HPE GreenLake: Bringing the cloud experience to apps and data
By Yatheif Mohammed, HPE Technical Account Manager at SCC
Many businesses are looking at the best way to manage their workloads, with much talk about public cloud vs on premises IT. However, it’s not always the case of choosing one over the other, but rather, a hybrid approach. This is where GreenLake comes in.
Now more than ever, you need to be able to adapt quickly to change. HPE GreenLake brings the cloud experience to apps and data everywhere, enabling you to adopt transformative technology faster and simplify your operations.
HPE GreenLake delivers public cloud services and infrastructure as-a-service for your workloads – on-premises, fully managed in a pay-per-use model at the edge, in colocations and in your data centre.
The rise of the hybrid workplace
COVID-19 has accelerated changes in how we work. Remote environments have become the norm and the ability to support employee productivity is no longer in question. But even before the pandemic hit, businesses were no longer looking at the workplace as a static, physical place that enclosed work activities. For at least the past decade, they have increasingly visualised it as a boundary-less environment that leverages modern compute and connectivity to engage, empower and embolden individuals to do more than they could achieve by themselves.
Companies are moving towards a hybrid workplace – one that’s defined not so much by location as by flexibility across a range of tasks, needs and preferences, wherever an employee happens to be. Whilst the spotlight has been on remote capabilities, the role of the physical workplace is rapidly evolving, and will require all the flexibility that a hybrid approach delivers.
Getting the cloud experience
The cloud experience has shaped what business leaders expect of IT. HPE GreenLake delivers as-a-service cloud economics on-premises, as a pay-per-use model with no capital needed up front, and no overprovisioning of infrastructure.
For cloud-native and non-cloud native apps alike, HPE GreenLake delivers agility to apps and data where they live – edges, colocations, or data centres, giving your developers the resources to work faster and smarter. It enables a pay-per-use payment model for on-premises infrastructure based on actual usage; advanced capacity management based on usage trends cuts over provisioning and enables capacity growth ahead of demand.
HPE GreenLake Central gives you a unified view of all your IT operations and lets you provision, monitor and manage infrastructure with cloud-native controls.
