HPE launches converged systems for IoT

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched the industry’s first converged systems for the Internet of Things (IoT).

HPE’s Edgeline EL1000 and Edgeline EL4000 integrate data capture, control, compute and storage to deliver analytics and insights at the edge to enable real-time decision making.

HPE in a statement claimed that its IoT solutions enable organizations in oil and gas, manufacturing and telecom industries to utilize their data by delivering real-time analytics and machine learning at the edge.

Tom Bradicich, vice president and general manager, Servers and IoT Systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, said: “HPE has built machine learning and real time analytics into its IoT platforms, and provides services that help customers understand how data can best be leveraged, enabling them to optimize maintenance management, improve operations efficiency and ultimately, drive significant cost savings.”

HPE also announced that the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform runs on the Edgeline EL4000, delivering historical and predictive analytic insights from in-database machine learning algorithms across a range of IoT analytic use cases.

Vertica on Edgeline brings applied machine learning to the edge to deliver closed-loop analytics that enable organizations to derive insights from their IoT initiatives.

HPE also introduced the HPE IoT Transformation workshop (TW), a workshop that helps customers to define their IoT vision and strategy and gain business technology alignment.

Meanwhile, HPE has tied up with GE Digital to unite IoT technologies from HPE with GE’s industrial expertise and its Predix platform to bring digital know-how to the industry sector.

Together, the two companies will enable industrial analytics from the edge to the cloud.

HPE will be a preferred storage and server infrastructure provider for Predix cloud technologies. To enhance the service offering and accelerate time to market, HPE will provide support for the design, implementation and rollout of the Predix platform. GE will also leverage HPE technology for much of its virtual infrastructure as well as some OEM offerings.

IC Insights predicted Industrial IoT implementations would reach $12.4 billion in revenue in 2015, nearly doubling from $6.4 billion in 2012.
