Global enterprises across all industries are using HPE Ezmeral to capitalise on data, unlock new technologies, and transform how they do business.

HPE Ezmeral is a Container Platform that delivers a high-performance, on-premises container solution in a pay-per-use model. It enables edge-to cloud digital transformation by modernising data-centric apps and unlocking insights from data. In this article, we’ll look at how two global enterprises (a Tier 1 bank and Mercedes-Benz AG) have used this platform to achieve real business benefits.

Tier-1 Bank

A Tier-1 bank needed to build a bridge to multi-cloud for analytics. They had an application that provided analytics and insights to users, but the app had several technology-related bottlenecks that were limiting its usefulness. These included:

  • 9-18 month provisioning time
  • 30% CPU utilisation
  • Data duplication
  • High data erasure rates due to a lack of storage

HPE Ezmeral provided the following solutions:

  • Fully automated provisioning
  • Full visibility, trackability, and auditability into big data
  • GDPR compliance with elimination of redundant copies
  • Architecture that scales independent of compute and storage

The solution built a bridge between the data centre and public cloud requiring only two lines of code to spin up environments in AWS. This significantly improved infrastructure utilisation and scaling with self‑service and automated provisioning. This resulted in more than £6 million in infrastructure savings over three years and 1,200x faster time to value.

Mercedes-Benz AG

Mercedes-Benz AG was seeking to accelerate development of autonomous driving functions. They needed a data platform that could:

  • Collect massive amounts of data
  • Make this data available anywhere
  • Train algorithms that enable cars to make decisions in real-time
  • Use data to identify anomalies and refine autonomous driving systems
  • Minimise replication and avoid data duplication to optimise hardware resources

HPE Ezmeral provided the following solutions:

  • Rapid access and high availability to data
  • Data available anywhere in the world
  • Deep learning techniques to train algorithms
  • Scalable storage
  • Enable developers to run containerised applications
  • Efficiently manage and analyse millions of miles of vehicle test data

This enabled Mercedes-Benz AG to build an autonomous driving platform that collects, analyses, monitors and delivers massive data and insights. This helped to accelerate the development of their autonomous driving project. Mercedes-Benz AG were able to collect 5-20 TB of data per day and log over 10 million miles of driving data in a single training set.

Unlocking the power of HPE Ezmeral

There are four key parts of the platform are:
