HPE launched a series of features for GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise. The solution will be updated with self-service VMs, optimized instances and analytics tools for public cloud apps.

The goal of HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise is a public cloud experience for on-premises infrastructure. This means that DevOps professionals can use a central environment to deploy and manage workloads on on-premises hardware. By adding public clouds to the environment, organizations create a hybrid cloud.

HPE recently announced that the solution will be updated in the first quarter of 2023. Customers gain access to a range of new features.

HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise

First, a new integration of Amazon EKS Anywhere makes it possible to mirror public cloud container runtimes on on-premises infrastructure. In addition, users can now procure managed VMs, containers and bare metal servers with self-service APIs, command line interfaces (CLIs) and infrastructure-as-code (IaC).

The managed VMs, containers and bare metal servers are available with various pre-installed operating systems, applications and toolchains. The idea is similar to a solution like Microsoft Dev Box, which provides access to a cloud instance with all the necessities for application development. Unlike Microsoft Dev Box, HPE’s solution runs on the customer’s on-premises infrastructure.

Furthermore, HPE will expand its instance offering with six optimized options. The instances are configured for memory-intensive, compute-intensive and storage-intensive workloads. HPE is also introducing analytics tools for public cloud applications. Organizations can monitor capacity usage through dashboards and reports to plan resources and reduce unnecessary cloud spending.

The updates will be available from the first quarter of 2023.
