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.’

What is your view of AWS Outposts and the difference between how AWS and HPE view hybrid cloud?

First, it is a validation that the world is hybrid. It took them a few years to understand it. Second, they understand that the cloud has to move closer to where the action is. 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.

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. 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.

That is why architecting the right hybrid strategies is fundamentally about the apps and the data. Not all workloads are created equal. When you talk about HPC [high-performance computing] you are talking about very data-intensive workloads. Therefore, the compute and the data have to be co-located. You can’t have the app running on one side and the data on the other side. That is why we have made a bet to become the backbone for the next generation of high-performance computing. With the explosion of data-intensive workloads like AI, machine learning, big data analytics and simulation modeling, we believe we are uniquely positioned to become that backbone. That is why the acquisition of Cray, which we just completed two weeks ago, is foundational. It's not because of the HPC supercomputing but because of the foundational technologies needed both from a software and then the silicon side.
