The platform continues to win back-to-back deals. Recently, in September, the leading French healthcare software provider, Maincare, adopted HPE GreenLake to power its highly secure cloud offering, Maincare Hosting Services.
In August, Steel Authority of India Limited (“SAIL”), India’s largest steel producer, selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform for its Bokaro Steel Plant to modernize its critical SAP environment, accelerate its digital transformation agenda and reduce its environmental footprint.
In July, one of the leading cloud service providers in France, AntemetA, selected HPE GreenLake for Disaster Recovery, a new cloud-native data solution that protects data from the edge to the cloud. AntemetA chose GreenLake to build a manageable, flexible and highly secure private hosting infrastructure to support strategic workloads and drive new business growth.
Nonetheless, HPE’s near-term growth prospects look gloomy as organizations are withholding investments in big and expensive technology products due to global economic slowdown concerns. Also, supply-chain constraints are likely to hurt its growth prospects in the near term.
