These offerings were showcased during our Discover Virtual Experience.

These services and offerings we’ve made available to partners will bring them more opportunities to sell, help them better serve our joint customers, and more rapidly expand the scale and reach HPE GreenLake. These initiatives and our commitment to supporting channel partners are key aspects as we pursue our goal of delivering everything as-a-service by 2022.

Collaborative Opportunities with HPE GreenLake Central

HPE GreenLake Central is the advanced software platform that provides customers with a consistent cloud experience for all their applications and data through an operational console that runs, manages and optimises their entire hybrid IT estate. The platform allows users to get up-to-date information about their costs, capacity, or status of HPE GreenLake services through a simple point-and-click interface. HPE is actively integrating partners end-to-end across HPE GreenLake Central, and in 2021, partners will have their own access to the platform, providing them a unified view of customer data and further opportunities to engage with customers or sell additional services.
