Choosing between cloud vs on-prem comes down to one question:

Do you want to host everything in-house in an on-premise environment, or do you want a third-party provider to host everything for you?

Chances are, you want a bit of both. This will lead you to the hybrid cloud, but the hybrid cloud does not take advantage of edge computing – a critical paradigm for real-time data-driven decision-making.

Thankfully, there is another architecture – edge-to-cloud – where you don’t have to choose between cloud and on-premises or sacrifice the edge.

Edge-to-cloud powers data-first modernisation by letting you control and harness data across the edge to the cloud, bringing these platforms together in a secure solution.

HPE GreenLake

HPE GreenLake is the best open and secure edge-to-cloud platform available, connecting your data securely where it lives.

HPE GreenLake is a central management platform that brings the cloud – no matter where it resides—to you with on-premises control.

You can have a cloud-like experience in dedicated infrastructure, including on-site, bringing elasticity to your infrastructure. You can meet latency and application dependencies with consumption-based solutions for your workloads.

Edge to cloud – what the!?

Edge computing is about processing data locally – ideally where it lives, and cloud computing is about processing data externally in any environment. Edge to cloud brings the cloud to the edge, bridging location and environment gaps.

Edge to cloud platforms like HPE GreenLake facilitate this process, deploying cloud services within the control system and tying them to the edge.

HPE GreenLake lifts the operational burden of cloud deployment and management and the complexity of bringing data to the edge. It wraps all this in enterprise-grade security, helping your enterprise meet governance standards.

Taking an edge-to-cloud approach is key to data-driven decision-making, streamlining how you use data and access resources. Simply put, you can leverage the power of hybrid cloud environments without the complexities.

The good news is adapting to edge-to-cloud is not enormously complex relative to deploying standard edge and cloud infrastructure. You can think of HPE GreenLake as a unification platform – it makes the transition easy.

With data growth exploding and edge computing becoming more critical to operations than ever, tying it to the cloud is a logical next step in your transformation.
