With composable infrastructure, resources are logically pooled so that administrators don't have to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application.  Your IT administrators need not be concerned with the physical location of infrastructure components.

The software's developer defines the application's requirements for physical infrastructure using policies and service profiles with the software API calling to  compose the infrastructure it needs to run on bare metal, as a virtual machine (VM) or in a container.  When the software application requests infrastructure to run, available services are located through an automated discovery process and resources are allocated on demand. When the infrastructure resource is no longer required, it is re-appropriated so it can be allocated to another application that needs it.

The goal of a composable infrastructure is to allow an enterprise data center to use its own physical infrastructure in a more cost-effective manner by reducing waste and the amount of time it takes to deploy a new application. The concept of pooling physical infrastructure resources and building infrastructure logically is supported by the growing popularity of software-defined networking (SDN), object storage, converged infrastructure and DevOps.

HPE Synergy, a powerful software-defined solution, enables you to compose fluid pools of physical and virtual compute, storage, and fabric resources into any configuration for any application.

Hyperconverged is software-defined with tightly-integrated compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources.  A stark contrast from the traditional converged infrastructure, where each of the resources is typically handled by a discrete component that serves a singular purpose.

Hyperconverged platforms include a hypervisor for virtualized computing, software-defined storage, and virtualized networking, and they typically run on standard, off-the-shelf servers. Nodes can be clustered together to create pools of shared compute and storage resources, designed for efficient use.

For IT leaders who are embarking on data center modernization projects, hyperconvergence can provide the agility of public cloud infrastructure without relinquishing control of hardware on their own premises.

HPE SimpliVity is an enterprise-grade hyperconverged platform that speeds application performance, improves efficiency and resiliency, and restores VMs in Seconds.

Traditional or converged infrastructure is a standalone set of servers which involves a preconfigured package of software and hardware in a single system for simplified management.  With converged infrastructure, the compute, storage, and networking components are usually separate components.  It means optimizing infrastructure for traditional and Hybrid IT workloads while maintaining cost, flexibility and operational simplicity.  The servers are usually standard or high compute rack mounted servers, and also blade servers.

HPE ProLiant DL servers are designed for agility through management and tuning features as well as enhanced performance with HPE Scalable Persistent Memory. Match compute to workload and optimize based on your unique needs.

CPP provides insight to our clients to optimize Virtualized environments for performance and cost reduction.  Through consolidation, platform migration, or development and deployment of containers, savings are being realized in software licensing, support, and infrastructure.

CPP Associates consultants are certified with VMWare and help customers virtualize their environment by implementing VMWare.  They also design and implement VMWare Horizon VDI solution for desktop operating systems. VDI is a variation on the client-server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing.

Docker is the company driving the container movement and the only container platform provider to address every application across the hybrid cloud. Today’s businesses are under pressure to digitally transform but are constrained by existing applications and infrastructure while rationalizing an increasingly diverse portfolio of clouds, datacenters and application architectures. Docker enables true independence between applications and infrastructure and developers and IT ops to unlock their potential and creates a model for better collaboration and innovation.

A container platform is a complete solution that allows organizations to solve multiple problems across a diverse set of requirements. It is more than a piece of technology and orchestration - it delivers sustainable benefits throughout your organization by providing all the pieces an enterprise operation requires including security, governance, automation, support and certification over the entire application lifecycle. Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) is an enterprise-ready container platform that enables IT leaders to choose how to cost-effectively build and manage their entire application portfolio at their own pace, without fear of architecture and infrastructure lock-in.

Learn about disaster recovery and data protection in the world of flash-based storage.

Object storage is an alternative to file storage for unstructured data. Object technology contains extended metadata. Each object has a unique identifier that lets a server retrieve it from any physical location. Object storage use cases include cloud storage, photos, video, audio and large image files.

The Private Cloud is also referred to as Enterprise Clouds, refer to computing via a cloud concept where IT services are offered through a private IT infrastructure. Private clouds are ideal for companies who already have data centers running their Production & Disaster Recovery infrastructure, potentially in multiple sites. Benefits of private clouds include the ability to centralize large IT installations and maintain a higher level of data security without public cloud exposure.

Cloud computing offers compute, storage and resources available via public internet mainly via pay-per-usage model. The services offered via public cloud have grown dramatically since the concept was first introduced. The main benefits of using a public cloud service are it reduces the need for organizations to invest in and maintain their own on-premises IT resources; it enables scalability to meet workload and user demands; and there are fewer wasted resources because customers only pay for the resources they use.

There is a long list of cloud computing organizations each with its own benefits, CPP has partnered with the major organizations, AWS, Microsoft and Google. Also, CPP has partnered with other providers that can be more attentive and more specific to organizations specific needs such as WebAir or Greenhouse Data Solutions
