LAS VEGAS, June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at HPE Discover Las Vegas 2017, CloudGenera, the industry's best-in-class independent cloud decision engine, announced a strategic relationship with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to bring the CloudAssist platform to North American HPE resellers.
"CloudAssist can help HPE partners to articulate the HPE Synergy advantage in a very tangible way to customers and prospects," said CloudGenera Chief Revenue Officer Jason C. McKinney. "We provide a clear, agnostic tool that outlines the cost savings and price advantages of specific workload placement decisions, giving resellers the information they need about the benefits of on-premise and off-premise solutions."
With CloudAssist, HPE Partners and customers can make educated workload placement decisions for their business based on the simple input of demographics, required service levels, security concerns and application design. A patented algorithm automatically matches individual customer needs to a range of private, hybrid and public cloud solutions. The user is able to visually compare offerings in a "scorecard" that models the specific cost benefits of available workload placement options, including HPE Synergy.
"With CloudAssist we are able to give enterprises an unbiased, agnostic view into what would be best placed in the cloud and what should stay in the datacenter," said Paul Miller, Vice President of Marketing , HPE Software-defined and Cloud Group. "This provides our partner ecosystem with the tools it needs to truly define the cost benefits of HPE Synergy in order to land on their right mix of Hybrid IT solutions. In fact, recent data from the CloudGenera platform showed a 2x advantage over other solutions, quantifying the savings that an enterprise can expect to receive."
CloudGenera automatically pulls data from public cloud service providers and maintains reference architectures for common private cloud deployment models to stay current on what the market can offer. This quantitative data is continually quality assured and supplemented with market research often missed by other manual and automated methods for workload placement to ensure the best possible decisioning between private, hybrid and public cloud solutions.
The CloudGenera CloudAssist platform will be demonstrated at Discover 2017 this week in the Hybrid IT area of the show floor.
