HPE expands pay-per-use consumption offering to key business workloads

28 Nov 17

Hewlett Packard Enterprise today announced the launch of HPE GreenLake, a suite of pay-per-use solutions available for key customer workloads, with offerings to include big data, backup, open database, SAP HANA, and edge computing.

HPE says the new suite of solutions is designed, delivered and operated by HPE Pointnext with a simple, pay-per-use model.

According to HPE, the move is part of its continued focus on providing customers flexible consumption offerings.

The company is also rebranding and making enhancements to HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity, its infrastructure consumption service.

Raj Thakur, HPE South-Pacific vice president and general manager of Hybrid IT says, “Building on the leadership and success of consuming infrastructure with HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity, we are taking the next step in consumption.

“HPE GreenLake offers an experience that is the best of both worlds – a simple, pay-per-use technology model with the risk management of data that’s under the customer’s direct control.”

The outcome-based IT consumption solutions include:

  • HPE GreenLake Big Data -  offering a Hadoop data lake, pre-integrated and tested on the latest HPE technology and Hortonworks or Cloudera software.    

  • HPE GreenLake Backup -  delivering on-premises backup capacity using Commvault software pre-integrated on HPE technology with HPE metering technology and management services to run it.

  • HPE GreenLake Database with EDB Postgres - delivering an on-premises and open source technology designed to help simplify operations and reduce total cost of ownership for a customer’s entire database platform.

  • HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA - offering an on-premises appliance operated by HPE with the right-sized, SAP-certified hardware, operating system, and services designed to meet workload performance and availability objectives.

  • HPE GreenLake Edge Compute -  offering an end-to-end lifecycle framework to accelerate a customer’s Internet of Things (IoT) journey.                                

As a part of each HPE GreenLake outcome-driven solution, HPE will provide advisory and professional services from HPE Pointnext to help customers define, deploy, and integrate solutions.

The company’s pay-per-use GreenLake Flex Capacity provides the foundation for the new offering,  which facilitates delivery of on-premises infrastructure consumption models to contemporary customers.

Depending on need, level of expertise required, and in-house IT resources, businesses can choose between HPE GreenLake complete solutions or HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity based infrastructure solutions.

As a part of this news, HPE has also announced enhancements to HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity.

These enhancements include New modular, pre-packaged infrastructure choices designed to help customers get started more quickly and stay ahead of demand.

GreenLake Flex will also see expanded technology choices, with high-performance computing (HPC), Microsoft Azure Stack, and HPE SimpliVity.

HPE says the announcements reflect their ongoing growth with consumption-based services through partnership and innovation.
