In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, survival hinges on adaptability, scalability, and operational efficiency. Achieving these goals means infusing the right technologies into the business to streamline operations.
Recent times have highlighted the critical role of agile IT infrastructure when it comes to responding to dynamic workloads and shifting business requirements. This shift underscores the irrelevance of traditional, cumbersome legacy IT management methods.
Simultaneously, organisations face the daunting task of managing diverse data types, securing sensitive information, and extracting maximum value from their data, which exists in various forms, originates from multiple sources, and spans from the edge to the cloud.
Traditionally, businesses faced a binary choice regarding data management and workload deployment: maintaining costly on-premise infrastructure with associated overheads or transitioning to the cloud, potentially relinquishing control over operations and data security. This dilemma prompted organisations to make crucial decisions regarding the status quo or full-scale cloud migration, each laden with its own advantages, disadvantages, and trade-offs.
However, a third, transformative option has recently emerged: a consumption-based model that combines the benefits of on-premises infrastructure with the cloud's flexibility.
The world has become a hybrid one, yet hybrid Cloud users have to solve many challenges. This is where Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) GreenLake comes in – the tech giant’s broad portfolio of cloud offerings that help companies simplify how they build, manage, and accelerate the delivery of technology services to their businesses.
The major difference that HPE GreenLake boasts, is that services are delivered where the business’s apps and data live, be it at the edge of the data centre or even in a colocation facility and connected to public clouds.
HPE GreenLake is the cloud that comes to the customer completing their hybrid cloud strategy. This gives customers the flexibility to consume and manage the resources they need without moving their data.
Modular building blocks
In addition, the HPE GreenLake portfolio offers flexible solutions that are built on modular building blocks, as well as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings such as data protection, private cloud as well as storage.
In this way, HPE GreenLake delivers a consistent pod experience and operating model that is powered by a secure edge-to-cloud platform. Users benefit from AI-driven operations automation and observability across multi-vendor IT and a wide range of cloud environments.
Best of all, the platform is all underpinned by top experts around the world, best practices, enterprise architectures, and the broadest ecosystem of partners in the HPE GreenLake marketplace.
A host of revolutionary benefits
In essence, HPE GreenLake offers an as-a-service solution that delivers genuine cloud-like flexibility to data centres, satellite offices, and remote locations. Through Tarsus Distribution, HPE provides a fully configured system, complete with all necessary hardware and software, ensuring rapid deployment and minimal setup hassles.
There are other benefits too. Businesses gain the ability to effortlessly deploy resources, monitor costs, and forecast capacity through the intuitive HPE GreenLake Central platform.
Moreover, with HPE GreenLake, scalability is seamless, reducing cost concerns and ensuring resources are available precisely when needed. HPE GreenLake also takes care of IT operations, freeing up valuable resources through fully managed cloud services.
Pay for what you use
What truly sets HPE GreenLake apart is its consumption-based pricing model. Organisations can sidestep hefty upfront costs and over-provisioning expenses by paying only for the resources they actively use.
Instead of fixed amounts, customers pay a monthly subscription fee based on actual metered usage, ensuring they only pay for what they genuinely use. HPE continuously monitors usage across a variety of metrics, ensuring customers maximise benefits with minimal commitment.
