HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Pricing and License Cost

GregJohnson
Systems Engineering Manager at Prisma Health
Our first year costs were approximately $1.2 million instead of spending five to six million dollars. We have had GreenLake two year now, and Epic says, "By the way, by April of 2020 you will have to replace that hardware again." In six years, that would have been three major purchases. So, GreenLake has given us the ability to say, "New technology, go ahead and roll it in." You pay for it as you go. It's a small cost per month compared to that one-time purchase. The big thing is if you get your one-time purchase wrong, then you are buying a lot more. With GreenLake, if we miss estimate (which with all the planning, you usually don't), we sign a piece of paper, and then they send more equipment in. If you're used to buying HPE servers, it's less expensive than that. I don't really compare competitor servers because HPE has never given me any reason to look otherwise. However, if you get good pricing on HPE servers, you get better pricing on GreenLake. View full review »

If you are looking to turn some of your capital expense into operational expense, this allows you to do it. It is a good idea. View full review »

The pricing is based on the plateaus of usage. The more you use the more you pay but within ranges. We believe it has saved the organization money. As far as the exact amount, I'm not sure. I would say probably about 20% on storage costs. View full review »

It has affected the administrative aspect of our IT operations a lot, because there is financial flexibility that we have in the HPE Flexible Capacity contract. View full review »
