- HPE says the platform improves productivity for developers and delivers new code releases faster
According to a report by Businesswire, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched its HPE Container Platform, a Kubernetes container system designed to run both cloud and on-premises applications. The company says with HPE Container Platform, enterprise customers can accelerate application development for new and existing apps, running on bare-metal or virtualized infrastructure, on any public cloud, and at the edge.
100 percent open source Kubernetes
The HPE Container Platform is built on innovations from HPE’s acquisitions of BlueData and MapR, with 100 percent open source Kubernetes. The company says the platform addresses the requirements for large-scale enterprise Kubernetes deployments across a wide range of use cases, from machine learning and edge analytics to Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipelines and application modernization.
Kumar Sreekanti, senior vice president and chief technology officer of Hybrid IT at HPE, says, “We’re combining our expertise and intellectual property from recent acquisitions together with open source Kubernetes to deliver an unmatched enterprise-class container platform. Our container-first approach will provide enterprises with a faster and lower cost path to application modernization, optimized for bare-metal and extensible to any infrastructure from edge to cloud.”
Improves productivity for developers
The company says that the benefits of HPE Container Platform are that it modernises non cloud-native monolithic applications without re-architecting them and provides the ability to build applications once and run them anywhere, bridging the gap between on-premises, public clouds and the edge. It also improves productivity for developers and delivers new code releases faster says the company. The Container Platform also provides enterprise-class security, performance, and reliability at lower cost claims HPE.
