HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud delivers cloud-native operations, compliance, financial control, and more for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Azure Stack
Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud, a new consumption experience designed to help customers manage and optimize their on- and off-premises clouds. HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud is an automated cloud operating model, leveraging HPE’s leading intellectual property and standardized with HPE best practices to help customers consume the exact cloud resources they need, wherever their workloads live – while driving improved performance, cost, security and compliance. By eliminating the need for staff to manage the hybrid environment day-to-day, the new solution helps diminish human error and enables staff to focus on innovation.
Hybrid IT is the reality for most enterprises as it allows them to blend a mix of applications, services and platforms, all tailored to their needs. However, many enterprises struggle with the complexity of operating different private, public and hybrid clouds and having the right skills to oversee and manage their cloud implementation, which can lead to unknown, unrestrained cost and risk. According to Gartner by 2020, organizations that lack cost optimization processes will average 40% overspend in public cloud. In addition, many customers lack automation and simple tools to unleash the agility of the cloud, and continuous monitoring of controls and compliance frameworks to manage risk.
HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud helps solve the problem of complex management. It sets up processes to manage cloud resources in a customer’s environment of choice; establishes specific cost, security and compliance controls; and then manages those resources on behalf of the customer. Unlike a traditional managed service, GreenLake Hybrid Cloud offers an automated, cloud-native model that is designed to eliminate the need for organizations to hire or train new staff to oversee and manage cloud implementations.
“Enterprises need a fast, simple way to optimize their public and on-premises clouds to enable applications and data under a common operating model,” said Rajesh Dhar, Senior Director, Pointnext, HPE India. “HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud is a breakthrough solution that removes the complexity of operating multiple clouds and enables customers to maintain control, reduce costs and accelerate time to value.”
HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud is built on an automated toolset featuring HPE OneSphere and HPE’s software-defined technology to support and operate hybrid cloud workloads. Microsoft Azure Stack is delivered using the HPE GreenLake flexible consumption model that brings the pay-per-use approach to on-premises environments using the HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack.
