Ireland’s largest cloud service provider, eir evo, has chosen HPE’s GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to modernise its Digital Planet private cloud offering.

The company will leverage the full range of HPE GreenLake cloud services to meet the increasing demand for its platform, accelerate deployment of new services, and improve the overall customer experience.

One of two HPE Platinum Partners in Ireland, the managed services provider has operations and data centres in Dublin, as well as locations in the UK and US, and partners with a range of tech businesses such as HPE, Microsoft, Cisco, Dell, Red Hat, and more.

The firm’s portfolio of services helps customers leverage new technologies across cloud, cyber security, networking, infrastructure, and connectivity.

Martin Wells, managing director at eir evo, said the company found HPE GreenLake to be the “optimal fit” to futureproof Digital Planet.

“In recent years sustainability has come into sharp focus for us and our customers,” he explained. “A key advantage is the modern cloud experience of HPE GreenLake that delivers service flexibility and choice, and the pay-per-use as a service model.

“These features help us manage costs and carbon footprint as they prevent overprovisioning and provide insights into energy consumption, which, in times of soaring energy costs and the global climate crisis, is critical.”

Eir evo’s Digital Planet platform is designed to provide secure and compliant enterprise-class cloud hosting and managed IT services, enabling businesses to build their own bespoke cloud solution.

The offering provides multi-tenant or dedicated compute, storage, monitoring, network, as well as backup and disaster recovery protection, built to specific workload requirements.

As the platform’s customer base continues to grow, the firm says its system upgrade to HPE GreenLake will facilitate the increase in workload and data, as well as performance growth.

The addition will also enable eir evo’s teams to implement changes faster, while ensuring compliance with regulations such as the GDPR. That’s thanks to HPE GreenLake’s zero trust-enabled architecture, which provides embedded security technologies and verifies the integrity of data infrastructures.

Eir evo will combine these capabilities with HPE Zerto, the tech giant’s solution for journal-based continuous data protection and recovery, to enable high-end security orchestration across its cloud services - with minimum data loss and downtime for Digital Planet.

“It is terrific to see one of our leading HPE partners include HPE GreenLake and deploy it in their own private cloud environment at the same time,” said Ray McGann, Ireland managing director at HPE. “With this modernisation, eir evo will have a highly flexible cloud platform that enables them to scale as they grow.

“This, together with a fixed pricing model, will allow the Digital Planet team to match their costs to revenue, providing improved predictability, visibility, and control, while investing more in the continued development of new solutions and services for their customers.”
