HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA: Makes total sense

By Mike Molaison

HPE Flexible Capacity was a revolutionary idea when it was launched a few years ago. Imagine being able to enjoy the best of two worlds:

  • The affordability and flexibility of the cloud
  • The security and control of on-prem

 HPE Flexible Capacity basically made IT so much easier to acquire and consume – exactly what is needed in response to today’s rapidly-evolving IT and business realities and challenges.  Since its introduction, HPE has focused on making this pay-per-use model even more attractive by refining it for specific use cases and technologies. The resulting HPE GreenLake packages now mean you can access a solution that is finely tuned to meet a specific business and IT need WITH the proven benefits of a consumption-based approach.

 And for the many of you running SAP HANA environments, the news is even better, because HPE now offers and HPE GreenLake package specifically for you.  HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA provides the benefits of an on-prem solution, removing the unknowns associated with the network (bandwidth, latency),and security and allowing you effectively to have more control.  

You also get to control SLAs and availability,.  And unlike other cloud-based cloud offerings where the provider decides when you get application updates and which version you run, HPE GreenLake for  SAP HANA lets you  control when specific application upgrades are applied.  Makes total sense, doesn't it?
