Today, we’re excited to announce the next step in our partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE): the general availability of HPE GreenLake for Anthos. As you look to move to hybrid cloud at your own pace and on your own terms, HPE GreenLake for Anthos enables you to seamlessly build, run, and manage services on premises and in the cloud with our hybrid and multi-cloud platform. You can deploy containers on demand without having to manage the underlying infrastructure on premises. Now more than ever, you can choose how you want to consume your IT infrastructure.
Google Cloud’s Anthos: A modern application platform for your business
The Anthos platform is an ideal approach to an increasingly hybrid and multi-cloud world. Anthos lets you build, deploy, and manage applications anywhere in a secure, consistent manner. The platform lets you modernize existing applications running on virtual machines as well as deploy cloud-native apps on containers, all while providing a consistent development and operations experience across deployments, reducing operational overhead, and improving developer productivity.
HPE Greenlake for Anthos: The best of both worlds
HPE GreenLake for Anthos combines the simplicity, agility, and cost-effectiveness of Google’s container hosting and management across hybrid and multi-cloud environments with the security, performance, and control of HPE’s on-premises architecture. HPE GreenLake for Anthos provisions and integrates hardware, software, and services to create an on-premises Anthos solution that is consumed as a cloud-like service.
HPE GreenLake for Anthos enables a service-oriented architecture that makes the most of the benefits of container technologies. Start with the capacity you need today and grow your infrastructure as your applications require, using Anthos’ cluster lifecycle capabilities and HPE GreenLake’s active capacity management. Anthos Config Management delivers a gitops approach for managing clusters and simplifying many administrative tasks, freeing up your IT team to focus on delivering real business value.
HPE is a build, sell and services partner of Google Cloud allowing HPE to be your single point of contact, providing advisory and professional services, managing capacity, billing, and supporting the entire stack. HPE Greenlake’s pay-per-use billing model means you consume the capacity you need—no more and no less. At the same time, HPE proactively monitors usage and provisions additional available capacity ahead of demand, which reduces the risk of investing too much or too little in your IT infrastructure. You get a scalable solution that simplifies your Anthos experience and makes it easier to understand current and future costs.
“At Hewlett Packard Enterprise, our mission is to help customers accelerate their digital transformation and modernization strategy with HPE GreenLake cloud services that are self-service, pay per use, all managed for them and available in the environment of their choice from the edge to the cloud,” said Keith White, SVP and GM of HPE GreenLake Cloud Services. “As a trusted Google partner, we are pleased to offer HPE GreenLake for Anthos to provide our joint customers choice and the cloud experience on premises that best meets their needs and provides the greatest positive outcomes for their business.”
Anthos is available with three HPE solutions: HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure, HPE Nimble Storage dHCI, and HPE Synergy composable infrastructure. For customers who want to build and run their own environment, HPE offers HPE Reference Architectures for Anthos GKE deployed on premises. All offerings enable hybrid Dev/Test environments, so you can develop and deploy anywhere—in multiple public clouds as well as on premises.
Help simplify IT and make modernization easier—-on premises or in the cloud—with hybrid cloud solutions seamlessly built on Google Cloud’s Anthos with HPE’s proven technology and services.
