CASE STUDY: State Agency Slashes Data Storage Costs without Compromising Performance or Security

e360’s professional services offerings, combined with HPE GreenLake puts the agency on track to save as much as $10 million

A state government agency that runs a consolidated data center serving many other government entities faced ever-increasing costs and a host of technical challenges with its existing file and block storage infrastructure. These challenges included a shortage of internal staffing resources, and a lack of equipment, or the budget required to handle IT internally.

Seeking a solution to replace its costly legacy hardware, the agency wanted to deliver cloud-like storage-as-a-service to these entities while controlling costs—its most important objective—and turned to e360 for assistance in identifying the right solution. Together, e360 and HPE demonstrated that the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform was a viable alternative to renewing its existing hardware contract, offering a fully-integrated solution.

Simplicity, agility and scale drive costs down

Public clouds typically charge data ingress and egress fees. As an on-premises solution, HPE GreenLake lowers costs as the agency’s needs grow, with a tiered declining subscription model that delivers exceptional economies of scale. Further, the platform provides the performance and availability required for the agency to effectively deliver its services.

The agency expects to save as much as $10 million compared to its previous solution at its current usage rate. And it will be able to achieve this all without sacrificing reliability or performance.

On-premises cloud solution meets security and compliance mandates

For public sector agencies, compliance with regulations demands that they know where their data is stored at all times. Because HPE GreenLake is on-premises—unlike public clouds—the agency has that requirement locked down. And the agency no longer needs to worry about the issues surrounding public clouds’ shared responsibility model, which puts managing, securing, and restoring data squarely on the customer.
