Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) made several news announcements and the latest client wins for the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform.
HPE GreenLake, HPE’s market-leading hybrid cloud platform, provides one view of all services edge to cloud; convergence with Aruba Central adds 120,000 Aruba networking customers to the platform.
HPE GreenLake adds 12 new cloud services including network as a service, data services, high performance computing functions, and compute operations management.
HPE GreenLake is available in the online marketplaces of ALSO Group, Arrow Electronics, Ingram Micro Inc., and TD Synnex to reach over 100,000 partners.
Antonio Neri, president and CEO of HPE, said: “In the hybrid cloud market, HPE GreenLake is unique in its simplicity, unification, depth of cloud services, and partner network. Today, we are furthering our differentiation, setting HPE GreenLake even further apart as the ideal platform for customers to drive data-first modernization.”
HPE GreenLake supports multi-cloud experiences everywhere – including clouds that live on-premises, at the edge, in a colocation facility, and in a public cloud.
In Q1 2022, HPE reported Annual Recurring Revenue of $798 million, and increased as-a-service orders 136 percent year-over-year.
HPE GreenLake for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI is a cloud service that allows users to run Windows and Linux virtual machines in a hybrid cloud environment, on-premises and at the edge, and leverages Microsoft Azure tools and services with a preconfigured, pay-per-use service from HPE GreenLake.
Keith White, General Manager, HPE GreenLake Cloud Services, said: “HPE GreenLake and Microsoft Azure offer enterprises a hybrid solution that provides the cloud experience wherever the customer needs it, while reducing costs and accommodating business growth so customers can fuel digital transformation.”
Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, a software-defined, unified system, combines all of the disparate and siloed elements of a traditional datacenter, decreasing datacenter complexity. The integrated solution is built on HPE GreenLake Lighthouse cloud-native infrastructure that incorporates compute, storage, and networking, to run Azure services on-premises.
Azure Stack HCI, delivered as a service from HPE GreenLake, enables businesses to transform their on-premises workloads by providing customers with a cloud experience and operating model for applications and workloads close to where the data lives, helping customers reduce costs, increase scalability and simplify management.
“This validated offering, delivered through HPE GreenLake, is important for our customers who require a cloud-like experience on-premises, and who want to be able to act on their data — edge to cloud,” said Roanne Sones, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Azure Edge + Platform.
In April 2022, with the onboarding of Aruba customers, HPE will add over 120,000 customers to the HPE GreenLake platform.
HPE GreenLake for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI as an integrated system will be available globally in May 2022.
