HPE is accelerating its GreenLake edge to cloud everything as a service sales offensive with a slew of announcements – including a breakthrough GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise service. Here are the five biggest announcements from HPE Discover 2022.
A ‘Seamless’ Edge To Cloud Experience- ‘No Different’ Than Public Cloud
HPE this week at its HPE Discover conference in Las Vegas is adding more robust “seamless” edge to cloud capabilities with the addition of 12 new cloud services to its GreenLake edge to cloud service platform.
“The experience that you see from GreenLake is no different from what an end user gets when they consume from public cloud,” said Vishal Lall, senior vice president and general manager of HPE GreenLake Cloud Services solutions in a press briefing on the GreenLake announcements at Discover. “That has kind of been the North Star- the user experience is the key. Users and enterprises – whether it is the CIO or developers or lines of business- can use the stack to build and run applications and then consume it as a service.”
HPE GreenLake now has 70 plus services and 80 Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) – including SAP, Nutanix and Veeam- in its cloud marketplace. The HPE cloud services run the gamut from network as a service with Aruba to block storage as a service and artificial intelligence and machine learning.
At Discover, HPE unveiled HPE GreenLake for Data Fabric, a managed service that now includes a single data store for hybrid cloud.The data fabric lets customers “manage the data they have across those deployment models and run unified analytics” so they can maximize the value of their data, said Lall.
HPE’s Ezmeral GreenLake Data Fabric ensures that customers can manage data from the edge to the cloud across public clouds like AWS to on premise data centers or at the edge,said Lall.
At Discover, HPE also continued its ecosystem build out with a blockbuster partnership with open source titan Red Hat, a deeper integration with SUSE Linux that opens up edge computing opportunities for partners and an HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery offering for Amazon Web Services.“We’re adding more services and capabilities, adding more partners, making that experience richer for our customers,” said Lall.
HPE now has thousands of software engineers working on the edge to cloud platform, said Lall. “We’re super excited about the momentum we are experiencing in the market,” he said.
