidate and securely control services across multiple cloud workloads and providers.

With the rise of easily accessible cloud applications, solutions provisioned without IT approval threaten an organization’s security and potentially decrease the cost savings of having a hybrid infrastructure. The HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker service provides IT administrators with control and instant visibility over an organization’s IT assets, from traditional IT to private and public clouds, and allows the orchestration of all of these assets to improve responsiveness, financial management and end-user satisfaction.

“While cloud computing promises organizations significant advantages in terms of speed, agility, and lower costs, those advantages are lost when organizations face a sprawl of unmanaged, uncoordinated cloud instances,” said Marshal Correia, Vice President & General Manager, Enterprise Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India. “HPE’s unique managed services-driven approach unifies all enterprise cloud resources together, giving our clients a single view of their IT activities and helps businesses accelerate innovation in an orchestrated, secure and cost-effective manner.”

The HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker will support a full range of the HPE Helion portfolio, including HPE Helion Managed Virtual Private Cloud, HPE Helion CloudSystem, and HPE Helion OpenStack, as well as traditional data center services such as VMWare technology, and a range of public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services among others. The HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker service is delivered as a managed service in a consumption based model and will be generally available in 2016.
