SVP, GM, HPE GreenLake

Hewlett Packard Enterprise

A partner-savvy, cloud services superstar with a Midas touch, White, a cloud computing veteran and former 20-year Microsoft executive who was instrumental in driving dramatic Azure sales growth, is working the same magic at HPE.

White is disrupting cloud behemoths Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google by delivering a GreenLake on-premises cloud experience that is looking more and more like the public cloud experience.

In just nine months on the job, White has already made big advances, bringing a simpler, point-and-click cloud consumption experience to HPE GreenLake.

At the HPE Discover Virtual Experience event in June, White led the cloud services charge, rolling out 17 new standardized offerings for small, midsize and large businesses.

The building block breakthrough opens the door for partners to reduce the sales cycle from what previously took six months to even a year down to just 14 days or less from price quote to delivery on many deals.

On top of that, HPE is bringing the full GreenLake Cloud experience to, where customers can try the various packages—from disaster recovery/backup to private cloud and container as a service—and then buy from an HPE partner.

White, who was handpicked by HPE President and CEO Antonio Neri to lead the company’s new GreenLake Cloud Services Business Group, got a big thumbs up from Neri after the new GreenLake standardized offers were rolled out.

“Thank you to @KeithWhite_HPE for seeing us through to the next era of the cloud market and to help customers harness the full power of their applications, data and workloads as a service,” tweeted Neri. Thank you indeed.
