HPE GreenLake advances hybrid cloud experience with new services

By Shannon Williams
Thu 30 Jun 2022

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has unveiled platform enhancements and new cloud services for HPE GreenLake, the company’s flagship offering that enables organisations to modernise all their applications and data. 

This includes a reimagined modern private cloud that provides a cloud-native experience to power an organisation’s hybrid strategy, regardless of location. 

In addition, HPE unveiled eight new HPE GreenLake cloud services, giving customers more choice, control, and predictability for their enterprise cloud delivery.

“Three years ago, at HPE Discover, HPE committed to delivering our entire portfolio as a service by 2022,” says Antonio Neri, president and CEO, HPE. 

“Today, I am proud to say that not only have we delivered on that commitment, we have become a new company. HPE GreenLake has emerged as the go-to destination for hybrid cloud, and our industry-leading catalog of cloud services enables organisations to drive data-first modernisation for all their workloads, across edge to cloud," he says. 

"The innovations unveiled today further build on our vision to provide the market with an unmatched platform to spur innovation and drive transformation.”

The HPE GreenLake Platform – the Foundation of the HPE GreenLake Experience

HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform provides customers and partners with a unified experience, control and visibility, and fast and easy access to over 70 cloud services. Today, HPE GreenLake has 65,000 customers and over one exabyte of data under management with customers worldwide. These organisations benefit from one control plane from which to automate, orchestrate, and run their hybrid cloud strategy.

HPE continues to innovate and invest in the HPE GreenLake platform. In March 2022, HPE announced a new, unified operational experience that provides a simplified view and access to all cloud services, including capabilities at the edge. This included convergence of the HPE GreenLake platform with Aruba Central, a cloud-native AI-powered network management solution, and HPE GreenLake for Aruba networking, eight new cloud services covering a full span of use cases – including wired, wireless, and SD-Branch.

At HPE Discover 2022, HPE unveiled additional advancements to the HPE GreenLake platform, including enhanced security, a new developer portal and developer tools, and deeper capabilities to manage assets and workloads at scale. 

The HPE GreenLake platform continues to drive strong customer demand.  In Q2 2022, HPE reported Annualised Revenue Run-Rate (ARR) of $829 million and triple digit as-a-service orders growth for the third consecutive quarter.

HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise

The market for private cloud continues to grow, due to multiple concerns and priorities for customers, including application entanglement, control, cost, data gravity, data latency, and predictability. Enterprise customers across industries are embracing modern private clouds as part of their hybrid, multi-cloud, and digital transformation strategy. However, to date, traditional private cloud offerings have failed to deliver on their promise, due to complexity, manual processes, lack of visibility and governance, and narrowly focused solutions that cannot scale to meet the needs of the enterprise.

Addressing this market opportunity, HPE GreenLake has become the ideal solution for organisations seeking to roll out pay-per-use private clouds, from departmental workloads to large, multinational initiatives spanning thousands of applications and workloads.

HPE GreenLake builds on this momentum with HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise, a new offering that reimagines the private cloud experience, by providing an automated, flexible, scalable, and enterprise-grade private cloud. Built for both cloud-native and traditional applications, HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise includes modular infrastructure and software and supports the deployment of bare metal, virtual machines, and container workloads. 

HPE also unveiled multiple cloud services designed to help organisations drive data-first modernisation:
