Hybrid Cloud Solutions
Cloud services, cloud software and infrastructure solutions delivered as a service to help you successfully implement a cloud experience for all your workloads.
Solve your complex challenges with HPE Hybrid Cloud Solutions
Moving to cloud isn’t a matter of why, but a matter of when and how. Cloud promises speed, agility and cost savings – but realising the full value of cloud requires solving difficult challenges such as data gravity, security, compliance with regulations, cost management and the need for organisational change. HPE's hybrid cloud solutions can help your business navigate cloud complexities and speed your digital transformation through a proven methodology for transforming people, processes and technology.
- Take a hybrid approach
- Make a comprehensive plan for cloud
- Control and optimise cloud costs
Innovate faster with the cloud experience everywhere
Apps that can easily move to the cloud already have. Meanwhile, two out of every three apps remain on-premises due to issues such as data gravity, sovereignty, compliance, cost and interdependencies with other systems. This leaves enterprises caught in the middle of old and new, struggling to reach their transformation goals within a complex dual IT operating environment.
HPE brings agility to apps and data everywhere ‒ edges, clouds and data centres ‒ eliminating complexity and silos, driving speed and agility with common tools, processes and automation. We’ll help you address the non-cloud native apps that are slowing you down and get you on the path to a unified, modern cloud strategy.
- Bring the cloud experience to your non-cloud-native apps
- Containerise monolithic applications to improve efficiency, increase agility and provide portability – rebuilding and refactoring apps that need to move to the cloud
- Shift to agile DevOps processes with HPE Pointnext Services
- Streamline your development process and leverage microservices to quickly build and deploy applications

Common questions customers ask about Hybrid Cloud
Can everything be moved to cloud? Where should my apps and data live?
Every company is different, and every app has its own set of considerations that inform where it should be placed. General factors include performance, latency, risk, data needs, network connections, architectural considerations and security.
With the HPE Right Mix Advisor (RMA) approach from HPE Pointnext, you can determine the best-fit application destinations for your preferred combination of public and private resources. Choices are based on the unique price-performance, portability, operational, and business requirements of each workload.
Is now the right time to move to cloud? Are we ready?
Most businesses have realised that their flexibility, speed and ability to adapt to emerging market trends in coming years will depend on adopting a successful cloud strategy. At the same time, the need to get cloud right, and to not disrupt business-critical functions in the process, weighs heavily on those who will be responsible for implementing a cloud-native approach. HPE can help assess your business’s cloud readiness and mitigate any gaps.
How can I structure a plan to get some quick wins?
A comprehensive application profiling exercise will show which applications should be first-movers based on ease-and-impact analysis. To quickly show the value of moving to cloud, applications that are likely to be high ROI, low risk and easy to migrate and run in the cloud should be moved first.
What should be done with our existing IT assets?
HPE Financial Services can help you determine the best strategy for dealing with existing assets. Transform your data centre and generate a cash infusion from your owned assets with minimal disruptions to your current environment with our Accelerated Migration programme, or refurbish and remarket unwanted assets with our Asset Upcycling services.
How can I calculate the financial costs and benefits of moving to cloud?
The business value of cloud is more about agility and utilisation than any other cost consideration. Traditionally, high utilisation reduces IT spend, but limits agility and negatively impacts innovation and business growth.
Cloud provides the ability to provision and de-provision nearly unlimited resources as needed with complete control. Moving from the standard 20% to near 100% utilisation provides significant cost advantages and even greater value in the ability to quickly solve business problems without waiting for software and hardware procurement and installation.
In addition to this, moving to cloud typically produces both hard and soft cost savings. Examples of hard cost savings include reduced spending on infrastructure and operational costs. Soft savings include increased developer productivity, decreased human error, ability to change business process quickly and increased customer satisfaction.
Are “IT consumption” models a good thing or a gimmick?
Paying only for the resources you use, along with the ability to quickly provision and de-provision resources, gives you valuable flexibility. Your business can avoid costly over provisioning, consume the latest technologies without “ripping and replacing” data centre infrastructure, and give staff the ability to experiment with new products and solutions in a low-risk, low-cost manner.
How do we prevent cloud costs from skyrocketing?
Ensuring that apps are optimised for their environments is a good first step to avoiding unexpected costs. Maintaining visibility across your entire IT estate, as you can with HPE GreenLake Central, can also help you stay on top of what you’re spending and why.
