No overprovisioning expense

You select your HPE GreenLake deployment based on your current general-purpose VM needs, and we include built-in buffer capacity to cover unexpected spikes in demand. Your usage is metered and capacity is managed jointly with HPE, so we can scale up capacity ahead of business growth.

Streamline operations with a simplified solution

Optional management services from HPE can allow you to offload much of your day-to-day infrastructure management workload – while the design, architecture and installation of your infrastructure is performed by HPE and included in your base cost.

Cost transparency

Variable monthly charges are based on actual metered usage above your reserve capacity. With HPE GreenLake Central platform, you have near-real-time visibility into the usage and costs of your virtualised environment.

Our highest level of support

HPE GreenLake includes a single point of contact for your support needs, with an assigned HPE support team that understands your specific IT environment and business workflows.

General-purpose virtual machine configurations

These standardised configurations, built on the HPE ProLiant platform, are composed of tried-and-tested infrastructure building blocks that maximise efficiency, asset utilisation and agility in a hybrid IT environment. They are suitable for a variety of common VM workloads and offer you the financial flexibility of a pay-per-use solution. Plus as your demand grows over time, HPE will work with you to expand your capacity ahead of business needs.

We offer three tiers of general-purpose virtual machine infrastructure configurations, designed to suit different workload, consumption and budgetary requirements.

General Purpose



Who is this recommended for?

Any environment where flexibility is needed. Typical workloads include webservers/web applications, batch processing, code repositories and non-mission-critical production workloads.

Any environment where hyperconverged workloads are desired. Options are available that provide a choice of hypervisors, or the hypervisor can be provided as part of your deployment.

Enterprise businesses, or production or research environments with specific workload compute, memory and storage optimisation needs. Typical workloads include big data, NOSQL dBs, graphics processing, optical recognition and high-resolution video editing.
