Get a deep dive on HPE GreenLake Lighthouse on this podcast


Back in mid-June at Discover, part of our big news was HPE GreenLake Lighthouse. I got an early look at slides and hosted a couple of bloggers who got to hear about it a few days before Discover. I understood the basics but I wanted to better understand it. I reached out to a couple of guys who did some internal webinars on the topic and got them on my podcast. In this blog article, I'll share that podcast looking at HPE GreenLake Lighthouse. 

In this podcast, I have two HPE GreenLake Lighthouse experts to help explain it and how it fits with HPE GreenLake. IHPE GreenLake news podcast.png was joined by Chris Eidler and John Gromala, both from the Lighthouse team. It's clear to me that HPE has a huge lead over other infrastructure vendors (yes, looking at you Dell Apex) and what we're doing with HPE GreenLake Lighthouse is a strong proof-point of that.

Get more from me on HPE GreenLake

If you have been following me on social media and blogs here on, you probably know me as a storage guy. Over the last couple of years, I've spread my wings a bit into other areas. One of those that I've focused on a lot is HPE GreenLake. Hearing our CEO Antonio Neri say that HPE will offer everything we do as a service by 2022 was a clear sign that I needed to put more effort into understanding HPE GreenLake and creating content to help you understand it more too. 

My preferred method of making sense of what we do at HPE are my Chalk Talks. And I've done four HPE GreenLake Chalk Talks to date. I think these are really good 5 minute videos that will help you better understand each topic. I'm sure I'll have another one some time in the near future that will incorporate HPE GreenLake Lighthouse. But for now, here are the ones you can watch: 

I've also put them in a playlist and when I add more HPE GreenLake Chalk Talks to my list, you'll find them here.
