Breaking down NFV

NFV assists communications service providers (CSPs) to face and monitor the rapidly growing network traffic, declining profit margins, over-the-top players launching new services while the customers expecting more of it at the other end. The HPE OpenNFV enables CSPs to develop monolithic, proprietary appliances to address more agile cloud networks facilitated by NFVs. The NFV solutions from HPE are based upon the CSP-defined ETSI standards and developed on the open-source architecture which helps firms minimize capital and operating expenditures. HPE addresses this design-to-deployment cycle through interoperability testing across its five worldwide labs.

Red Hat OpenStack-HPE NFV System Collaboration

HPE and Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT) announced on February 22, 2017, that they are working collectively to accelerate wide-scale deployment of network functions virtualization based on fully open, standard-based and production-ready portfolios. HPE will reportedly offer ready-to-use, pre-integrated HPE NFV solutions and HPE Validated Configurations which will incorporate the Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Ceph Storage for communications service providers (CSPs). This expansion is viewed by HPE as collaboration to accelerate network transformations for CSPs. These new offerings are a succession to the existing alliance between the two Companies where the primary focus is on helping clients surpass the inflexibility and high costs by shifting reallocating resources to business innovation.

HPE Growth Strategies

HPE recently acquired SimpliVity, a privately held, leading provider of software-defined, hyperconverged infrastructure for $650 million in cash, on January 17, 2017. Through this acquisition HPE aimed to bank on the rapidly growing hyperconverged infrastructure market which was estimated to be about $24 billion for FY16, and it is expected to grow at a compound growth rate of 25% annually. HPE viewed this agreement as an opportunity to address enterprise businesses where, the Company plans to integrate a system which incorporates computation, storage and networking through a user-friendly software platform, minimizing the need for a dedicated IT staff.

Networking and Cloud-Driven Portfolio

HPE has probably refocused its growth strategy for the FY17, where it aims to leverage the growing hybrid cloud space as enterprises are observing a shift from on-premise data centres to the cloud. Be it the collaboration with Microsoft to deliver cloud solutions, or the more recent acquisition of SimpliVity to address the hyperconverged infrastructure market, HPE has aimed to bank on almost every major segment concerning its enterprise clients.
