HPE has announced that Swedish technology consultancy and IT solutions provider, B2B IT-Partner, has chosen the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform and HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise to support its customers’ next-gen AI ambitions.
Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, B2B IT-Partner caters to small and medium-sized businesses across Europe. Founded in 2004, it operates seven business units including infrastructure, cloud, product supply, logistics, license, care-free IT and network.
Leveraging HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform and the HPE Ezmeral software portfolio, B2B IT-Partner is transforming its internal infrastructure and streamlining its service offerings, adopting cloud-native capabilities on-premises and accelerating innovation across use cases such as AI/ML, analytics, application modernization and IoT.
With these technologies, B2B IT-Partner can support demands from its customers for data-driven innovation such as AI development and deployment, simplify their as-a-service Kubernetes management, optimize their resource utilization and enhance their security and compliance with enterprise-grade security.
HPE Ezmeral can help the company gain a competitive edge and deliver value to customers by offering a platform that enables customers to build, modernize, deploy, monitor and manage applications across environments efficiently.
Bo Holmquist, solution architect, B2B IT-Partner, said: “The HPE GreenLake platform offers an excellent value proposition to customers who want the benefits of the cloud but are wary of its limitations.
“Aside from the cost benefits, the HPE GreenLake platform is fully compliant with GDPR because customer data remains on-prem. Our customers no longer have to worry about regulatory compliance, hardware maintenance, capacity planning or unexpected downtime.”
Peter Werdenhoff, channel manager, HPE Sweden, said: “The combination of HPE GreenLake and HPE Ezmeral creates the perfect infrastructure solution for B2B IT-Partner.
“The HPE GreenLake platform provides a consumption-based model and offers the same functionality as the cloud for almost half the price – without locking customers into a five-year purchase.”
