As one of the most critical parts of your IT estate, determining how and where your underlying infrastructure is best deployed to meet the needs of your data, applications and your users plays a crucial role in your success.
While public cloud is the best fit in some instances, some workloads are best retained on-premises via a private cloud. For users, who continue to access data and applications from one accessible source, private cloud delivers a public cloud-like experience. But for IT teams, the need to deploy, manage and maintain the underlying datacentre hosting their private cloud sees it fail to deliver the commercial and operational benefits of public cloud.
Put simply, existing private cloud offerings often fail to alleviate the burden of deploying and managing infrastructures. But for those struggling with the cost and complexity of managing their infrastructure, help is on the horizon.
At HPE Discover 2023, HPE revealed their newest answer to easing IT infrastructure management moans, HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Business Edition.
Although its long-winded title might not roll off the tongue, stick with us as the business benefits are well worth shouting about.
HPE describe Business Edition as: “a self-service, self-managed private cloud on demand wherever you need it with a unified interface to simplify VM to infrastructure management”. Let’s break that down into the core things you need to know about Business Edition:
Business Edition is the future of consuming private cloud as a Service. IT teams can combine the reassurance of knowing that data is still secured and retained on-premises, with the genuine simplicity of use, scalability and predictability of cost delivered from a public cloud offering:
