Enterprises have embraced hybrid IT for many reasons: Speed and agility, cost optimization and efficiency, protecting and managing key data stores, and more. However, several factors have made it difficult for companies to move the majority of their key applications to the cloud. For example, data gravity, application entanglement, security and compliance, and unpredictable costs present obstacles that prevent companies from making the shift to hybrid IT on their own.
The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform with Digital Realty colocation services allows customers the benefits of offloading data center management—with all its resource- and capital-intense demands—while keeping full control of enterprise IT. That means you can keep an eye on resource utilization across co-located and public cloud-based workloads, including governance of all enterprise applications and data, without the operational burden of construction and building maintenance, security, and failover systems needed for an on-premises data center. The HPE GreenLake platform can manage your IT infrastructure and services at any Digital Realty colocation facility or in a hybrid environment, while allowing you to keep control to implement and operate the way you need.
