HPE recently launched its AI strategy for MSPs, GreenLake for Large Language Models (LLMs), a cloud computing platform that provides on-demand AI modeling in a supercomputing cloud environment. The platform is part of HPE’s $2.6 billion investment in artificial intelligence, including its purchase of Cray supercomputers; Determined AI, a machine learning software development environment for engineers and data scientists; Pachyderm, software that automates data versioning and reproducibility in AI models, and the in-house development of inference software.

That evolving platform is obviously geared toward high-end enterprise applications. It’s what you’d expect from a company with “enterprise” in its name. What’s less obvious is that HPE is casting a wide net to bring more MSPs serving SMBs into its fold. That move is apparent by HPE’s new Partner Ready Vantage Program, initiatives to break into new markets with MSPs, and an AI strategy that provides MSPs with the tools and services they need to create and deliver applications and solutions to the SMB.

AI Strategy & GreenLake


HPE’s Fidelma Russo

“Instead of having to buy a supercomputer, which I’m sure many of us do not have the budgets for, you can now simply subscribe to HPE GreenLake for Large Language Models as a service,” Fidelma Russo, HPE’s CTO, said at last month’s Discover conference. “There you will have access to one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world to train your data or leverage our models. There will be a button for that on the GreenLake platform, making AI accessible for all.”

Evan Sparks, chief product officer for AI at HPE and founder of Determined AI, which HPE bought about two years ago, took time to flesh out HPE’s AI strategy and how MSPs can leverage the platforms for SMB and larger customers. As part of its AI investment, Sparks was quick to point out, HPE has hired hundreds of engineers to help MSPs and others with their AI projects and strategies.

“We’re pushing forward as quickly as we can,” he said.
