Strategic alliance: Red Hat and HPE

Open technology, enterprise credibility

HPE and Red Hat work together to provide market-leading, industry-standard alternatives to proprietary operating environments. In addition to Linux and x86 server market leadership, Red Hat and HPE offer superior price and performance on cloud, virtualization, storage, Linux®, and middleware technologies.

Red Hat solutions + HPE hardware: a winning combination

You can run your business with confidence with industry-leading technology and a tested combination of hardware and software. Red Hat and HPE work together to bring your organization a complete solution that fits your technology life cycle.

Our solid foundation for critical applications and solutions is based on open, industry-standard technology. Building on an open platform can lead to massive cost savings, without compromising security, performance, or scalability. And, more importantly, it frees customers from vendor lock-in. The Red Hat and HPE combination is backed by a mature ecosystem of more than 8,000 certified solutions from independent software vendors.

In the Enterprise, stability and reliability are important to support a full range of datacenter models. Optimizing Red Hat Linux on HPE ProLiant servers extends the power of open source compute, allowing clients to virtualize, automate and scale up their environments, all while meeting business requirements.

Ground-breaking performance for HPE Proliant Servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux

HPE's ProLiant DL580 Gen9 Server (with Intel Xeon processors and HPE Smart Array controllers), running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, has achieved the No.1 four-processor (4P) result on the SPECvirt_sc2013 benchmark. These results prove that this combination is ideal for running workloads in a virtualized environment.

HPE's ProLiant DL 560, 580, and 380 Gen9 Servers (with Intel Xeon processors) running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 continue to increase performance scalability on the 2-tier SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark. Testing reported a significant performance gain when moving from 2 processors to 4 processors.
