HPE Helion Overview

What is HPE Helion?
The HPE Helion Platforms are HPE Helion OpenStack, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering, and HPE Helion Stackato, a cloud-native application platform. They are based on industry-leading open source projects in OpenStack and Cloud Foundry and provide enterprise customers with flexibility in software and hardware. With HPE Helion OpenStack and HPE Helion Stackato, you can simplify the development, deployment, and delivery of applications you design for cloud. Enterprises often need to quickly develop, deploy, and scale cloud applications across a mix of public and private clouds. To achieve this, they architect cloud apps to be modular and easy to modify in an agile way. The HPE Helion Platform enables large organizations to gain the benefits of supporting these new types of apps, while still meeting required SLAs for security, governance, and privacy.

HPE Helion is also known as HPE Helion Cloud, HP Helion .

CTO at Indra

It provides access to private and public clouds. I would like to be able to select the best private cloud.

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor, I look at the relationship and the support that this vendor can provide. We have a very good relationship with HPE. The delivery is normally good. We have had a good experience with different kinds of HPE products in the past.
Head Of Security at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
We focus on our skillsets and core competencies while they help us fix customers' problems. It lacks a single dashboard to support all our services.

What other advice do I have?

Reach out to your account manager, and give them a refined understanding of what you want to achieve. HPE is a very large organization. You just need to be very clear on what you want to experience.

Cloud Architect at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
We're hoping to offer it as an open stack solution to our customers. Initial setup takes a lot longer than we expected.

What other advice do I have?

Give it a go. Maybe look at other upstream vendors, maybe. Obviously with the announcement that Helion's going across to SUSE now, hopefully that development train will accelerate and things will stay more in line with the open upstream. When choosing a vendor, cost is obviously important. What sort of support we can get from that vendor is also important, as well as a good working relationship.

Tech support normally take less than four hours to get back to us.

It has a really great GUI so it's easy to use. You can get an overview of the different services you define and how to automate them and bring them into the infrastructure.
