The combination of these two solutions on Digital Realty’s global platform creates an ideal meeting place for enterprises to bring their data together and consume infrastructure on demand, helping to unlock trapped value and drive innovation.
Digital Realty has also announced its presence at HPE Discover, HPE’s flagship edge-to-cloud conference, following the successful unveiling of its Data Hub featuring HPE GreenLake offer. With Data Hub, customers are able to rapidly deploy critical HPE GreenLake infrastructure at centers of data exchange globally on PlatformDIGITAL, helping to address the challenges associated with Data Gravity. Customers also gain access to a platform of connected data communities that includes 1,500+ enterprises, 1,200+ network service providers, and 1,100+ cloud and IT providers.
By 2025, it’s estimated that 463 exabytes of data will be created each day globally as a result of things like the explosion of IoT-connected devices (forecast to reach 14.4 billion by the end of 20223). As the volume of data continues to grow and the Data Gravity effect intensifies, companies around the world are being forced to adapt their IT architecture in favor of a more decentralized model that helps to solve global coverage, control, capacity, and connectivity needs.
The powerful and synergistic combination of HPE’s GreenLake edge-to-cloud service and Digital Realty’s vast colocation footprint – accessible through PlatformDIGITAL – delivers a public cloud-like experience in a secure, compliant, and sustainable environment. Not only will companies be able to simplify infrastructure delivery, cut costs and eliminate complexity by deploying on a single global platform, they’ll also benefit from 100% clean energy usage across PlatfromDIGITAL’s US and European portfolios; as well as the flexibility of deploying almost anywhere in the world, all while maintaining strict global compliance standards.
“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,” comments Tony Bishop, SVP, Enterprise, Platform & Solutions, Digital Realty.
“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,” comments Vincent in ‘t Veld, SVP, Service Providers and Market Strategy, 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,” says Keith White, Executive Vice President and General Manager, GreenLake.
