Infosys INFY recently announced that it is partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE - Free Report) for using the latter’s GreenLake consumption model to aid clients' journey to hybrid cloud.
HPE GreenLake is a new consumption-based IT model that focuses on outcome-based consumption, delivering the best aspects of both public cloud and on premises IT. Several services make up the model, including Big Data, databases, backup, storage, compute and Edge, and it is compatible with Microsoft Azure and SAP HANA.
The joint efforts of the companies will ensure that enterprises make informed infrastructure investments and benefit from the security of a private cloud while enjoying the scalability and other advantages of a public cloud. Moreover, total cost of ownership will also significantly fall.
Clients increasingly prefer to rely on cloud-based services as it makes the IT system more agile and productive, leading to considerable cost savings. This model helps simplify IT operations of the companies that adopt it.
Narsimha Rao Mannepalli, Executive Vice President and Head, Cloud & Infrastructure Solutions Service, Infosys said, "Enterprises today are looking at optimizing their Hybrid IT investments and accelerating their digital initiatives. Our partnership with HPE will provide enterprises a compelling value proposition of a consumption-based IT model and the comfort of managed services.”
