Greenlake Management Services (GMS)

Hewlett Packard Enterprise set a target  to have their entire portfolio -as-a-service by 2022.  As this continues to move forward for geographies such as the USA and Europe, Caribbean and Central America have yet to benefit from these financial models for hardware pay per use, better known as consumption model. Rest assured that Westham is working hard to bring a pure Greenlake hardware consumption model to you, but for now we are only able to provide a similar model (“Blue Lake”) via financial institutions for very select channels, on a project-to-project basis.

HPE GMS is a suite of services that helps your customers manage operate and optimize their IT environments.  Services can be tailored, from operating an entire datacenter to managing specific environments within it.  I will go more in depth shortly as to what exactly GMS is and how you can offer it to your customers in a way that it compliments and expands your current services offering.

What is Greenlake Management Services?

In a nutshell, GMS is the combination of the best parts of IT Out-tasking and Outsourcing.

IT out-tasking allows businesses to pass specific IT operations to another organization. The company providing the out-tasking, has specific expertise, with tool and best practices, and performing operations duties only.  They have no end-to-end responsibility, and the customer has control over their environment.  No people or assets to transfer.

Outsourcing transfers the management and execution of the entire IT function to an external provider. In this case the company providing the services has end-to-end responsibility.  From the strategy to the operations.  The business outcomes are guaranteed.

GMS can provide many levels of services.

  • You or your customer maintains control of the strategy.
  • Take advantage of the platform, people and processes of HPE's centers of operation.
  • Take advantage of letting HPE take care of routine IT tasks such as: Monitoring, Operations, IT and app administration.
  • Take advantage of recommendations and optimization provided for you.
