The ‘Future Of Storage:’ HPE Unleashes GreenLake File, Block Storage With Alletra Storage MP
HPE has launched what it’s calling “future of storage” with Alletra Storage MP, a new file storage offering and an expanded block storage service for its HPE GreenLake pay-per-use platform.
HPE GreenLake: A “Partner-Led And Partner-First Platform’
HPE’s Osborne stressed that the new HPE GreenLake storage offerings are backed up by HPE’s “partner-led and partner-first” commitment.
In fact, the new Alletra Storage MP platform is designed not only for customers, but for partners as well, said Osborne.
To that point, the new Alletra Storage MP platform opens the door for partners to build their own services on the platform, said Osborne.
“Many of our partners not only transact and help customers purchase and acquire these solutions and install them they also help manage them,” he said. “They also do life-cycling and data services on their own. So for us this is a partner-first platform.”
The HPE GreenLake storage console is similar to the HPE Aruba Central networking console, which supports more than 120,000 customers.
HPE partners can manage and support customers through the GreenLake storage console with the ability to transact and size their customers’ storage platforms.
“We are 100 percent in with our distribution partners and our reseller partners,” said Osborne. “With the GreenLake platform we imagine that almost the entirety of our business will be partner-led in this segment.”
