The debate around the pros and cons of public cloud and on-premise IT infrastructure has driven many businesses to adopt a hybrid cloud solution in an attempt to reap the benefits of both worlds.
One major disadvantage of this approach, however, is that it is difficult to manage. IT resources are still devoted to day-to-day operations, leaving little room for innovation.
IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) has the ability to take a hybrid multicloud IT strategy to the next level by reducing inefficiencies inherent in most IT environments and enabling enterprises to meet their business and sustainability goals.
HPE GreenLake is HPE’s market-leading ITaaS offering, delivering a cloud experience to apps and data everywhere, in a fully managed, pay-per-use model.

HPE GreenLake provides an outcome-based IT consumption model, which radically simplifies IT and frees up resources to optimise operations and increase profitability.
It enables you to manage the footprint of your IT assets throughout the
duration of the lifecycle via personalised customer support, software tools, and portals.
This is the achieved through a wide range of features, including:
- Preconfigured solutions allowing for delivery and installation in as little as 14 days.
- Centralised control and insights via the HPE GreenLake Central platform, helping to manage resources, costs, capacity, compliance, and more across on‑premises and cloud environments.
