Taking HPE GreenLake outside your data center

Businesses and organizations are building new hybrid infrastructures to deliver new IT services that require agility, resiliency, and security. Public cloud services are gaining popularity and business leaders are putting pressure on IT to deliver consumption-based IT experiences. Demands for security and control remain high.
Building IT on-premises serves compliance, control, and security purposes, but it takes a lot of time and effort, up-front capital, and ongoing maintenance. Consuming IT from the public cloud enables speed, scale, and convenience, but many applications are not optimized for the cloud and you lose the advantage of on-premises control. Bottom line, different workloads have different requirements, which is why hybrid solutions are so appealing. The reality though is that hybrid cloud is complex, requiring time, resources, and skillsets that are not always available when you need them. It's well-known that the majority of IT resources are still devoted to day-to-day operations, leaving little time to focus on delivering technology innovation to meet business demands. And the weight of owning and operating a data center further limits flexibility and scalability.
The challenge for IT is to tap into the flexibility and convenience of the cloud, still maintain security and control, and alleviate the operational burden on IT. In response to these challenges, Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers consumption-based IT, HPE GreenLake, and the good news is that you don't need to run a data center to use HPE GreenLake.
