Enabling an open and seamless cloud experience
Cloud is not a destination; it’s an experience.
For years, HPE has stood by our belief that we are moving toward a hybrid world. Now, nearly everyone is adopting a similar vision - including the same public cloud vendors that claimed private clouds would eventually become a thing of the past. In fact, a recent IDC study predicted that across the globe, expenditure on public cloud services and infrastructure is set to double to nearly $500 billion by 2023 as countries’ adoption of public cloud services continue to grow. This is especially true in Asia, where cloud adoption is accelerating due to the region’s population and economic growth, and high mobile connectivity. HPE believe that cloud experience should be open and seamless across all clouds.
Whether on-premise, off-premise, in the cloud or at the edge, today’s IT customers are hungry for choices that make their lives simpler and their work much more efficient. Increasingly, CIOs and IT teams are realizing there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and they need flexibility and customization more than ever before. Southeast Asia is also a hotbed for cloud growth, with economic powerhouses like Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand making investments in cloud computing among public and private sectors. This is especially so in Singapore, where almost two-thirds of companies have moved more than half their workloads to the cloud.
When public cloud entered the domain, it was the darling among IT professionals as it boasted minimal upfront hardware costs. The public cloud became the de facto choice for IT groups that needed to act fast to capitalize on the explosive growth of enterprise data. As time passed, data volumes grew and other storage options emerged, some IT decision makers identified a horizon beyond public cloud and began exploring options that were tailor made and provided added scalability.
Nevertheless, public cloud has helped usher in an attractive payment model – pay-as-you go consumption. It’s noticed this through the growth of HPE GreenLake, the consumption based cloud model. This business model is poised to expand industry-wide.
