Bangalore: Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has updated its HPE GreenLake cloud services portfolio.
It introduced HPE GreenLake cloud services portfolio for virtual machines (VMs), containers and bare metal management with scalable, modular entry points. These are customised for mid-market businesses having 100 VMs to 600 VMs.
For bare metal, the customers can discover, provision, manage compute and storage resources in HPE GreenLake Central. So they can run workloads directly on the server or use VMs or containers in the mix that fits their business.
This enables customers with better control, agility and a non-expansive approach to building platforms that meet their performance, cost and configuration needs.
For virtual machines (VMs), the customers can choose from various deployments, as well as compute and storage instance types sized for 100 VMs.
These are offered in standardised blocks with 4, 8, 12, and 16 compute nodes. The company said it has introduced the new VMs cloud service as the option to add backup as a service.
For containers, HPE offers solutions based on small, medium, large and extra-large capacity sizes for the HPE Ezmeral Container platform.
With these new updates, HPE is banking on its hybrid cloud approach to push its cloud services in the markets. It is offering a mix of cloud’s agility and simplicity along with governance and control of an on-prem environment. This approach helped HPE GreenLake Cloud Services business grow to the tune of $4.5 billion in total contract value.
In Q1 2021 HPE grew its Annualized Revenue Run Rate (ARR) by 27% year-over-year. HPE’s partner ecosystem has been the force behind the growth and success of the Greenlake cloud services business.
In this growth, HPE’s partner ecosystem has been playing a significant role in closing cloud services contracts. Partner-led orders for HPE GreenLake growing 116% in Q1 2021.
