HPE introduces channel programmes, GreenLake cloud services
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has debuted a number of as-a-service offerings and initiatives to help partners expand revenue opportunities and accelerate delivery with its GreenLake cloud services and software platform.
These new offerings are optimised for the edge, data centre and co-location facilities, the compamny says.
Paul Hunter, HPE Worldwide head of Partner Sales says HPE GreenLake for Partners Programme offers the ability to add their own services with consumption offers for customers.
“The cloud services and offerings we’re making available to partners will bring more opportunities to better serve our joint customers.”
The company has introduced accelerated delivery of HPE GreenLake allowing more streamlined delivery – from order to run in 14 days. Based on pre-integrated building blocks, the new cloud services are now available in small, medium and large configurations, and are rapidly scalable.
In addition, it debuted new cloud services for distributed environments offering partners new cloud services through the GreenLake Central catalogue. These services, which can all be deployed and run in the customers’ environment, include cloud services for networking, data protection, containers and VMs.
Finally, HPE says it is actively integrating partners end-to-end across HPE GreenLake Central, and in 2021, partners will have their own access to the platform, providing a unified view of customer data.
In addition, the HPE GreenLake for Partners Programme, in addition to converged data management and modern file storage cloud services offerings with Cohesity and Qumulo, respectively, is offering partners scalable object storage with Scality RING and consumption-based data protection with Veeam.
Also, it introduced HPE GreenLake management services to help manage, operate and optimise infrastructure, apps and workloads in specialised environments, such as SAP HANA or Hadoop.
HPE is also offering learning opportunities for partners to build practices and skills related to containers. This training is being integrated into the Partner Ready programme.
