HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker aims to bring better management and coordination to cloud computing

HPE has taken the wraps off HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker, a managed service announced at HPE Discover in London today.

The broker allows businesses to provision, access, consolidate and securely control services across multiple cloud workloads and providers, HPE explained.

Huge threat

With the proliferation of easy to access cloud apps, solutions provisioned without IT approval can pose a huge threat to a company’s security. This can potentially also decrease cost savings of having a hybrid infrastructure.

success in the cloudThe HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker service is said to provide IT administrators with control and instant visibility over a firm’s IT assets, from traditional IT to private and public clouds, and allows the orchestration of all these assets to improve responsiveness, financial management and end-user satisfaction.

Eugene O’Callaghan, VP, enterprise services workload and cloud, HPE, said: “While cloud computing promises organisations significant advantages in terms of speed, agility and lower costs, those advantages are lost when organisations face a sprawl of unmanaged, uncoordinated cloud instances.

“HPE’s unique managed service-driven approach unifies all enterprise cloud resources together, giving our clients a single view of their IT activities and helps businesses accelerate innovation in an orchestrated, secure and cost-effective manner.”

The HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker will support a full range of the HPE Helion portfolio, including HPE Helion Managed Virtual Private Cloud, HPE Helion CloudSystem and HPE Helion OpenStack, as well as traditional datacentre services such as VMWare technology, and a range of public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services among others.

The HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker service is delivered as a managed service in a consumption based model and will be available in 2016.
