Aspara stack is an extension of Alibaba Cloud's public cloud architecture. It is a cloud services platform that is intended to be compatible with on-premise data centers and should provide support for data sovereignty and compliance requirements. Alibaba Cloud is planning to include more than 60 of its services, including artificial intelligence, elastic GPU computing, and business intelligence, in this deal.

HPE is aiming to provide deployments ranging in size from 20 to 10,000 servers. In addition to certifying its servers, HPE is also planning on certifying other platform elements like their FlexFabric networking switches.

HPE is limiting their release to the Asia Pacific region, excluding China. They are targeting the end of this year, 2018.
