Allow enterprises to gain agility, reduce risk, maintain control and ensure security of the cloud deployment, says the company
HP has unveiled new Cloud Solutions that the company says advance deployment of private, public and hybrid clouds, enabling enterprises, service providers and governments to capitalise on emerging market opportunities.
Based on HP Converged Infrastructure, HP Cloud Solutions provide the hardware, software, services and programmes that enable service providers, enterprises and governments to rapidly and securely deliver IT as a service.
HP Cloud Solutions and Infrastructure vice president of Marketing Steve Dietch said clients want to understand, plan, build and source for cloud computing in a way that allows them to gain agility, reduce risk, maintain control and ensure security.
"The new offerings are the culmination of HP’s experience in delivering innovative technology solutions, as well as providing the services and skills needed to drive this evolution," Dietch said.
The key areas of client needs, such as building differentiated cloud offerings, consuming cloud services from the public domain, and managing, governing and securing the entire environment are addressed by HP’s new offerings.
New HP CloudSystem integrations with Alcatel-Lucent enable communications services providers to deliver high-value cloud services using carrier-class network and IT.
HP CloudAgile Service Provider Program offers service providers expanded sales reach, an enhanced services portfolio and an accelerated sales cycle through direct access to HP’s global sales force.
HP CloudSystem Matrix 7.0, the core operating environment that powers HP CloudSystem, enables clients to build hybrid clouds with push-button access to externally sourced cloud-based IT resources with the industry’s first out-of-the-box "bursting capability."
This solution also includes automatic, on-demand provisioning of HP 3PAR storage to reduce errors and speed deployment of new services to just minutes.
The comprehensive HP Cloud Protection Program spans people, process, policies and technologies to deliver a comparable level of security for a hybrid cloud as a private internet-enabled IT environment would receive.
New and enhanced HP services that provide a cloud infrastructure as a service to address this need include HP Enterprise Cloud Services that automate distribution of application workloads across multiple servers to improve application performance.
HP Enterprise Cloud Services for SAP Development and Sandbox Solution enable clients to evaluate and prototype functionality of SAP Enterprise Resource Planning software via a virtual private cloud, using a flexible, consumption-based model.
Clients can use HP guidance and training to transform legacy data centres for cloud computing by improving the skills in their organisations.
