Hewlett Packard Enterprise | June 20, 2022
Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced that Datarewind, a Swedish IT service provider, has selected HPE Alletra cloud-native data infrastructure and high-performing, versatile HPE ProLiant servers to host virtual machines on behalf of its clients. The new compute, and data services solution enables Datarewind to provide its clients with improved performance and faster access to the work environment, addressing the hybrid office demands of today and creating a solid platform for readily adapting to future needs.
Datarewind provides its services to clients in Sweden, enabling users to use VDI systems during business hours and automate backups at night. Demand for VDI solutions rose as a result of the pandemic. HPE Alletra was chosen to address this demand because of its performance and scalability, as well as HPE's track record as a provider to Datarewind.
With Datarewind safeguarding client data via backups, speed and adaptability were of the highest significance when selecting a solution. With storage performance high enough to be restricted by network bandwidth rather than storage throughput, the expansion of the storage pool was considered when the contract was signed.
HPE Sweden is likewise excited to help Datarewind better serve its customers. The new HPE Alletra platform will enable Datarewind to satisfy customer SLAs and host a record number of concurrent users. It also alleviates VDI performance concerns and reduces downtime.
HPE Alletra is the edge-to-cloud data infrastructure that is native to the cloud. It includes a portfolio of workload-optimized systems that provide the architectural freedom to execute any application without restriction.
"The HPE Alletra solution has enabled Datarewind to develop its new cloud offering and position itself better on the service provider market, with superior performance, high availability and scalability. The HPE Alletra 6000 cloud native storage technology allows them to create a strong and attractive as-a-service offering for their clients."
