HPE GreenLake began as an as-a-service program that offered customers the option to purchase IT products as services and capital expenses. Like other storage-as-a-service (STaaS) programs that sprung up in the past few years, HPE has broadened the scope of GreenLake. HPE now positions GreenLake Storage as providing a complete cloud-like experience, with storage provisioned and managed through the cloud even if the products sit on-prem and are paid for in a traditional capex way.
HPE’s two main GreenLake storage products – HPE GreenLake for Block Storage and HPE GreenLake for File Storage – that launched in 2023 are initially available as up-front capex purchases. HPE plans to eventually add opex options, but today customers purchase an HPE Alletra Storage MP system up front and buy subscriptions for the block and file storage. GreenLake for Block and File Storage subscriptions are available per TB as 1-year, 3- year and 5-year SaaS licenses. Customers are billed monthly.
