Data is the lifeforce of the modern enterprise. And with applications and data spread across on-premises, edge, co-locations, and the public cloud, it is more important than ever for IT leaders to deliver cloud experiences to end-users, everywhere. To accelerate their transformation and innovate faster, organizations must become data-first.
HPE has been helping customers accelerate their IT modernization journeys with a data-first approach for some time now. And we’re not slowing down.
Today marks another significant milestone in our journey as we announce new HPE GreenLake cloud services and platform enhancements at HPE Discover 2022. New services include HPE GreenLake for HCI, HPE GreenLake for Disaster Recovery, HPE Backup and Recovery Service, and HPE GreenLake for Block Storage. These innovations are designed to help customers reduce data management complexity and embrace the cloud operational model.
And I can’t wait to share more about these innovations in person in Las Vegas in front of our customers and partners later today.
Data-first modernization begins with an always-on and always-fast data delivery so that applications are powered to support an organization’s needs. As I shared earlier this year, data-first businesses are more likely to outpace their competitors, recover faster from ransomware, and drive more innovation. This allows you to deliver more products to market and exceed revenue goals more easily.
Infrastructure management can be complex and require specialized expertise to manage. But it doesn’t have to be. Purely stated: the world needs a better, more straightforward approach to data and infrastructure management. An approach that eliminates the need for legacy infrastructure and can drive strategic business initiatives...the cloud operational model.
The Cloud Operational Model is the Answer
According to an ESG study1, 91% of IT leaders identified mature cloud operations on-premises as the most critical step to eliminating complexity. Public cloud has set the standard for agility, with an operational model that organizations can use to build and deploy new applications, services, and projects faster. And to make this transformation journey a reality, customers must shift to an as-a-service (aaS) model, which radically simplifies and automates data management and enables IT to meet the ever-increasing business needs while delivering self-service agility.
New Cloud Data Services
Today, we announced four new innovations to our Storage and data services portfolio that will help you modernize with a cloud operational experience.
HPE GreenLake for HCI
Now you can build a self-service cloud on-demand wherever you need it with HPE GreenLake for HCI. With cloud-based management and self-service agility, you can procure and manage virtual machines across on-premises and cloud environments. HPE GreenLake for HCI gives you the ability to:
- Get Hybrid Cloud VMs delivered as-a-Service, with predictable monthly payments
- Unify across hybrid cloud for VM to infrastructure management, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) VMs
- Go faster with the cloud operational experience and self-service agility
- Simplify hybrid cloud data protection and mobility
Expanded Data Protection as-a-Service
HPE GreenLake for Data Protection now offers two new modern data protection services, including industry-leading disaster recovery and ransomware protection2, and backup and recovery for AWS.
The conversation of protecting your data (from either natural disasters or cyberattacks) is no longer focused on IF you can recover but rather on how quickly you can get your business back up and running with minimal data loss. HPE GreenLake for Disaster Recovery brings Zerto’s leading RPOs and RTOs, based on Continuous Data Protection, to HPE GreenLake. It allows customers to resume operations in minutes at scale, recover to a state that is seconds prior to a disaster or attack, and de-risk your recovery with quick and non-disruptive testing.3
Our enhanced HPE Backup and Recovery Service delivers backup-as-a-service and is built for hybrid cloud. With HPE Backup and Recovery Service, you can start protecting your VMs in three simple steps and in less than five minutes, eliminating the complexities of managing and operating backup hardware, software, and cloud infrastructure together. With HPE Backup and Recovery Service, you can modernize backup for VMware and AWS, specifically Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) volumes across hybrid clouds.
HPE GreenLake for Block Storage
Today we’re also announcing that HPE GreenLake for Block Storage is now available. This new Storage aaS with HPE GreenLake for Block Storage, enables you to go faster with self-service agility, consume as a service, and run any app – without compromise. HPE GreenLake for Block Storage provides 100% data availability guaranteed for mission-critical applications and an industry-leading 99.9999% uptime for all other workloads.4
Today’s announcements demonstrate how HPE is helping customers accelerate data-first modernization by bringing the cloud operational experience where your data lives. And how we’re simplifying the customer experience across the board with HPE GreenLake. We will continue to deliver new and enhanced cloud data services to bring self-service agility and a cloud operational experience across edge to cloud.
