Consumption-based, fully managed

Containers give you the power, efficiency, and portability you need for enterprise-level, mission-critical application environments. The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform offers a high-performance, on-premises container solution in a pay-per-use model. HPE engineers perform installation and configuration, and HPE provides complete management of your solution, a single point of contact for support and a technical team who knows your environment and your business. And with a standardized hardware and software build, you avoid a costly manual deployment, and you can have it delivered to your data center.

Enterprise-grade performance and security

Deploy containers on infrastructure that supports high availability for mission-critical applications and integrates into enterprise security and authentication services. You’ll avoid creating data copies, regardless of where your containers are running or where your data is stored.

Cost transparency

You have near-real-time visibility into your consumption with the HPE GreenLake Central platform. Your usage is metered and managed by HPE, so we can help you scale capacity up or down as needed, and you’re only billed for actual usage above your reserve capacity.

One-click provisioning

A self-service experience with a curated app store of pre-built application images offers streamlined deployment and management for a wide range of use cases, including application modernization, AI/ML, analytics, IoT, and CI/CD.

Simplified Kubernetes management and pre-integrated data fabric

Deploy and manage multiple Kubernetes clusters across your environment with a multi-tenant control plane, and simply click a check box to include scale-out persistent storage in a new container.

HPE GreenLake for containers

HPE GreenLake for containers is powered by HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise, a CNCF-certified distribution using 100% open-source upstream Kubernetes. It’s built on 100% open-source upstream Kubernetes, optimized for multi-tenant, multi-cluster management, and it’s suitable for cloud-native apps, non-cloud-native apps, and legacy apps—even stateful ones requiring persistent storage. Cluster management enables administrators to easily create clusters, add policies and permissions, and allocate clusters to developers.
