Grazed from HPE

Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud, a new consumption experience designed to help customers manage and optimize their on- and off-premises clouds. HPE GreenLake Hybrid Cloud is an automated cloud operating model, leveraging HPE's leading intellectual property and standardized with HPE best practices to help customers consume the exact cloud resources they need, wherever their workloads live - while driving improved performance, cost, security and compliance. By eliminating the need for staff to manage the hybrid environment day-to-day, the new solution helps diminish human error and enables staff to focus on innovation.

Hybrid IT is the reality for most enterprises as it allows them to blend a mix of applications, services and platforms, all tailored to their needs.  However, many enterprises struggle with the complexity of operating different private, public and hybrid clouds and having the right skills to oversee and manage their cloud implementation, which can lead to unknown, unrestrained cost and risk. According to Gartner by 2020, organizations that lack cost optimization processes will average 40% overspend in public cloud. In addition, many customers lack automation and simple tools to unleash the agility of the cloud, and continuous monitoring of controls and compliance frameworks to manage risk.
