HPE on Tuesday announced new data services for its GreenLake platform, and showcased its new line of cloud-native data infrastructures, Alletra. GreenLake brings together all of HPE’s products as a service, and serves as a model for how managed services are spreading across much of the company’s range of offerings.
GreenLake takes many of HPE’s software and hardware offerings and combines them with HPE funding to produce a set of capabilities that can be paid for on an consumption basis, such as a managed service.
Regarding the new capabilities of GreenLake, HPE introduces the “Data Services Cloud Console”, which contains new data services in the cloud, and the HPE Alletra infrastructure portfolio. Together, HPE says these new features bring operational agility in the cloud and streamline data management for customers.
Helping customers “innovate faster than ever”
The new Data Services Cloud Console is based on the technology behind Aruba Central and is designed to deliver a unified API for HPE-led application automation, as well as partner-led and personalized data services. According to HPE, the console allows developers to access infrastructure and data as code.
Similarly, HPE’s new Data Ops Manager aims to provide data infrastructure management from any location, along with an application-centric, intent-based approach.
HPE explains that its Alletra range is natively managed by the Data Services Cloud console. It presents a series of systems optimized for the workload, namely the All-NVMe HPE Alletra 9000 and 6000 systems for architectural flexibility.
“HPE is a game-changer in storage by bringing a complete cloud operating model to our customers’ on-premises environments,” said Tom Black, SVP and GM, HPE Storage. “Bringing the cloud business model to where data lives accelerates digital transformation, streamlines data management and will help our customers innovate faster than ever. “
