HPE has announced that open source leader Red Hat has joined its HPE GreenLake ecosystem, a move it says will help joint customers better run and manage their IT systems.

The pair will work together to combine new service offerings with Red Hat’s open source technologies such as Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, which will be deployed on the GreenLake platform.

Announcing the move at its Discover 2022 event, HPE said the solutions will be engineered and designed to provide complete, open source IT stacks for compute, containers and automation – ultimately addressing the industry need for more agile solutions.

“This extended partnership makes it easy for HPE GreenLake customers to consume and work with Red Hat’s highly regarded open source solutions,” explained Keith White, EVP & GM of HPE GreenLake Cloud Services Commercial Business at HPE.

“This enables our joint customers to focus on accelerating their business transformations, at a lower cost, while solving their most pressing challenges around performance, risk, and speed, without worries about integration, licenses, or product updates.”

HPE GreenLake with Red Hat promises a host of benefits, including more reliable performance across a range of workloads, reduced risk and complexity, as well as lower cost of ownership.

The open source IT stack solutions are designed to allow companies to move and adapt faster to market changes for a faster time to market, while HPE’s comprehensive support covers physical, virtual, and multi-cloud environments.

Stefanie Chiras, senior vice president of Partner Ecosystem Success at Red Hat, said the two companies are “committed to enabling greater customer choice and flexibility” as many businesses look to accelerate their digital transformation.

“Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud portfolio offers a more consistent and scalable foundation for customers to optimise their cloud operations, from the datacenter to the edge,” she said.

“We are pleased to collaborate with HPE to integrate Red Hat technologies with HPE GreenLake platform, further supporting customer choice wherever needed.”
