HPE Discover 2020: GreenLake Cloud Services Will Reduce Exorbitant Egress Costs – CEO
As most events all over the world have been forced to cancel or go virtual due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, HPE took its Discover Experience event completely online this year. Despite the inundating circumstances surrounding business, HPE stayed true to a commitment of giving back by donating $10 per participant at the event.
The company had in April 2020 announced that it was taking the event virtual due to obvious circumstances.
“To ensure the health and safety of our team members, customers and partners, HPE will convert HPE Discover 2020 into a virtual event,” HPE said in a statement.
The event proved to be an immersive, interactive platform with live and on-demand content as promised. HPE’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Antonio Neri tested positive for COVID-19. However, he kicked off the event with a key-note from home whilst in isolation.
One of the key points of the president’s keynote to attendees at HPE Discover Virtual attendees 2020 is that HPE GreenLake Cloud Services was reducing the exorbitant egress costs and providing the flexibility for users to move enterprise applications.

Neri says the problem with the public cloud providers is; “they are not open and they don’t enable movement between other cloud platforms”.
He insisted that HPE is doing things differently. “With our new HPE GreenLake Cloud Services, you don’t have data egress charges ever. With the public cloud, users can pay 2X the cost of storing data just to get it back. More and more of you have shared how inflexible your public costs really are,” he said.
HPE is bringing the GreenLake Cloud experience to HPE.com. There, customers can price and try various services. They can choose from disaster recovery/backup to private cloud and container as a service. Then they can buy the product from an HPE partner.
With that arrangement, HPE will be empowering developers, data scientists, and businesses with its simplicity. The company is also offering an “elastic and pay-per-use” service that fits into the customers’ budgets.
With HPE GreenLake and container services, there’s also the freedom to move the workloads and data to any public cloud of the customer’s choice using existing licenses. This means the customer also does not have to bother about buying new licenses whilst moving from HPE GreenLake Cloud Services.
