Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced that Fastweb S.p.A, a telecom operator in Italy, has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to modernize its Fastcloud Business Unit to accelerate new service deployment and improve agility.

The platform will look to enhance governance, security and operations with improved visibility of utilization and costs for the firm.

Fastweb has 3.1 million customers on fixed networks and three million on mobile networks. Its business unit, Fastcloud, provides cloud solutions for enterprises and government departments ranging from infrastructure as a service, SaaS, AI, big data analytics and IoT.

The Fastcloud Business Unit needed a modern technology environment to enable faster service deployments for its cloud service portfolio.

HPE delivered its GreenLake services in collaboration with Npo Sistemi, an Italian company specializing in IT solutions and services. According to HPE, customers transitioning to GreenLake from traditional CapEx models can achieve a greater than 30 percent reduction in energy costs and total cost of ownership over five years.

Mauro Colombo, director, technology and innovation, Italy at HPE, said: “We are proud that Fastweb has chosen HPE GreenLake as their strategic partner for their cloud journey.

“HPE GreenLake is a unique platform that enables customers to consume IT resources as a service across their entire infrastructure – from edge to cloud – with consistent performance, governance and compliance. This way, Fastweb can focus on added value services for their customers while we provide IT cloud services.”

Domenico Impelliccieri, Fastcloud director, Fastweb, said: “HPE GreenLake provides a platform that allows us to deliver innovative cloud services to our customers that can help them grow their businesses and become more competitive in their markets.

“With this solution, we gain better insights into capacity utilization and energy consumption, so we can prevent overprovisioning and better manage our costs and carbon footprint which is critical for our business.”
