HPE GreenLake for Virtual Machines (VMs)
The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform for virtual machines helps to deliver business outcomes faster with cloud services designed for your top workloads.
STREAMLINE IT OPERATIONS WITH VIRTUAL MACHINES (VMs)
Virtualised infrastructures offer exceptional agility and flexibility for DevOps and data scientists. Bringing the approach into the on-premises data centre can bring public-cloud billing surprises to an end – and bring the power of virtual machines to your non-cloud-native workloads. But manually provisioning the infrastructure necessary to deliver truly cloud-like flexibility and velocity can be complex, and generally requires significant capital investment.

Whether you’re looking to expand the virtualised capacity of your data centre or you’re making an initial move to virtual machines, the HPE GreenLake platform delivers the virtualised flexibility, agility and velocity your business demands entirely as a service, with a total cost of ownership that’s 30% lower than you’d see with a traditional hardware purchase.* Plus, you’ll have exceptional visibility into – and control over – resource utilisation, and you’ll work side-by-side with HPE to expand your configuration as your needs evolve.
Significant cost savings
Reduce your total cost of ownership and eliminate the need for expensive overprovisioning, saving resource costs around managing on-premises hardware. HPE owns and installs the VM infrastructure in your on-premises or co-located data centre, your remote office/branch office (ROBO) or your edge location – and there’s no up-front capital investment.
Pay only for what you use
The HPE GreenLake platform offers you a pay-per-use solution for on-premises virtualisation. Variable monthly payments are based on your actual usage above your reserve capacity, with HPE managing and metering your usage for you. And built-in buffer capacity means you’re always prepared in case of growth or unexpected demand spikes.
Easy to configure, easy to consume
Assembling your own bespoke virtualisation solution can be costly and complex. Get the infrastructure that you need, tailored to your business, your VMs and your budget. Standardised virtual machine packages make it simple to choose your right configuration, and it can be up and running in your location in a matter of days.
Configurations to suit your business and your workloads
Virtual machines are used in different ways and for different workloads. Whether your needs are best served by general-purpose non-hyperconverged solutions, or if you operate a hyperconverged environment – and even if your virtual machine environment requires mission-critical resiliency – there are preconfigured options to meet your needs. And with multiple tiers per solution, it’s easy to select the scale that’s right for your business and your budget.
For your virtual machine infrastructure, the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform offers several configurations based on modular building blocks and offered in cost-optimised, balanced or performance options. You can order, receive and implement resources quickly in your location and grow capacity ahead of demand. Variable monthly payments are based on metered usage above your reserve, and you have transparent visibility into your costs and usage in near-real-time with the HPE GreenLake Central management console.

HPE GreenLake general-purpose VMs use VMware or Red Hat hypervisors and either HPE converged or industry-standard systems to deliver cost or performance optimised infrastructure for your size of VMs. You can choose systems based on HPE’s market-leading, industry-standard server, HPE ProLiant.
Hyperconverged systems dramatically simplify IT environments with unprecedented efficiency, performance, resiliency and intelligence. The HPE GreenLake platform with HPE SimpliVity, Nutanix and Microsoft Azure Stack HCI options enables you to streamline your IT operations and simplify your data centre with simple-to-manage, software-defined platforms.
For enterprise users with high-volume, high-complexity needs, the HPE GreenLake platform for private cloud is an HPE-managed, on-premises private cloud experience that enables exceptional DevOps performance with point-and-click simplicity.
“We have over 10,000 virtual machines delivering services. Synergy is well suited to run a multitenant environment like this because we can easily configure segregated virtual environments for each customer while having a common infrastructure to manage.”
