HPE GreenLake for Block Storage is the industry’s first storage-as-a-service offering self-service and a 100% availability guarantee for mission-critical environments. Here are the top 10 reasons you should choose HPE GreenLake for Block Storage:

  1. Go faster with self-service agility

HPE GreenLake for Block Storage simplifies on-premises storage with the speed and agility of a cloud operational experience, keeping your underlying infrastructure invisible while shifting operations to be app rather than infrastructure-centric.

Unlike the traditional storage management common to other storage-as-a-service options, with HPE GreenLake for Block Storage, line of business (LOB) and database admins can effortlessly procure and provision storage to accelerate app deployment, freeing up IT resources to work on strategic, higher-value initiatives.

  1. Run any application without compromise

Meet any SLA with mission-critical, business-critical, and general-purpose block storage and the highest levels of availability and performance.

HPE GreenLake for Block Storage provides an unrivalled 100% data availability, guaranteed, for mission-critical applications and an industry-leading 99.9999% uptime for other workloads, compared to the typical 99.99% offered by other storage-as-a-service offerings.

  1. Better performance and better economics with disaggregated, scale-out storage

Scale performance and capacity independently with disaggregated storage, enabling more flexibility, efficiency, and lower costs for evolving workloads.

Start small, scale big and maximise ROI with non-disruptive, data-in-place upgrades without repurchasing existing storage. And eliminate silos and complexity by deploying block or file workloads on a single multi-protocol storage platform with a common cloud experience.

  1. Simplify and accelerate provisioning

Transform from LUN-centric to AI-driven, app-centric storage provisioning. Select the storage tier and workload type, specify the capacity and protection policy, and let AI-driven intelligence automatically recommend the best-suited system across your fleet to optimise your SLAs. No storage expertise required, and no more guesswork.

Slash storage provisioning time from days or weeks to minutes, and empower LOB and app owners with self-service, on-demand provisioning.

  1. Put your storage on autopilot with an AI-managed service

Say goodbye to endless firefighting thanks to industry-leading AI Ops for infrastructure that drives autonomous operations and helps ensure your apps are always on and fast.

Let AI-driven recommendations take the guesswork out of managing data infrastructure and help eliminate time-consuming, frustrating escalations through predictive support automation and direct expert access.

  1. Help ensure the quality of service for mission-critical apps

HPE GreenLake for Block Storage provides an intelligent quality of service (QoS) for your critical workloads. Intelligent QoS allows you to set priorities on a specific volume or application set to help assure performance. If you experience resource contention, you can cap volumes with the lowest priority.

  1. Consume your way

Consume resources your way with a choice of up-front purchase or transparent monthly subscription. A flexible service consumption model enables you to avoid over and under-provisioning concerns, budget constraints, and complex procurement cycles.

Start fast and efficiently with instant, SLA-driven quoting, and rapid ordering. Get the needed storage resources via workload-optimised storage tiers delivered in days.

  1. Manage from anywhere

With global unified management you can manage and protect your global storage environment from a single cloud console. Managing hundreds of systems is as simple as managing one from an intuitive software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based user experience that puts everything you need to manage your fleet of data infrastructure in one place.

  1. Get everything as a service

Modernise your data management with a comprehensive suite of cloud data services and a unified operating experience on the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform.

For example, with HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery, you can experience effortless cloud backup from a single pane of glass while meeting every SLA across clouds through instant restores, rapid recovery on-prem, and cost-effective long-term retention in the cloud.

  1. Accelerate business outcomes

HPE GreenLake for Block Storage empowers you to transform from IT operator to service provider, focusing on accelerating outcomes, not managing infrastructure. Speed time to value with 99% operational time savings via intent-based provisioning.

You can lower risk with 100% availability guaranteed for mission-critical workloads and boost agility with 86% of problems predicted and automatically resolved before you even recognise an issue.
