Swisslog, a leading provider of data-driven solutions in intralogistics across industries like retail, food and beverage, manufacturing, and consumer goods, has selected HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise.
This strategic move aims to revolutionize their IT managed services, providing swift deployment of services and enhancing customer experiences within intralogistics automation.
Headquartered in Dortmund, Germany, Swisslog’s adoption of the HPE GreenLake platform signifies a pivotal shift towards cloud-driven simplicity and automation without compromising data privacy and sovereignty concerns.
Dominik Tünnerhoff, the head of IT systems and support at Swisslog GmbH, emphasized the critical need for a cutting-edge platform. “We sought a solution that elevates our IT managed services with cloud-level efficiency and automation. However, our commitment to data privacy and sovereignty led us away from public cloud options,” he stated.
HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise promises Swisslog an automated, adaptable, and entirely managed cloud experience. This platform offers diverse options for automated management, granting seamless access to private cloud resources, thus eradicating laborious manual processes. For instance, Swisslog’s IT systems and support team will now swiftly provision virtual-machine-based applications for specific customer projects within minutes, ensuring agile operations.
Importantly, this private cloud solution will be wholly managed by HPE within Swisslog’s Dortmund data center. Its pay-per-use pricing model aligns operational expenses with evolving business needs, eliminating the need for significant upfront capital expenditure. This subscription model, based on metered usage of virtual CPU, virtual RAM, and storage, will allow Swisslog to precisely track and allocate private cloud costs per customer project.
Bryan Thompson, vice president of HPE GreenLake product management, highlighted the significance of this collaboration: “HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise eliminates complexities by bringing a public cloud experience to Swisslog’s corporate data center.”
This strategic partnership between Swisslog GmbH and HPE through the adoption of HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise sets a new benchmark in intralogistics automation. It not only ensures heightened efficiency in IT managed services but also underscores a commitment to data privacy while embracing cloud innovation for unparalleled customer service.
