The new offering incorporates the breadth of Aruba networking offerings, including: enterprise Wi-Fi, edge switching, security, end-user analytics, end-user experience validation and other tools. HPE Greenlake for Aruba is available directly from Aruba and its global network of channel partners.
- HPE and Google Cloud have expanded their strategic partnership to provide customers with hybrid cloud solutions. Building on the HPE Validated Designs that were announced in April, HPE and Google Cloud are unveiling a collaboration to deliver a true hybrid cloud for containers — with choice for as-a-service delivery through HPE GreenLake. In addition, HPE will offer advisory and professional services to accelerate hybrid cloud adoption.
The true hybrid cloud solution features Google Cloud’s Anthos in combination with HPE’s on-premises infrastructure, HPE Cloud Data Services and HPE GreenLake. The combined offering brings together Google Cloud’s Anthos with HPE ProLiant and HPE Nimble Storage on premises. And coming soon, HPE Cloud Volumes will provide a storage service for Google Cloud Platform and other public clouds. HPE plans to offer GreenLake for Google Cloud’s Anthos to provide the entire hybrid cloud as a service.
The HPE GreenLake offerings for the midmarket, HPE GreenLake offerings through colocation partners CyrusOne and Equinix, and HPE GreenLake for Aruba are available now.
