HPE has announced today a new ProLiant DL380-based hyper-converged server-- one that is for remote and branch offices and mid-sized businesses.

Overall, the HC 380 converges DL-380 compute and DAS, StoreVirtual storage software, vSphere hypervisor, the GUI and networking chores to provide an all-in-one scale-out system.

It has five "nines" (99.999 percent) availability and can easily scale from two to sixteen nodes.

Ric Lewis, HPE's Converged Data Center Infrastructure general manager says that customers for the HC 380 will have a "VM vending machine at their fingertips."

The new feature about the HC 380 is its graphic user interface and user experience management software that automates things to make life simpler.

HPE says the product installs in just a few minutes, calling it a self-install, and then virtual machines can be deployed with five clicks.

Users can update firmware and drivers in only three clicks, without service interruption, HPE asserts.

HPE says "built-in analytics and tools enable IT system admins to reduce 'virtual machine sprawl' and over-provisioning of VMs by 85 to 90 percent."

The HC 380 can be bought with an HPE Flexible Capacity deal, combining product and support with predictable monthly payment options.

Alternatively, HPE Pre-Provisioning provides pre-configured hardware in advance of need, and there is a pay-per-virtual-machine scheme.

Enterprise customers get a single point of contact for the HPE hardware and software, as well as VMware environments, with rapid response and 24/7 operations by HPE's support staff, who are described as senior experts.

The HC 380 will be available on March 31st with pricing previously promised by Meg Whitman to be 20 percent less than Nutanix, revealed at that time.
