HPE to reveal services upgrade on 22 March

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is planning to give its services business a boost, by unveiling “innovations and enhancements” to its GreenLake edge-to-cloud services platform on March 22.

News of the updates, which the channel will be able to take full advantage of, came from a briefing HPE CEO Antonio Neri (pictured) gave to financial analysts yesterday evening, after the firm posted its first quarter results.

Those results showed a 2% overall rise in sales to $7 billion, with indications that the company was seeing steady traction in services revenue, with GreenLake a driving force. The annualised revenue run-rate was $798 million, up 23% from the prior-year period, and total as-a-service orders were up 136% from the prior-year period.

“The traction we are seeing in the market for HPE GreenLake is driving us to fully accelerate the transformation of HPE into an information cloud company,” said Neri. “On March 22, we will unveil significant new innovations and enhancements for the HPE GreenLake platform, to help customers manage the hybrid cloud more easily, protect and get more value from their data, and securely connect at the edge.”

The enhancements include making it easier for HPE partners to integrate their services on the GreenLake platform through an API (application programming interface).

The move by HPE will cover services through private, public and hybrid clouds, and will better support areas like elastic/flexible compute and storage.
