Global financial services firm updates data center with unique HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Service solution



OnX has been a trusted IT technology partner for the financial services firm for the past decade, providing HPE infrastructure and networking solutions. When their data center in western Europe was approaching a costly refresh, the company’s management team reached out to OnX to discuss options, including the unique HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Service solution.


OnX was diligent in taking the time to understand the company’s increased infrastructure needs and budget, and proposed the HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Service solution. Unique in the industry, GreenLake is a customized SOW-based services agreement allowing HPE-owned and maintained hardware to be installed in the client’s data center, but the company pays only for the amount of infrastructure they use each month. Also, if the financial services firm ever needs to increase capacity, OnX and HPE will process a change order for additional HPE infrastructure — ensuring the company will always have the on-premise equipment they need as business requirements change.


OnX partnered with HPE to deliver an IT consumption solution that met the financial services firm’s strategic business objectives — shifting from a CapEx to an OpEx cost model while addressing budget constraints associated with refreshing their data center. By combining the simplicity, agility, and economics of the HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Solution with the firm’s requirements for security, control, and on-premise IT performance, the company achieved the results they were seeking. With HPE GreenLake in place, this global financial services firm can deploy new business services with speed and efficiency.
