Azure Stack HCI now running on HPE Edgeline EL8000

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Microsoft and HPE have teamed up to validate the HPE Edgeline EL8000 Converged Edge system for Microsoft's Azure Stack HCI program. Designed specifically for space-constrained environments, the HPE Edgeline EL8000 Converged Edge system has a unique 17-inch depth form factor that fits into limited infrastructures too small for other x86 systems. The chassis has an 8.7-inch width which brings additional flexibility for deploying at the deep edge, whether it is in a telco environment, a mobile vehicle, or a manufacturing floor. This NEBs-compliant system delivers secure scalability.
