HPE GreenLake

Pay-as-you-go consumption-based IT solutions that deliver desired outcomes with hardware, software and expertise on-premises or in the cloud.

By 2020, consumption-based procurement in data centres will have eclipsed traditional procurement through improved ‘as a service’ models, accounting for as much as 40% of enterprises’ IT infrastructure spending.

Delivering the flexibility of public cloud, but on-premises and under your control, HPE GreenLake is designed to give you exactly what you need and when you need it.

HPE GreenLake – outcome-based IT consumption

HPE GreenLake is a new consumption-based IT model that marks a paradigm shift in the way we operate IT. It focuses on outcome-based consumption, while radically simplifying IT and freeing up resources. Best of all, it really does deliver the best of both public cloud and onpremises IT – so you don’t have to compromise.

What is it?

solutions that deliver IT outcomes with

Payment is simple and based on a single pay-per-usage metric that is relevant to the particular solution and your business.

Flexible support that extends your IT team

With HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity, you get one contract and one monthly invoice based on consumption and usage with no upfront payment. Our enterprise-grade support works as part of your IT support team. You get a proactive support experience that includes:

  • Enhanced call handling to maintain and support your choice of on-premises servers, storage, and networking.
  • A team who proactively helps to manage your business and address increases and decreases in capacity on your terms.
  • A personalized support experience tailored to meet your specific needs, allowing you to focus resources on business innovation and opportunities.

Experience the best of both worlds

Outcome-based IT consumption delivers a range of benefits that you can’t get from solutions solely built from scratch or bought from the public cloud. Delivering the best of both worlds, HPE GreenLake enables:

  • Faster time to value with solutions that are ready quickly and evolve ahead of your needs
  • Better economics with a flexible, pay-per-use model that offers simplicity and financial clarity
  • On-premises for proper control over compliance, performance, and security
  • Simplified IT that’s operated for you to free up resources and add business value

Benefits beyond traditional models

Customers that embrace this new offering can better accelerate time to value, align IT economics with business priorities, simplify IT operations, and gain better control. To fully understand the advantages of this new model, it’s helpful to look at how it differs from others.

What is it:

A flexible consumption-based model that speeds your time to market and grows organically as your needs change – helping you to avoid overprovisioning.
A pay-as-you-go solution that establishes a simple, outcome-oriented metric.
Operated for you, but you remain in control. You experience no disruption, no
staff transfer.
A service that takes the burden off IT operations with a simple approach.
A solution that delivers the advantages of public cloud services – simplicity, scalability, pay per use – but with the security and control of on-premises IT. It also delivers more robust services that are specific to your needs.

What is it not:

A fixed IT purchase that comes with a significant capital outlay and long procurement, design and build cycles.
A fixed lease with predetermined payment plans.
An outsourced service that requires you to make an all-or-nothing decision and
relinquish control.
An appliance-like solution that is still labour intensive for IT.
A public cloud that doesn’t deliver the control and security of on-premises IT,
where services are fixed or generic, and where applications must be refactored
on a cloud-native architecture.
