Hewlett Packard Enterprise Launches 'Made in India' Servers

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced the deployment of its 'Made in India' servers to meet the surging demand of customers within the country. This move comes as a part of HPE's ambitious 'Make in India' plan, which aims to manufacture high-volume servers worth approximately $1 billion in the initial five years of production.

The initiative received a boost from the government and the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), particularly through the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) program. Som Satsangi, Senior Vice President and Managing Director at HPE India, expressed gratitude towards the government's vision, stating that the PLI program played a crucial role in encouraging OEMs like HPE to establish manufacturing bases in India.

In collaboration with HPE, local manufacturer VVDN Technologies swiftly set up a cutting-edge manufacturing facility in Manesar, Haryana, which is now fully operational. Puneet Agarwal, CEO of VVDN Technologies, highlighted the joint effort to establish advanced manufacturing capabilities, emphasizing their commitment to local expertise and the vision of an Atmanirbhar Bharat.

HPE's decision to manufacture servers locally aligns with its broader strategy of enhancing supply chain diversification and resilience. The company is actively exploring opportunities to further localize production by leveraging VVDN's backward integration capability and expanding its range of products manufactured in India.

With this significant step, HPE not only aims to cater to the growing demands of the Indian market but also contributes to the country's vision of self-reliance and technological advancement. The 'Made in India' servers signify a milestone in HPE's commitment to fostering innovation and strengthening its presence in the region's rapidly evolving IT landscape.
