After accelerating its revenue growth last quarter, this represented sustained growth for the company as revenues improved for all business segments except HPE's venerable compute business in the quarter. During the quarter, the company generated non-GAAP operating income of $673 million, which was up 25% YoY but down 2% sequentially as some costs including the pre-purchase of inventory to future proof the business from further supply chain constraints were borne by the business. And of course, HPE continues to work toward making all its offerings available via the company's GreenLake-as-a-service model by 2022.
