The next wave of digital transformation will be fuelled by apps and data everywhere. However, as many as 70% of apps and data remain on-premises in data centres, colocations and edges — and for good business reason.
However, no matter where their apps and data live, businesses need the agility of the cloud experience, the scalability ahead of demand, reduced costs and conserved capital, and simplicity across multi and hybrid IT.
HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform brings this cloud experience to customers, in an integrated solution, in a new optimised offering that provides them more choice and flexibility for their hybrid IT environments.
In fact, HPE GreenLake for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI offers infrastructure, software and management, as well as services and support. It delivers a modern, cloud-based Windows or Linux platform to customers’ apps and data right where they reside, allowing them to gain speed and agility, offloading the burden of operating IT, and paying only for the resources consumed.
Microsoft Azure Stack HCI is a software-defined, unified system that combines all the disparate and siloed elements of a traditional data centre, dramatically reducing data centre complexity. The integrated solution is built on HPE GreenLake Lighthouse cloud-native infrastructure that incorporates compute, storage and networking to run Azure services on-premises.
It is delivered as a service from HPE GreenLake and enables businesses to transform their on-premises workloads by giving customers the cloud experience and operating model they need for applications and workloads close to where the data resides. This helps customers lower costs, enhance scalability and simplify management.
