HPE GreenLake for VMware Debuts
more than two decades, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and VMware have been at the
leading-edge of driving digital transformations, working with more than 200,000
mutual customers. Today at VMware Explore 2022 Europe, the companies announced
the next phase of this partnership with HPE GreenLake for VMware, bringing
together HPE GreenLake and VMware Cloud to deliver a fully integrated solution
with a simple pay-as-you-go hybrid cloud consumption model.
“Today’s announcement with VMware represents the next step in the expanding
partner ecosystem of HPE GreenLake, which offers a differentiated edge-to-cloud
solution that resonates with customers and partners,” said Antonio Neri,
president and chief executive officer, HPE. “Together, HPE and VMware will give
organizations greater choice and flexibility with a fully integrated hybrid
cloud offering designed to accelerate innovation and data first modernization.”
“Organizations are looking to evolve from a state of cloud chaos where cost and
complexity reign, to a more cloud smart approach,” said Raghu Raghuram, chief
executive officer at VMware. “VMware Cloud is the trusted platform for
enterprise workloads on private and public clouds that gives customers the
flexibility and choice to become cloud smart. VMware and HPE will enable
customers to combine VMware’s state-of-the-art multi-cloud software with HPE
GreenLake’s cloud operating model and consumption economics to support any
workload on a modern hybrid cloud.”
Modern Hybrid Cloud Made Fast and Simple
Many organizations today seek the simplicity of a turnkey hybrid cloud that
integrates leading software, infrastructure, and services from the vendors of
their choice, all delivered from a single strategic partner as a cloud service.
This approach accelerates deployment and simplifies operational complexity to
enable customers to quickly deploy their hybrid cloud.
HPE GreenLake for VMware will provide customers with a fully integrated and
modern hybrid cloud experience. Customers will benefit from a true cloud
experience coupled with the benefit of purchasing only the amount of
infrastructure they require through a pay-as-you-go cloud consumption model.
Customers will also have the flexibility to determine the best environment for
operating their hybrid cloud. VMware Cloud will be fully integrated across the
HPE GreenLake portfolio including HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise and
customers will be able to deploy on-premises, in colocation facilities or at the
edge, all managed by HPE GreenLake.
HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform provides customers and partners with a
unified experience, and easy access to more than 70 cloud services. Today, HPE
GreenLake supports more than 120,000 users, powers more than two million
connected devices, and manages more than one exabyte of data with customers
worldwide. Among the top 100 HPE customers, nearly 80 percent have already
adopted the HPE GreenLake platform. Organizations benefit from one platform from
which to automate, orchestrate, and run their hybrid cloud strategy.
VMware Cloud delivers a modern multi-cloud infrastructure on any cloud, with
built-in Kubernetes, integrated security and the best possible TCO. VMware Cloud
makes modern application development and deployment faster, easier, and less
expensive by making Kubernetes part of the core infrastructure platform. VMware
Cloud is more secure by design, enabling micro-segmentation to stop modern
lateral threats that move within and across cloud and data center environments.
HPE GreenLake customers will be able to extend VMware Cloud environments to a
variety of colocation and edge environments, bringing cloud capacity to the
places where distributed applications need it most.
Hybrid Cloud Delivered by Trusted Leaders in Enterprise Innovation
With a history of co-engineered solutions, customers can be confident deploying
an enterprise hybrid cloud designed, managed, and supported by HPE and VMware.
HPE and VMware share the industry’s largest virtualized server footprint, and
collectively have more than 100,000+ global partners and 25,000+ solution
experts. As joint collaboration partners within the expanding HPE GreenLake
ecosystem, HPE and VMware will continue to accelerate the pace of co-innovation,
such as industry-first support for VMware vSphere on DPUs.
HPE GreenLake for VMware is expected to be available in the first half of
calendar year 2023.
