"No enterprise has a one size fits all approach to cloud – every customer wants solutions that help them drive their business faster and cut costs across their full spectrum of applications," said HPE APJ vice-president and general manager of hybrid IT, Raj Thakur.
"Organisations require their own right mix of traditional IT, private, managed and public clouds and the flexibility to support applications spanning different technologies, architectures and delivery models.
"The HPE Helion portfolio gives customers a simple, powerful set of options, offering the breadth and coverage they need."
