Eight Reasons HPE GreenLake Is Growing Faster Than Public Cloud

Steven Burke

Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Antonio Neri says that with as-a-service bookings up 136 percent in the most recent quarter, the HPE GreenLake on premise cloud service is growing faster than public cloud. Here’s eight reasons why GreenLake is growing faster than public cloud.

HPE’s Transformation Into An “Information Cloud” Leader

HPE is aiming to put even more distance between itself and hybrid cloud competitors with a new unified edge to cloud experience that transforms HPE into a full fledged information cloud company through, in fact, will serve as the new seamless front end for the hybrid edge to cloud experience integrating on premise clouds with AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

Even with all of the sales growth, Neri has told partners that the best is yet to come with “amazing breakthrough” innovation that will be unveiled on March 22 and later this year at HPE Discover

“Whether you provide connectivity through WiFi, LAN or WAN, or whether you sell compute and storage, a private cloud stack or new storage platforms with data services, they are all managed and delivered through HPE GreenLake,” said Neri. “That to me is where the future is. I think of GreenLake as synonymous to HPE. If you ask me: three years from now what product are we going to sell? The reality is we are going to sell one product: it is called HPE GreenLake. Whatever the customer needs is delivered through GreenLake.”

Even capital expenditure hardware purchases like a sale of 10,000 servers will be delivered through GreenLake, said Neri, because “the software to manage those servers” is built into the core of the GreenLake platform through a subscription model.

The stepped up pace of GreenLake innovation comes after Neri put in place last August a new GreenLake cloud services development model, making the acceleration of HPE’s as-a-service transformation his number one priority.

“This is all about going further and faster on the transformation to become that edge to cloud company, “ said Neri, who is working closely with his executive team and a transformation office to accelerate GreenLake.

“My commitment to the channel has always been to put you in a winning position when it comes to innovation,” said Neri.
