Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched a series of initiatives to help customers and support business continuity in the wake of COVID-19.

HPE is releasing a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution, and said it will offer flexible financing terms and new pre-configured solutions to increase flexibility and accelerate delivery.

HPE Financial Services is set to offer financial and asset lifecycle options including short-term rentals and 90-day payment deferrals on VDI solutions.

The company revealed that HPE VDI solutions are also available as-a-Service through HPE Greenlake to support customers who require financial flexibility in their remote workforce roll out.

“The urgent global response to COVID-19 has pressured our customers to rapidly implement and expand secure, remote work options for their organisations,” said Gerald Kleyn, vice president and general manager of Moonshot, Edge and IoT Systems at HPE.

“I’m proud that our team at HPE is delivering a breadth of solutions, services and expertise to help our customers support their employees and operations during this critical time.

“Our infrastructure solutions, which provide industry-leading remote management, security, and automation capabilities, help businesses quickly deliver virtual workspaces to their remote staff.”

HPE is also offering pre-configured VDI solutions to support small, medium and enterprise customers. 

Built on either HPE ProLiant or HPE Synergy servers, these solutions can start as small as 80 users and scale to over 2,000 remote workers and are designed for Citrix and VMware environments, according to the company.

The company also unveiled its new VDI solution to support power users working remotely. HPE Moonshot now ships with the new HPE ProLiant m750 server blade and delivers more than a 70% performance advantage and consumes 25% less power than the previous generation.

HPE’s fleet of virtual desktop infrastructure and digital workspace solutions are built to deliver access to applications and data and are designed to support a wide range of user requirements across healthcare, government, financial services, education, manufacturing and retail.
