HPE GreenLake Edge-to-Cloud Platform Powers Data Modernization with Breakthrough Analytics and Data Protection Cloud Services

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced a sweeping  series of new cloud services for the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform, providing customers unmatched capabilities to power digital transformation for their applications and data. This  represents HPE’s entry into two large, high-growth software markets – unified analytics and data  protection. Together, these innovations further accelerate HPE’s transition to a cloud services  company, and give customers greater choice and freedom for their business and IT strategy, with an  open and modern platform that provides a cloud experience everywhere. The new offerings, which add to a growing portfolio of HPE GreenLake cloud services, allow customers to innovate with agility,  at lower costs, and include the following: 

  • HPE GreenLake for analytics – open and unified analytics cloud services to modernize all  data and applications everywhere – on-premises, at the edge, and in the cloud
  • HPE GreenLake for data protection – disaster recovery and backup cloud services to help  customers take ransomware head-on and secure data from edge-to-cloud 
  • HPE Edge-to-Cloud Adoption Framework and automation tools – a comprehensive, proven  set of methodologies expertise, and automation tools to accelerate and de-risk the path to a  cloud experience everywhere 

“The big data and analytics software market, which IDC predicts will reach $110 billion by 20231, is  ripe for disruption, as customers seek a hybrid solution for enterprise datasets on-premises and at  the edge,” said Antonio Neri, president and CEO, at HPE. “Data is at the heart of every  

modernization initiative in every industry, and yet organizations have been forced to settle for legacy  analytics platforms that lack cloud-native capabilities, or force complex migrations to the public  cloud that require customers to adapt new processes and risk vendor lock-in. The new HPE  GreenLake cloud services for analytics empower customers to overcome these trade-offs and gives  them one platform to unify and modernize data everywhere. Together with the new HPE GreenLake  cloud services for data protection, HPE provides customers with an unparalleled platform to protect,  secure, and capitalize on the full value of their data, from edge to cloud.”  

HPE continues to accelerate momentum for the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform. The HPE  GreenLake platform now has more than 1,200 customers and $5.2 billion in total contract value. In  HPE’s most recent quarter, Q3 2021, HPE announced that the company’s Annualized Revenue Run  Rate was up 33 percent year-over-year, and as-a-service orders up 46 percent year-over-year3. Most  recently, HPE announced HPE GreenLake platform wins with Woolworths Group, Australia and New  Zealand’s largest retailer, and the United States National Security Agency
