New Partner Services Opportunities: HPE GreenLake For Private Cloud Enterprise
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Wednesday introduced a wide range of new capabilities to its HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise, the company’s platform for providing enterprises a private cloud with a public cloud experience for those applications that either businesses prefer not run in a public cloud or which cannot be migrated to a public cloud.
Top of the list of new capabilities is AWS Kubernetes integration with HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise which opens the door for “tremendous” new services opportunities for partners, said Bryan Thompson, vice president of Product Management for GreenLake Cloud Services Solutions.
“As an MSP or [a system integrator] you can take this and build augmenting or complimentary services either surrounding or on top of [HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise],” Thompson told CRN.
In fact, Thompson said, the new additions provide additional momentum behind the “Powered By GreenLake” model that is taking hold in the HPE channel, giving channel partners the ability to more easily provide managed services in the data plane and deliver full managed outcomes by leveraging public cloud automation tooling in a private cloud single tenant environment.
“There is a tremendous partner opportunity with this, providing the foundational substrate to deliver any number of services on top of or complimenting [HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise],” he said.
Along with the new deployment options for Kubernetes with Amazon EKS Anywhere, HPE also introduced six new optimized instances for general compute, memory, and storage; improved usage and cost analytics of applications for hyperscale public clouds, and a new HPE Ezmeral Kubernetes early access program.
