General Availability of HPE GreenLake For SAP, HPC, ML Ops, and VDI
The general availability of HPE GreenLake for SAP, HPC (high performance computing) ML (Machine Learning) Ops and VDI is a sign of the tremendous progress HPE has made in bringing workload optimized on-premise cloud services to the market, said White.
“We are so excited about what we get to deliver to our customers,” said White. “This is a huge Discover for us! Two years ago Antonio made his promise (to deliver the complete HPE portfolio as a service by 2022). Last year, we started to introduce a couple of cloud services. We talked about virtual machines and ML Ops and that we would be delivering those. But this year we have delivered (cloud services) and we are continuing to innovate and keep our foot on the gas with respect to that acceleration.”
The HPE GreenLake applications as a service blitz, said White, shows that HPE has made on-premise cloud services a force to be reckoned with in the intensely competitive cloud market. Cloud services on-prem was never discussed by customers until HPE made it a “reality” with GreenLake, said White.
“Now we have got these sets of workloads and industry solutions to really help customers move their digital transformation and their modernization efforts forward,” said White. “It is really exciting!”
White said key to HPE’s GreenLake success is a focus on the partner ecosystem. “It is really about the ecosystem,” he said. “This isn’t about one company delivering capabilities. This is about the power of that ecosystem. You have ISVs. You have Managed Service Providers. You have Colos. The Colos become very critical here. You have the systems integrators that are building these solutions for our customers. You have to embrace the ecosystem.”
Ultimately that ability to build a broad ecosystem is key to GreenLake success, said White. “It is we - not a me,” he said. “It is a cosell through and with the ecosystem. That is exciting because that is where it is fun because now you are getting all these smart brains and all these like superpowers from each of the components that are getting together and that is your Justice League. That is exciting to see!”
