HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity is an extension of HPE’s Pointnext services division that focuses on delivering HPE infrastructure on an as-a-service basis. As such, it is a collection of consumption-based services available from HPE Pointnext. Services fall into three main categories:
HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity – pay-per-use acquisition for IT infrastructure (servers, storage, networking, etc.)
Workload Solutions – managed services focused on data protection, SAP HANA, Database and Big Data
Hybrid Cloud – managed hybrid cloud supporting AWS, Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack
HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity allows users to take complexity out of the infrastructure procurement and payment process—a trend which is more in line with the way customers now budget for cloud. HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity packages infrastructure (hardware and software) plus associated metering and usage tracking and support services and makes the offering available to customers on a monthly pay-per-use basis. HPE’s PointNext services division can also layer management services on top of HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity to meet individual customer needs, delivering both infrastructure and services such that customers can acquire an entire managed services solution on a pay-as-you-go, consumption-based acquisition model.
HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity allows customers to scale infrastructure capacity up or down while paying only for the capacity consumed. Depending on the infrastructure components, measured consumption can be based on VM’s, processors, containers, storage capacity, communications ports, etc. Automated measurement is enabled by the HPE Consumption Analytics Portal for metering and billing.
For ease of acquisition, the HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity consumption model has been packaged into the following HPE solutions as an optional acquisition strategy for HPE customers. All include metering for monthly billing, buffer capacity and on-demand flexibility.
HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity is also available from HPE channel partners who may also add their own services to these solutions.
As mentioned, HPE Pointnext can also offer HPE GreenLake solutions as part of a larger managed services engagement. These engagements are focused on broader set of customer requirements including backup, Big Data, SAP HANA, database, private cloud and hybrid cloud as a managed service. In the case of a hybrid cloud solution, HPE PointNext also uses IP from its Cloud Technology Partners acquisition to manage the public cloud side.
