Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has rolled out various innovation updates to its HPE GreenLake cloud services portfolio with an aim to drive hybrid cloud disruption.

The enterprise IT company also added new capabilities and partnerships aimed at simplifying the experience and expand the reach of the HPE GreenLake cloud services business.

It has unveiled three new modular cloud services under the suite designed to offer low-cost, smaller entry points for customers.

Using HPE GreenLake cloud services for bare metal, customers can discover, provision and handle compute and storage resources in HPE GreenLake Central to directly run workloads on the server. Customers can also use virtual machines (VMs) or containers in the mix that is most appropriate to their business.

The company said that customers can now select from various deployments, and also compute and storage instance types sized for 100 VMs and more, in standardised blocks with 4, 8, 12, and 16 compute nodes.

HPE has also added the option to add backup as a service in its VMs cloud service.

The company said that HPE GreenLake cloud service for containers can provide solutions for the HPE Ezmeral Container platform, based on small, medium, large and extra-large capacity sizes.

HPE has also reached new agreements with ALSO Group, Ingram Micro, Arrow Electronics, Tech Data, and Synnex for expanding the market presence for HPE GreenLake Cloud Services by integrating the suite in their online marketplaces.

Apart from that, the company said that it has expanded its colocation partnership with CyrusOne and collaboration with Equinix to further simplify the cloud experience for joint customers.

HPE GreenLake Cloud Services senior vice president and general manager Keith White said: “As the market leader in hybrid and on-premises cloud services, HPE continues to innovate to bring HPE GreenLake and the cloud experience to a broader set of customers for their digital transformation and modernization efforts – at the edge, colocation facility, or datacentre.

“The HPE partner ecosystem plays a central role in our success, and partners of all types are embedding HPE GreenLake into their business models and offerings to deliver an agile as-a-service experience to their clients.”

The company said that it has enabled a new simplified billing experience on HPE GreenLake Central that lets partners provide a quicker and seamless cloud experience to their customers.

Additionally, HPE announced improved features to the HPE GreenLake for Aruba offering. The features are customised to partners looking to transition to an as-a-service selling model while helping end customers get maximum return on their networking investments, said the company.
