CapEx savings and cost transparency
The pay-per-use model means you avoid up-front capital expenditure, while HPE GreenLake Central gives you unrivalled insight into your consumption. Near-real-time visibility into consumption and costs allows for midstream adjustment and no billing surprises.
Comprehensive management and support
HPE monitors and manages aggregate demand and performance in real time, while you have a single point of contact for all support needs. The HPE infrastructure management team handles proactive support for your deployment, while HPE technical solutions specialists can work remotely or on-site to resolve critical issues.
Streamlined DevOps provisioning
Ensure compliance with cost and resource parameters while speeding application development and deployment. Our private cloud dashboard lets you define scale and cost parameters for different VMs and different roles, then give developers and other users self-serve, point-and-click access to the resources they need.
Centralised SaaS-based management
Consumption analytics let you compare the costs of running workloads on premises versus the public cloud – letting you run your high-priority workloads on your dedicated on-premises hardware for consistent performance and throughput.
HPE GreenLake for private cloud is built on HPE GreenLake Lighthouse, cloud-native infrastructure that delivers purpose-built computing, storage and networking plus HPE GreenLake Central and VMware virtualisation software. This cloud service supports a range of scalable configurations from one hundred up to thousands of virtual machines. Compute instance types include general purpose and memory or CPU-optimised options, and storage includes hybrid or all-flash volume types. 100G switches supported by Aruba Fabric Composer provide the high-performance interconnect.
- Most deployments are three to five years in duration, with 60% to 80% reserved capacity
- Monthly billing is based on allocated compute and storage (both per GB), and directly linked to usage over a predefined reserve capacity.
- Built-in buffer capacity addresses unexpected surges in demand – with no increase in unit cost
- HPE works with you to grow deployment ahead of business growth

What is metered
Usage is metered based on two units of measure: compute (per GB) and storage (per GB). vCPU is not metered.
