HPE Delivers the Cloud Experience Everywhere with Next-Generation as-a-Service Platform
MUNICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2019--
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced the next major milestone in its strategy to deliver its entire edge-to-cloud portfolio as-a-Service, with the launch of HPE GreenLake Central, an advanced software platform that provides customers with a consistent cloud experience for all their applications and data, through an operational console that runs, manages and optimizes their entire hybrid IT estate. HPE unveiled HPE GreenLake Central today in a keynote address by Antonio Neri, President and CEO, at HPE Discover More Munich.
Building on the tremendous momentum of HPE GreenLake, HPE’s market-leading IT as-a-Service offering, HPE GreenLake Central gives customers a simple, unified, digital experience across public and private clouds, the data center and edge workloads. This platform accelerates business outcomes for customers by lowering costs and risks and providing greater choice and control.
Despite the promise of the cloud to speed delivery of new applications, organizations’ digital transformation efforts have become more complex, costly, and slow-moving. To add to these challenges, the vast majority of today’s applications and data remain in the data center, and are growing exponentially at the edge. As a result, organizations have been dealing with a siloed, inconsistent experience across their hybrid estate, and lack control and visibility into the costs and risks across their enterprise.
HPE GreenLake Central allows customers to break through these challenges by delivering a single, integrated management control plane for their entire hybrid IT estate, and one operational console from which to direct and drive their digital transformation initiatives – all delivered as-a-Service. The platform gives customers the freedom to choose which tools they want to use to build applications, where and how to place their workloads and data, and only pay for what they consume.
HPE GreenLake Central provides powerful capabilities and benefits that allow each role in an organization to achieve better business outcomes:
“HPE GreenLake Central is a transformative platform that changes the game in hybrid IT,” said Antonio Neri, President and CEO, HPE. “With this offering, every user in a company gains access to a unique console from which to run their organization and achieve powerful business outcomes. Now the CIO can operate as a strategic service broker, and everyone benefits from a consistent cloud experience, resulting in lower costs and risks, and greater choice, control, simplicity, and speed.”
Today’s announcement builds on the momentum for HPE GreenLake, and HPE’s commitment to offer its entire portfolio as-a-Service by 2022. HPE pioneered the modern IT on premises as-a-Service model, and while traditional IT vendors try to emulate the offering, HPE GreenLake’s unique metering, cost control, software IP, and backing from HPE Financial Services provide a differentiated solution that competitors cannot match.
HPE GreenLake is now one of the fastest-growing businesses in HPE, with more than 740 customers worldwide, including 160 new customer logo wins this year. Additionally, HPE has uniquely enabled its world-class partner community to deliver the offering – in 2019 the channel generated over 200% order growth for HPE GreenLake.
HPE GreenLake Central is in trial with customers now, and will be generally available to HPE GreenLake clients by the end of HPE Q1 2020. For more information, please visit www.hpe.com/greenlake.
