Antonio Neri: Outposts Is AWS’ Bid To Lock Data In Public Cloud

‘To me, Outposts is just a way to continue to lure you to move to the [public] cloud because their ultimate objective is to move your data to the [public] cloud,’ says HPE President and CEO Antonio Neri. ‘We have this saying: When you check into the public cloud, it is like checking into the Hotel California. You check in and you never check out. What customers are realizing now is that the cost of egressing that data back is enormous. Enormous.’

Neri On The Record

Hewlett Packard Enterprise President and CEO Antonio Neri told 2019 Best of Breed (BoB) conference attendees that Amazon Web Services’ Outposts product is simply an on-ramp to get customers to move their data to the public cloud.

“To me, Outposts is just a way to continue to lure you to move to the [public] cloud because their ultimate objective is to move your data to the [public] cloud,” said Neri in a question-and-answer session. “We have this saying: When you check into the public cloud, it is like checking into the Hotel California. You check in and you never check out. What customers are realizing now is that the cost of egressing that data back is enormous. Enormous.”

AWS Outposts—the public cloud behemoth’s on-premises hardware offering, which is slated to be released by the end of the year—is a “validation” from AWS of hybrid cloud market momentum, said Neri.

“They understand that the cloud has to move closer to where the action is,” said Neri. “The action is where we live and work. That’s where the majority of the data is created. They understand that the economics associated with that and the need to drive an experience almost in real time requires them to move the cloud closer to where the action is.”

Neri said he sees competitors building proprietary stacks that will eat up IT investment dollars that could be better spent on innovation.

“As I think about our competitors, they want to build a proprietary stack and ultimately help you navigate in that proprietary stack back and forth,” he said. “We want to give you the flexibility of choice to be in an open environment in a multi-cloud world.”
