A new style of IT is emerging. Cloud computing is fundamentally changing the way people live and work. And just like client/server did, the changes will significantly impact Information technology – people, processes and technology.
Enterprises have been steadily embracing private and managed cloud environments and are increasingly finding use cases for the public cloud. We are past the point of the cloud being limited to shadow IT and startups.
HP recognizes the significance of cloud for business and is committed to helping you on your cloud journey. To help reduce risk, improve success and simplify your cloud journey experience, HP is providing an exclusive opportunity. The HP Converged Cloud Accelerator Pack is available for a limited time, exclusively to participants who attend HP Discover 2012 in Frankfurt.
If you are at VMworld 2012 today or just like to keep an eye open for new solutions supporting the cloud, here is summary of a new set off offerings from the HP’s Converged Cloud portfolio. These new solutions are mostly focused on VMware, providing users with solutions to easily transform traditional virtualization deployments into private and hybrid cloud environments with less risk and complexity.
I think VMworld is one of the top "must attend" technology shows in the US. I remember attending about 4 years ago and started to see the promise of cloud computing creeping into several of the keynotes at the show. Now, only 4 years later, the cloud is well entrenched within a lot of businesses and with many more companies looking to make the transition. This can be a very challenging chasm to cross and so ensuring you have the right set of plans suited to your business is key.
Business’ are now demanding a lot from their clouds. They want a solution that doesn't lock them into single vendors or single delivery models. For example, they want the flexibility to be able to develop applications in the public cloud and bring them back into private clouds when the applications are in full production. They also want the flexibility to be able to burst applications and workloads to public or hybrid clouds during peak transaction times.
On June 5, HP announced the release of CloudSystem Matrix 7.1 including Matrix OE 7.1. Starting with version 7.0, released earlier this year, Matrix OE could burst to Savvis as a service provider. Matrix OE 7.1 adds HP Cloud Services (OpenStack-based) and Amazon EC2 as service providers. But what is the value of bursting, and how does Matrix OE 7.1 provide value in a hybrid environment?
HP recently announced the Converged Cloud strategy and common architecture, based on open standards and multi-vendor, heterogeneous software and hardware support. Learn the core technologies that will power, store and connect tomorrow’s hybrid clouds in our Master the Cloud series of sessions at HP Discover, as well as learn how to create the business case, roadmap and to avoid security risks across private, public or hybrid clouds.
