Get in Touch
HPE GreenLake brought to you by Daisy Corporate Services, is the cloud that comes to you. GreenLake allows you to have a cloud-like experience on dedicated infrastructure in a data centre of your choice.

The GreenLake service is consumed monthly and scaled as your business alters. GreenLake helps smooth spend cycles and allows you to keep tight control of costs. Consumption and usage data is available via a portal and shared with you at regular intervals.

So why do you need HPE Greenlake?

Digital Transformation 2.0

The first wave of digital transformation was driven by the public cloud. We saw a surge of new business models, online experiences and operational efficiencies—all underpinned by increased speed, agility, scale and simplified IT. But the public cloud is not for everyone and everything. Even today, up to 70% of an enterprise’s mission-critical applications simply cannot move to the public cloud. Instead, they languish and fall ever further from the cutting-edge. Meanwhile, there is an explosion at the edge, combined with a rise in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), that is creating even more data and insights. Data gravity, latency and application dependencies mean we need to bring cloud services to this data—not the other way round.

The solution? Achieve the cloud experience for all apps and data everywhere. Watch our Everything-as-a-Service (EaaS) video to find out more.

EaaS

With Everything-as-a-Service you get a cloud-like experience on-site, on dedicated hardware.


  • Flexible costs and reduced total cost of ownership

  • Faster time to value: Curated solutions that evolve ahead of your needs

  • Cloud-like simplified IT: Operated for you to add business value

  • Proper control and security: In your IT environment, on premises

  • A suite of consumption-based solutions for your top workloads: Big data, backup, open database (Oracle DB compatible) as a service, and SAP HANA

  • Advisory and professional services options to help with solution design and integration

Plus, you pay for the outcomes you need, as you consume them.

What are your challenges?

We hear our customers ask for agility so IT can be ready for new business initiatives. For simpler IT to free up valuable people from “keep the lights on” work so they can spend more time innovating. Lower IT costs that are aligned to business benefits and not linked to capital budgets. And proper control over performance, security, compliance and their data.

We know you will no longer accept that moving to the cloud to reduce on-site costs and overhead comes at the price of losing control over your operations and data protection.

The answer is the transformative power of cloud-like consumption, everywhere you need it.

Good to know: HPE has signed a memorandum of understanding MOU with the UK’s Crown Commercial Services (CCS) to cut the complexity of cloud adoption by the public sector. Effective immediately, the agreement allows qualifying public sector bodies to benefit from minimum agreed discounts on a range of HPE technologies, including HPE GreenLake cloud services, which powers Everything-as-a-Service.
