Global CIO Forum in association with JDS and HPE host summit on Go Beyond with HPE HCI 2.0

On April 7, Global CIO Forum in association with JDS and HPE hosted a virtual summit titled Go Beyond with HPE HCI 2.0.

First generation hyper-converged infrastructure, HCI, made life easy for predictable workloads but when it comes to unpredictable workloads it takes a new solution to satisfy customers. Now, second generation hyper-converged infrastructure or HCI 2.0 solve this dilemma in a unique way.

The following topics were covered during the virtual summit:

  • Providing a scalable platform HCI 2.0 for business-critical workloads with ultimate efficiency
  • Consolidate virtual, physical and containers within single platform HCI 2.0.
  • Achieving a cost-efficient true hybrid cloud
  • Protecting your investment in ProLiant servers

Kenny Daou, Solutions Architect, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Samer Naber, Division Manager, JDS were the speakers at the virtual event.

Daou started the presentation by highlighting that IT has become more of a business partner these days. In today’s world, where less resources are expected to do more, hyper-converged infrastructure offers simple experience, it is modular and VM-centric, Daou explained.

He remarked that cloud is not a destination, it is a journey for HPE. While elaborating on HPE Nimble Storage dHCI, Daou said that the solution offers unified management experience with global intelligence and provides a single experience for every workload.

HPE hyper-converged infrastructure is optimised for Edge, optimised for core and is cloud connected. Daou spoke about the key capabilities of HPE Simplivity, HPE Cloud Volumes and HPE Nimble Storage dHCI.

Hyper-converged experience has made life easier, simple to deploy, simple to manage and simple to scale, he remarked.


The virtual summit was concluded by a very engaging Q&A session.
