Irish airports set to fly with HPE GreenLake

hpeHewlett Packard Enterprise has announced that daa has selected its GreenLake platform that will see it achieve a “major performance and capacity upgrade" to mission critical services.

daa is a global airports and travel retail group with businesses across 16 countries. It is owned by the Irish State and is headquartered at Dublin Airport.

The GreenLake platform will run from daa’s two data centres and manage passenger and baggage handling, security systems, business intelligence, and retail operations for Dublin and Cork airports. Until now, daa had been running these critical services on its estate of HPE servers, which were reaching end of life. Moving to GreenLake requires daa to make no upfront investments and switch to a pay-as-you-go model.

Infrastructure costs have of course come to the fore as passenger numbers plummeted during the pandemic. Removing the need for a significant capital investment took away what daa describes as a “headache”. On top of saving costs and changing the financial model, there is now ‘room to grow’ in terms of infrastructure capacity - and to do so rapidly.

Last month, HPE announced its $2bn contract with the National Security Agency in the US, further evidence that GreenLake is building in momentum.
