HPE is continuously reinventing and improving how we live and work. A worldwide edge-to-cloud business that provides distinctive, open, and intelligent technology solutions, HPE has strong expertise throughout the entire IT ecosystem.

We discussed previously HPE’s recent acquisitions of industry-leading, data-centric AI/ML solutions for businesses. The HPE Machine Learning Development System (MLDS) builds on HPE’s strategic investments in Determined AI. They have combined their robust machine learning (ML) platform, the HPE Machine Learning Development Environment (MLDE), with their world-leading AI and high-performance computing (HPC) offerings.

With the new HPE MLDS, users can speed up the typical time-to-value to realise results from building and training machine models, from weeks and months to days.

HPE Machine Learning Development Environment (MLDE)

The HPE MLDE is a purpose-built, powerful, and user-friendly solution. It offers a pre-configured, tested and fully deployed AI solution for model development and training at scale, with little code rewrites or infrastructure modifications required. The solution is a completely performant, out-of-the-box system that can be used by anybody, not just enterprises that have enormous reservoirs of IT infrastructure, resources, and AI experience.

Businesses face various hurdles when it comes to using AI at scale. Deep learning model training is a complex process, and ML experts currently spend their efforts on AI infrastructure management rather than designing new models or performing training. ML developers and IT experts should look to maintain specialised infrastructure, such as GPUs, to offer sophisticated AI and ML workloads. The HPE MLDS is a complete solution for developing and training ML models that comes pre-configured, fully installed, and ready to use. Consequently, IT complexity is reduced, and engineers’ time can be used more efficiently.

With the assistance of the HPE MLDS, businesses have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to the process of developing new models and training. This is made feasible by the platform’s ability to carry out deep learning training operations across GPUs without requiring modifications to the underlying code or infrastructure. The platform allows for the tracking of experiments, which improves collaboration among ML engineers. It assists engineers in monitoring infrastructure and resource use. The automated optimisation of hyperparameters discovers and trains more accurate models in a shorter amount of time, provides flexibility and a foundation for heterogeneity.

The HPE MLDS is a comprehensive solution that includes a platform for the training and development of models, high-performance computing, networking, accelerators, and other components, as well as services for installation and maintenance. With this solution, companies are able to leverage AI for mission-critical applications.

HPE Swarm Learning – a solution built for the edge and distributed sites

Most AI model training occurs at a central location and relies on merged datasets. This strategy, however, is inefficient and costly, as large volumes of data must be moved back to the source. Data privacy, regulations, and ownership rules can also limit data exchange and movement, leading to erroneous and biased models.

To this objective, HPE introduced HPE Swarm Learning; the industry’s first privacy-preserving, decentralised machine learning framework for the edge or distributed sites.

HPE is contributing significantly to the swarm learning movement by delivering an enterprise-class solution that lets businesses cooperate, create, and accelerate the power of AI models, while maintaining ethics, data protection, and governance requirements.

Businesses can make faster decisions at the point of impact by training models and exploiting insights at the edge, resulting in improved experiences and outcomes.

HPE Swarm Learning employs blockchain technology to ensure that only learnings acquired at the edge are shared, rather than the data itself. The blockchain network enables edge locations to share insights in a trusted manner. If a bad actor attempts to penetrate the swarm, the smart contract detects the imitator, defends the swarm, and can block unauthorised entry.

Scientists, researchers, and AI engineers can now train on a greater amount of data while still adhering to all privacy standards. This results in more accurate estimates, reduced prejudice, and faster answers. It also saves on IT infrastructure costs by eliminating unnecessary data movement and duplication.

HPE Swarm Learning can assist a range of organisations in collaborating and improving their insights:

  • Hospitals
  • Banking and financial services
  • Manufacturing sites

Workload Churn and Balancing IT Environment Choices

Workload Churn and Balancing IT Environment Choices

Workload Churn and Balancing IT Environment Choices

Workload churn activity is an indication of the evolution of IT operations. While the public cloud delivers significant benefits and flexibility, the future of IT is hybrid.

The public cloud delivers significant benefits and flexibility, while on-premise environments, in many cases, deliver superior computing performance, data storage, data movement, and disaster recovery plans, as well as security and regulatory compliance requirements.

One of HPE’s leading workload hosting solutions is GreenLake, which combines the best of public and private cloud and delivers an elastic as-a-service platform that can run on-premise, at the edge, or in a co-location facility. HPE GreenLake integrates the simplicity and agility of the cloud with the governance, compliance, and visibility that comes with hybrid IT.

What is workload churn, and how common is it? 

Workload churn (also referred to as workload repatriation) is the process of migrating workloads from the public cloud to on-premise or dedicated off-premise environments. Workload churn is not a new concept. It began when the public cloud became a viable alternative to traditional datacentre operations. The value proposition of the public cloud was its ability to offload a datacentre and IT infrastructure management into a service provider’s datacentre. Rather than requiring substantial investment in IT infrastructure, public cloud aligned the operating expenses with service usage.

However, organisations quickly realised the limitations of the public cloud and that it couldn’t fully replace corporate IT operations. A “backward” migration occurred, involving workloads that either were moved into or started in the public cloud being moved into dedicated environments. IDC research shows that such repatriation activity happens almost as often as workload migration into the public cloud. In IDC’s February 2021 Servers and Storage Workload Survey, about three-quarters of respondents who run workloads in the public cloud indicated that they plan to move some of their workloads, partially or fully, into the dedicated cloud or non-cloud environments.

Does workload churn signal limited use of public cloud by enterprise IT? 

Workload churn activity is an indication of the evolution of IT operations. While the public cloud delivers significant benefits and flexibility, the future of IT is hybrid. The use of both dedicated and shared infrastructure by a single organisation and the movement of data and applications between various clouds will be common occurrences. Operations will be defined by each organisation and will depend on several factors, including the need for compute performance, data storage, data movement, and disaster recovery plans, as well as regulatory compliance.

The interoperability of dedicated and public clouds will be a major factor as well. Isolated islands of IT systems each dedicated to a particular workload often create inefficiencies in IT operations. Isolated clouds are also inefficient by modern IT standards. Finding the right balance between dedicated (private) and public cloud usage is more a continuous process for each organisation than a final state.

According to the Cloud Pulse Survey, there is increasing interest among businesses to expand the usage of dedicated cloud solutions. This trend is partially driven by the movement from non-cloud operations to cloud-based operations. The increased use of dedicated clouds is related, at least in part, to workload churn activity.

What are the major reasons for workload churn activities? 

Data security remains one of the biggest contributors to enterprises moving workloads off the public cloud into protected dedicated environments. Despite significant investments into improved security by cloud service providers, public cloud environments remain an attractive target for cybercriminals. In IDC’s 2021 Servers and Storage Workload Survey, 43% of respondents identified data security concerns as the major reason to engage in workload repatriation activity.

Another common and related concern is data privacy. While closely related to data security, data privacy has its nuances related to the exposure of private data to entities that shouldn’t have access to it. In the previously mentioned IDC workloads survey, 36% of respondents identified data privacy as the second most prevailing reason for moving workloads from public cloud to dedicated environments. Performance and bandwidth bottlenecks, the unpredictability of public cloud service pricing, and IT consolidation efforts are among the top reasons for workload churn. These reasons for moving workloads were cited by 15 – 25% of survey respondents.

Are there any differences in triggers for workload churn? 

While data security and privacy are commonly shared concerns across all workloads, workload profiles play a role in triggering repatriation activities. For example, collaborative, ERM, and CRM applications have a higher rate of private information shared between users, so data security concerns are strong factors when deciding to move at least part of the data into protected dedicated IT environments.

For other workloads, such as data management, the need for better performance plays a bigger role in determining workload repatriation. Bandwidth concerns impact a broad range of workloads that need a continuous movement of data, such as networking, security, technical, and data analytics workloads. The unpredictability of usage-based pricing often causes organisations to move VDI, application development, and collaboration workloads into dedicated environments with more predictable pricing.

What can enterprises do to evaluate optimal IT environments for the placement of workloads? 

As IDC’s Cloud Pulse Survey shows, enterprises are departing from the “public cloud only” paradigm and moving toward “public cloud first” and “public cloud also” approaches to planning their IT operations. This shift embraces the reality that hybrid cloud and multi-cloud approaches are more likely to serve organisational IT needs.

What became evident in the past few years is a move toward services-oriented IT. A variety of recent solutions give enterprise users the ability to achieve the cloud experience on dedicated infrastructure. The availability of such solutions helps with solving the dilemma of workload placement to a certain point.

Enterprises need to thoroughly evaluate the current and future needs of their workloads. What will serve their performance, storage, and data movement requirements better — on-premise solutions or public cloud services? Do the workloads require optimised infrastructure? What would be the migration path should the organisation decide to move to a public cloud? What costs are associated with different options? These are some of the questions important to answer to define the best way to serve the needs of workloads.

What’s Cybersecurity Insurance, and Does My Business Need It?

What’s Cybersecurity Insurance, and Does My Business Need It?

What’s Cybersecurity Insurance, and Does My Business Need It?

At their core, cybercriminals are opportunists. Give them the chance to test your vulnerabilities, be it your network or human emotion, and they’ll exploit you financially at every possible turn. Make no mistake: if you run a business, you’re seen as a money maker. No matter the size.

Don’t assume your standard errors and omissions (E&O), property, or general liability policies will help you if you get in a bind either. Most won’t cover cyber damages or electronic record breaches.

For that, you need something called cyber liability insurance. This primer will help you get acquainted and protect your sensitive data, as well as your bank account.

Cybersecurity Insurance, Defined

This insurance product specifically covers cyber incidents, insulating businesses from the financial losses and costs associated with them. Most cover an array of common cybercrimes including, data breaches, electronic record theft, ransomware attacks, denial of service events, and other forms of hacking.

It’s important to note that, “Cybersecurity policies can change from one month to the next, given the dynamic and fluctuating nature of the associated cyber-risks. Unlike well-established insurance plans, underwriters of cybersecurity insurance policies have limited data to formulate risk models to determine insurance policy coverages, rates, and premiums,” explains Tech Target.

How Do You Know If You Need Cybersecurity Insurance?

While no business is immune to cyberattacks, some are more likely targets than others.

Look into cyber insurance if you fall into one of these three categories:

1. You rely on electronic data to run your businesses.

Anything stored online or on a computer can be hacked. Period. Even if you make every possible effort to secure your data, the risk of a breach is never zero. If you think about all the types of information most businesses work with – social security numbers, credit card info, company financial data – it’s easy to see why they’d be of value to a threat actor. Cyber policies can help cover ransomware payments and legal fees should your data get stolen.

2. You have a sizable customer reach.

The bigger your customer base, the more money a hacker can potentially make from selling those records. It’s also a PR and regulatory nightmare to alert anyone you’ve ever done business with about a data breach you’ve incurred. With the right cyber insurance, you can insulate your business from some associated cleanup costs and regulatory fines put in place to protect consumers.

Profits alone can be like a beacon for nefarious cyber actors.

3. You’re profitable or have business assets.

So you’re turning a profit in your business. Great! That alone can be like a beacon for nefarious cyber actors. They may view it as a green light to drive up the price of your ransomware payment or simply disrupt your hard-earned revenue. And even though it’s impossible to know the total cost of a breach ahead of time, it’s likely the premium on your cyber policy will pale in comparison.

Where Do You Go For Cybersecurity Insurance Coverage?

Several reputable insurance providers now offer cybersecurity coverage on their insurance plans. You’ll typically be creating a new policy, separate from any you already have with a carrier. However, some providers do offer cybersecurity endorsements that can be packed with other policies.

If you’re curious whether your current insurance provider offers cyber coverage, contact your broker or find a cybersecurity insurance specialist.

And remember, since the threat landscape is constantly shifting, simply instating a cyber policy is likely not enough to keep your business totally protected. Insurance is focused on recovery, but you as an employer still have to take the reins on prevention.

3 Minute Read: Legacy System Modernisation with Greenlake

3 Minute Read: Legacy System Modernisation with Greenlake

3 Minute Read: Legacy System Modernisation with Greenlake

Applications are central to almost every business process. Applications need to be flexible, reliable, and secure to be effective and profitable. Improving the underlying infrastructure helps ensure that these functions (including servers, mainframes, and data storage or cloud) are continually available.

Application modernisation necessitates organisational changes, such as shifting some resources from on-premise deployments to cloud deployments. Often, legacy infrastructure may be perceived as being too old and too difficult to modernise, especially where that infrastructure sits in ERP (enterprise resource planning). ERP is at the heart of business operations and complex modernisation projects can have the potential to disrupt business processes.

There are several approaches to modernisation depending on what your business requirements are.

Pathways to updated infrastructure

System modernisation is usually initiated when opportunities for improvement are identified. The main drivers often involve business fit, value and agility, cost savings, reduced complexity and risk aversion. Where legacy infrastructure becomes too costly and complex to maintain, or puts the company’s security at risk, these are common reasons for businesses to update.

Once the opportunity for improvement has been identified, businesses can then evaluate modernisation options. According to Gartner, there are seven options that have been ranked by ease of implementation:

  1. Encapsulate – Making applications available as services via an API.
  2. Rehost – Redeployment of the application component to other physical, virtual or cloud infrastructure without further modification.
  3. Replatform – Migration to a new runtime platform with minimal changes to the code (not the code structure, features or functions).
  4. Refactor – Restructure and optimisation of the existing code, removing code debt and improving unbeneficial attributes.
  5. Rearchitect – Altering the code to shift it to a new application architecture.
  6. Rebuild – Completely redesigning the application component while preserving its specifications.
  7. Replace – Entirely removing the former application component and replacing it while considering new needs and requirements.

An easier implementation poses less risk and impact on business processes, while harder implementations pose more risk and impact.

Choosing the best fit modernisation strategy will depend on factors such as the organisation’s existing technology, architecture, technical capabilities and risk appetite.

At its core, modernisation means either rearchitecting, rebuilding or replacing. To successfully complete any of these, businesses need the right underlying IT model to ensure business operations continue with minimal disruption.

HPE Greenlake

Regardless of which strategy you choose, HPE Greenlake is a consumption-based IT model which can support your transformation. By providing a true hybrid cloud experience, it enables IT teams to manage their on-premise and cloud-based systems and data from one intuitive portal.

HPE GreenLake even allows the organisation to choose specific software version levels in the environment and when (or if) they are updated. This is crucial for organisations with infrastructure that may be several firmware versions behind.

HPE GreenLake brings the modern cloud experience to legacy apps, data and workloads in your locations with self-serve, pay-per-use, scalability while being managed as a service by HPE and its partners.

A digital transformation accelerator, HPE GreenLake is the one platform that brings the cloud experience to apps and data where they live. It transforms traditional, non-cloud native apps with an open, container-first approach and enables businesses to create their own AI/ML competency in-house.


Tech refresh, upgrades, transformational projects or legacy system modernisation are all opportunities to have a conversation about moving to the on-premises cloud experience of HPE GreenLake. For current HPE compute users, bringing HPE legacy server estates under HPE GreenLake control is one way to get started.

Whether you are a current HPE user or not, as your IT partner, we can help you identify the best modernisation approach for your business needs and implement the right HPE solutions for your business goals.
