High Growth Ahead For GreenLake And HPC
HPE expects the total addressable on-premises cloud services market to grow to $22 billion by 2023, up from $6 billion today, a 58 percent compound annual growth rate, said White.
Nearly 50 percent of the GreenLake sales growth is coming from areas like HPC, analytics, engineering applications and virtual desktop infrastructure, said White.
At the same time, HPE sees big growth ahead in the HPC market, where sales in the most recent quarter were up 25 percent.
HPE, which bought supercomputing power Cray in 2019, said it now has a market-leading 37 percent market share in the supercomputing market.
“We’re approaching this whole HPC solution area fundamentally differently than traditional cloud providers,” said Ungaro. “We start with our leadership HPC position in the market and then bring that capability to a cloud infrastructure, rather than starting with a cloud infrastructure and trying to apply that to HPC.”
HPE’s aim is to provide customers of all sizes access to unique HPE supercomputing technologies like HPE Slingshot high-speed interconnect; HPE HPC Performance Cluster Manager; and Cray ClusterStor parallel performance storage management system, said Ungaro.
Through the Cray acquisition, HPE also offers a complete Cray programming software suite for high-performance computing, said Ungaro.
HPE, in fact, plans to expand the HPE GreenLake cloud service for HPC to Cray technologies in the future.
“We’re excited about broadening the scope of what solutions our partners can deliver to customers, and we are excited to help them,” said White.
