HPE brings new HPE GreenLake cloud experience to Europe

Successful trials in Ireland will lead to an expansion to the UK, Germany, France, and the Netherlands

HPE has teamed up with colocation service provider Interxion to bring GreenLake services to the European market, in a move it says will offer a managed cloud experience without the complexity of managing data centres.

Hosted at Interxion’s colocation data centres, the HPE GreenLake cloud services initiative has been designed to allow customers to maintain ownership of their data and workloads, minus the need to manage on-site data.

Announcing the move, the tech giant said the setup will bring a host of benefits – such as greater visibility of resource utilisation across co-located and public cloud-based workloads, as well as governance across enterprise applications and data. It will also enable enterprises to interconnect with connectivity providers, public clouds and each other, the firm said.

To begin with, HPE is introducing a pilot program in Ireland – but a successful trial will see the scheme quickly expand to the UK, Germany, France and the Netherlands.

“As the cloud gateway to Europe, Ireland is the perfect market to trial this new hosted HPE GreenLake cloud offer,” commented Maeve Culloty, Managing Director of HPE Ireland. “By running workloads as a service on dedicated hardware at a colocation data center, customers are getting the best of both worlds: the convenience of cloud and the security and compliance associated with a traditional on-premise infrastructure.”

The announcement follows the launch of new HPE GreenLake’s new cloud services last month, which opened up access to a host of cloud services that can be deployed via HPE GreenLake Central.

Now, thanks to the Interxion collaboration, customers can leverage further key benefits – such as eliminating the cost of on-premise data centres and gaining access to public cloud providers, the company claims. Businesses will also have visibility over usage and spend, keep control of data and processes, all while running their workloads in data centres powered by 100% renewable energy.

Initially, HPE and Interxion said they are offering HPE GreenLake cloud services for private cloud with containers or virtual machines, and data centre infrastructure – which will be available via HPE and HPE channel partners.

“Our agreement to launch HPE GreenLake cloud services hosted in our data centers improves speed and agility by increasing customers’ connectivity to public clouds while staying in control of cost, security and compliance without the need to invest in an on-premise data center, as they can deploy HPE GreenLake solutions in Interxion’s colocation data centers,” commented Séamus Dunne, managing director of Interxion Ireland.

“Interxion will help businesses safeguard mission-critical data, while also taking into account their security needs and operational reliability.”
