HPE GreenLake

Your top workloads, on-premises and on-demand

The way organisations consume technology is changing fast. Many business applications and services have moved to cloud. Yet cloud isn’t the answer for every app – many mission-critical workloads are best handled inhouse.

The challenge is that traditional on-premises environments can tie up capital, are labour intensive, and are regularly overprovisioned.

80%

of IT staff time is spent on undifferentiated heavy lifting. 1


59%

the amount that enterprises overprovision compute resources. 2


50%

of enterprises experience downtime due to capacity planning. 2


So, how can businesses alleviate the cost and operational burden of on-premises infrastructure? The solution? Enter HPE GreenLake, a portfolio of cloud services offered within an elastic, pay-per-use ‘as a Service model delivered to data centres, the edge and multi-clouds.

Bundle all your infrastructure into a pay-per-use model

From compute and storage to containers and HPC – and everything else in between – managing the components of your on-premises infrastructure can be extremely complex.

Consumption-based IT eliminates that complexity: under a single pay-per-use model, you don’t need to juggle various vendor licenses or worry that you’re paying for unnecessary equipment. Instead, while you might have 10 servers on-premises ready to go for your peak demand periods, you only pay for the amount you use right now.

HPE GreenLake is leading the way for EaaS. It meters your usage – whether gigabytes of storage, compute hours or megabytes of network traffic – and you pay only for what you consume. You get the capacity you need in minutes, with no upfront payments, no risk of overprovisioning, and compete control.

Helping SMEs Manage the Unexpected
