Public Cloud or On-Premises? Get the Best of Both Worlds and Lower TCO with HPE GreenLake with Cohesity

By Nikitha Omkar • April 14, 2020

We are living and working in unprecedented times and ways that are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The operating environment for organizations and their IT teams has dramatically changed, with leaders looking to lower their expenses while running critical IT functions remotely from home. Simplicity and total cost of ownership (TCO) is top-of-mind as enterprise IT leaders are expected to do more with less, particularly when it comes to the management of their most important digital asset—data. 

For some, cloud-based solutions can be the answer to streamlining enterprise data management, providing greater flexibility, speed, and agility. But, if not managed carefully, this may result in pricey cloud bills that give IT executives sticker shock. Beyond that, enterprises must also consider security and compliance of data not being housed in your own data center. 

An alternative to cloud is keeping all your data and apps on-premises. While boosting privacy and control, data sovereignty, visibility, and security, this approach also has shortcomings. The skilled resources and time needed to efficiently manage and protect data center infrastructure can cause a strain on your IT teams, and force you and your staff to focus on day-to-day routine tasks involved in keeping the lights on. 

Should your enterprise have to choose between flexibility and cost? Or agility and control? We don’t think so. That’s why Cohesity and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) are excited to announce that Cohesity is now available through the HPE GreenLake as-a-service consumption model.
