Cyxtera and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Collaborate to Help Customers Accelerate and Simplify their Hybrid IT Strategies
Cyxtera now leveraging HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to support Enterprise Bare Metal solution
Quick Start TCO Workshop program enables joint customers to make better IT investment decisions while sustainably recycling old hardware
August 23, 2023
MIAMI – August 23, 2023 – Cyxtera (OTC: CYXTQ), a global leader in data center colocation, interconnection services, and digital infrastructure, today announced its collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to help customers simplify their IT operations, improve agility, and realize significant cost savings.
As an HPE Partner Ready service provider, Cyxtera is now offering its Enterprise Bare Metal solution supported by the HPE GreenLake platform. With HPE ProLiant servers on Cyxtera Enterprise Bare Metal, customers can benefit from the operational flexibility of the cloud with the performance, control, cost-predictability, and security of dedicated infrastructure running in Cyxtera’s global data centers.
“We’re thrilled to continue working with Cyxtera to deliver agile and flexible approaches that empower our customers to rapidly scale and optimize their hybrid IT infrastructures,” said Brian Falvey, VP North America Sales, HPE GreenLake, HPE. “Cyxtera’s global data center platform, unique Digital Exchange network fabric, and rich ecosystem of interconnected partners are a great complement to HPE GreenLake and our industry-leading private cloud solutions.”
Cyxtera has also launched the Quick Start TCO Workshop, a program that helps organizations assess their current IT infrastructure and conduct a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis for different infrastructure deployment models, in collaboration with HPE. During the Quick Start TCO Workshop, Cyxtera solutions architects use actualized inputs from a customer’s environment and pull real-time pricing to compare IT spend for colocation and bare metal vs. public cloud.
When workshop customers deploy new, more efficient infrastructure with Cyxtera, HPE will buy back its old hardware via HPE Asset Upcycling Services, which enables organizations to recover value from retired hardware securely and sustainably.
“Many organizations are reevaluating their workload placement in the wake of high public cloud costs. According to IDC, 47% of enterprises report overspending on cloud infrastructure1,” said David Keasey, Chief Revenue Officer, Cyxtera. “Our partnership with HPE gives our customers the flexibility, performance, and choice they’re looking for as they build out sustainable hybrid IT infrastructures that power both traditional and high-density AI workloads.”
