Hewlett Packard Enterprise is rolling out a preview of a new sustainability dashboard on the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform as well as introducing a comprehensive portfolio of sustainability services.
The offerings, which span technology, services, financing, and asset upcycling programs, are designed to help organizations reduce the carbon footprint associated with their IT estates.
“Achieving sustainability targets in a hybrid IT environment can be complex and daunting,” said Pradeep Kumar, senior vice president and general manager, HPE Services. “HPE breaks down this complexity with technologies and services that enable organizations to advance from strategy and design to operations and positive impact. Our unique, comprehensive approach helps customers transform sustainability initiatives from incremental pockets of activity to a holistic approach spanning every IT domain.”
To help organizations monitor, observe, and reduce their energy consumption within their IT estate, HPE will soon offer a new sustainability dashboard on the HPE GreenLake platform that delivers key insights on IT energy consumption, carbon emissions, and electricity costs. The dashboard will leverage advanced analytics from the HPE portfolio across compute, storage, and networking to improve overall sustainability performance.
New technology from OpsRamp, which HPE acquired in May 2023, will provide additional sustainable IT capabilities to the dashboard by delivering a unified approach to manage multi-vendor infrastructure and application resources in hybrid and multi-cloud IT environments.
The sustainability dashboard, which is currently being previewed with select clients, will help move organizations from the ideation and design stages of sustainable modernization into operations.
To support organizations on their transformation journey, HPE delivers a unique workload-in approach, utilizing an array of tools and processes, to address environmental and sustainability goals and efficiently plan for modernization.
The enhanced sustainability services include two new capabilities that bridge technology and data center facility solutions to offer an analysis of an organization’s overall consumption.
- New workshops that explore a combined and sustainable approach to IT, workloads, and data centers are now available to customers seeking to begin their journey.
- New sustainability baselining services provide a clear picture of energy usage and emissions within their IT estate by considering commonly accepted accounting and reporting principles.
Customers also now have access to the newly enhanced HPE Right Mix Advisor—a process used to identify application modernization and hosting requirements.
Its new capabilities allow HPE to build an analysis of workload power consumption and calculate carbon footprint, collectively, or at the application level. This process is paired with the redesigned HPE Edge-to-Cloud Adoption Framework to enable support of sustainable IT goals in an organization’s operating model.
Additional new capabilities include services and solutions to gain visibility, control, and management capabilities of an organization’s IT and data center carbon footprint.
- New operational services that provide customers with a continuum of sustainability features including access to dedicated experts, asset upcycling services, customized Circular Economy Reports, and access to additional certifications.
- Education is an additional layer of operational coverage and is supported with the refreshed HPE Digital Learner—an online learning subscription service that now includes sustainable upskilling for IT and data center facility employees. Customers can now offer their employees access to the ITIL 4 certificate: Sustainability in Digital and IT and the EPI Certified Data Center Environmental Sustainability Specialist (CDESS) certifications directly from HPE.
