Digital Realty and HPE GreenLake Partner to Launch Data Hub

Cloud, data center, and colocation platform provider, Digital Realty, has announced the launch of Data Hub, a new colocation offering on PlatformDIGITAL® which features HPE GreenLake, HPE’s edge-to-cloud software platform that delivers infrastructure as-a-service.

PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realty’s data center platform, will now allow customers to deploy HPE GreenLake infrastructure at centers of data exchange across Digital Realty global footprints through the new Data Hub.

“We’re living in a world that’s driven by data. And as it continues to explode in volume, velocity and value, enterprises are racing to implement hybrid IT models to address the performance of their data and unlock trapped value, all while ensuring stringent compliance standards in a constantly evolving regulatory environment,” said Tony Bishop, SVP, Enterprise, Platform & Solutions, Digital Realty.

“The partnership we’ve built with Digital Realty is complementary in every way. Digital Realty’s deep-rooted heritage in providing top-shelf colocation services has allowed us to focus solely on innovating and delivering an edge-to-cloud solution to our customers wherever, whenever they want it. We’re able to work alongside Digital Realty in a mutually beneficial manner and provide a truly integrated experience to our customers, helping to speed up time to value and innovation,” said Keith White, Executive Vice President and General Manager, GreenLake.

The collaboration between HPE’s edge-to-cloud service and Digital Realty’s colocation footprint is envisioned to deliver a public cloud-like experience in a secure, compliant, and sustainable environment.  This partnership is also expected to enable customers gain access to a platform of connected data communities that includes over 1,200 network service providers, and 1,100+ cloud and IT providers.

“The symbiotic relationship we have with HPE and the addition of its GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform capabilities onto PlatformDIGITAL® strengthens the value of our partner ecosystem, enabling enterprises to accelerate digital transformation journeys and eliminate complexity in an increasingly data-centric world,” said Vincent in ‘t Veld, SVP, Service Providers and Market Strategy, Digital Realty.
