Enjoy on-prem benefits with a public cloud experience

By Richard Arneson

If you listen closely, you can practically hear IT professionals the world over asking themselves the same question―“If I utilize the public cloud, how can I maintain control and enjoy the security I get from on-premises infrastructures?” And if that question does indeed steer them away from cloud services, they’re left with the ongoing, uneasy feeling that comes from overprovisioning capacity and long-awaited circuit upgrades.

HPE has the answer to this IT conundrum

HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity is a hybrid cloud solution that provides customers with a public cloud experience and the peace of mind that can come with on-premises deployments. Like cloud services, HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity is a pay-as-you-go solution that offers capacity on-demand and quickly scales to meet growth needs, but without the (long) wait times associated with circuit provisioning.
And with HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity, network management is greatly simplified, as customers can manage all cloud resources in the environment of their choosing.
