HOUSTON — The safety and compliance firm J. J. Keller & Associates is working with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to power its cloud transformation.
J. J. Keller selected HPE’s scalable GreenLake cloud services, according to HPE last month.
The firm serves the construction, industrial, and trucking markets in North America.
The cloud services by HPE are intended to support the J.J. Keller’s growing demands for data processing and storage across various business applications that run on site or across remote locations. They are set up to enable the firm to scale its business across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

J. J. Keller needed a hybrid cloud solution with advanced, scalable technologies, while staying “nimble.”
The firm worked with HPE to replace its aging infrastructure and adopt the latest compute and storage solutions from HPE as cloud services.
The transition consolidated workflows that ran on multiple platforms, reducing the number of platforms from six to two. These workflows include various applications across VMware, Veeam, Microsoft SQL, Red Hat, SUSE, SAP, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). They are now supported on HPE ProLiant servers, HPE Primera for intelligent storage, and HPE Apollo 4000 systems for data analytics and archival needs.
J. J. Keller uses HPE GreenLake Central, a centralized portal for managing and optimizing IT environments and gaining insights, to monitor workloads, costs, and compliance.
The firm is using HPE’s GreenLake offerings under usage-based pricing.
The digital transformation changes have helped J. J. Keller grow multiple customer-facing businesses over the past year, including doubling its managed services and consulting offerings, according to HPE.

New Era Technology, a reseller partner of HPE, worked with J. J. Keller to understand its needs and explore offerings to reach its IT and business goals.
New Era Technology provided extensive consulting and recommended the HPE GreenLake solution.
“We look forward to continue partnering with J. J. Keller to help its business expand, accelerate innovation, and deliver new solutions to safely and efficiently support growing industry needs,” said Keith White, SVP and GM of HPE GreenLake Cloud Services.
Dana Gilman, CFO of J. J. Keller, said that as the firm’s data storage and processing needs have grown, “older on-premises hardware hasn’t scaled to meet our customers’ demands.”
Gilman said HPE GreenLake offers the firm “a superb collection of hybrid solutions to fuel the daily growth we’re already seeing, while controlling costs as we continue through our next stages of expansion.”
