Keith White, one of Microsoft’s top cloud executives, will now be leading HPE’s GreenLake business. As general manager and senior vice president, White will be responsible for leading the go-to-market, field sales, strategy and ecosystem development efforts for Greenlake.
A Microsoft veteran for more than 20 years, White most recently served as vice president of the intelligent cloud, worldwide commercial business at Microsoft.
For the uninitiated, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recently launched HPE GreenLake Central. The advanced software platform is said to provide customers with a consistent cloud experience for all their applications and data, through an operational console that runs, manages and optimizes their entire hybrid IT estate.
Available as a beta, HPE GreenLake Central will be generally available to HPE GreenLake clients by the end of HPE Q1 2020.
“As we transform to become the premier edge-to-cloud platform-as-a-Service company, Keith’s role is fundamental to ensuring HPE continues to deliver a seamless cloud experience for our customers’ and partners’ workloads, at the edge, across all of their clouds, and in the data center,” Phil Davis, president of hybrid IT at HPE, said in a blog post.
