HPE is significantly expanding its GreenLake cloud services platform with 12 new packages that focus on strengthening and simplifying networking, high-performance computing (HPC) and storage environments.

The goal of GreenLake and these new offerings is to offer customers greater flexibility in the way they build and manage their infrastructure, whether it's on premises, at the edge, in a colocation facility, or in a public cloud, according to Alan Ni, HPE Aruba senior director of edge marketing.

HPE's new network services let customers procure prepackaged components of a networking environment, such as wired, wireless and SD-Branch, as needed under the company’s HPE GreenLake for Aruba networking-as-a-service offering. GreenLake has offered NaaS since 2020, but services weren’t offered in such an incremental way.

“What we've done is build specific service packs around eight specific use cases where we're including all the customer premise equipment, or CPE, that is required to provide some of these capabilities, all the software licensing and support and additional mounting hardware etc.,” Ni said. 

And from a channel perspective, which is the way most of these services are sold, these packages are closely tied to how a traditional transaction transpires. "The goal here is really to speed up deployments," Ni said.
