BMW Group relies on Greenlake
The BMW Group chose the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to streamline and unify their data management across global locations and the cloud. HPE will provide cloud services for big data, backup, recovery and compliant archiving to the world’s leading premium automotive and motorcycle manufacturer. This enables the BMW Group to manage globally distributed databases via a single platform with a consistent cloud experience.
“Data is becoming a key enabler of competitive advantage in the automotive industry, while at the same time the complexity of data management is increasing as data becomes more distributed, voluminous, diverse and fast-moving,” said Antonio Neri, CEO and President of HPE. “We look forward to working with the BMW Group to meet this challenge by providing a unified cloud experience for managing any data, anywhere. On this basis, the value of the data can be fully exploited.”
First, HPE GreenLake will facilitate the analysis of data collected from electric test vehicles worldwide to accelerate their time-to-market. This data – such as battery temperature, power loss or vehicle speed – is managed via the HPE Ezmeral analytics and data lakehouse platform. This gives the BMW Group’s data scientists and engineers universal and direct access to the data, regardless of its storage. HPE Ezmeral also offers a global catalogue of analytics tools and data processes for analysis and simulation. The solution is delivered as a service via the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform.
Via the edge-to-cloud platform HPE GreenLake, the BMW Group will also use Veritas and Cohesity in combination with HPE Store Once for data backup and recovery and solutions from eternity based on HPE Primera for legally compliant archiving.
Finally, HPE today announced a new global agreement with Digital Realty, the world’s largest cloud and carrier-neutral data centre provider, colocation and interconnection solutions. Digital Realty enables customers to run any HPE GreenLake service in Digital Realty’s 285+ data centres across six continents, including locations in 50 major cities. Customers benefit from a seamless process with a single contract, one invoice and integrated service management.
