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.
‘Big’ Opportunity For Partners: HPE GreenLake For Backup And Recovery For AWS
The new HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery offering for Amazon Web Services is yet another example of HPE’s multicloud and customer choice commitment on the GreenLake platform.
The new cloud service extends HPE GreenLake backup and recovery support for virtual machines to support workloads in AWS with a single management console.
The offering provides what HPE calls a unified backup as a service solution for both on premise and cloud workloads.
The AWS offering is a “big opportunity” for partners to extend backup services into the AWS cloud, said Flynn Maloy, vice president of HPE GreenLake cloud services marketing. “This is us building out a unified platform,” he said.
The AWS capability provides a “complete solution” for backup, said Maloy. Customers are looking for a single backup capability that extends from on premise to the public cloud, said Maloy.
“If you’ve got a bunch of stuff in AWS and you want that backed up or a bunch of stuff on prem and you want that backed up either on prem or in the cloud, we can handle all of that hybrid backup,” he said. “We think this is the backup and recovery offer of the future and that is big business.”
The HPE GreenLake edge to cloud platform provides seamless integration to manage the complete hybrid estate from HPE GreenLake to all the three major public clouds: AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.
HPE recently emerged as one of the infrastructure as a service partners underpinning the Google Distributed Cloud Hosted offering.
Furthermore, HPE is now offering HPE GreenLake for Azure Stack HCI- a hyperconverged software defined system that supports the Azure stack.
