HP and First Data Unveil Configured Server Solutions for VisionPLUS Flex

Attached is a press release of a great CI/pan-HP win at First Data Corporation, a global leader in electronic payment processing. 

On June 4th we announced that HP Converged Infrastructure will be the foundation for First Data's VisionPLUS® Flex solution, which enables financial institutions to cost-effectively process payment portfolios of up to 10 million accounts. 

 

VisionPLUS Flex, along with HP Converged Infrastructure, is an easily installed system running on HP ProLiant servers that is architected to meet the critical performance needs of the payment processing industry, which benefited from beta testing participation by First Data clients, and includes:

  • HP BladeSystem -- for breakthrough economics and advanced insight into the data center by consolidating server, storage, networking and power management into an easily managed unified environment.
  • HP 3PAR StorServ 7000 -- to simplify storage management with effortless, self-configuring provisioning and optimization.
  • HP 5800 Switch Series -- for improved resiliency and performance to ensure business continuity and enhance disaster recovery, while simplifying management with the HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) -- to allow up to nine locally or geographically distributed interconnected switches to be managed as a single entity.
  • HP Virtual Connect Technology -- for up to 50 percent savings compared to traditional Ethernet switches, as well as simplified management and flexible bandwidth allocation.
  • HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) -- to maximize system uptime and server health.
  • HP Data Protector Software -- to reduce network traffic and enhance storage capacity with improved backup efficiency through HP StoreOnce, HP's patented data reduction technology.
  • HP Proactive Care Service -- to avoid potential problems and prevent unplanned downtime with access to advanced technical expertise and end-to-end call ownership, including proactive reports containing data analysis and recommendations.
  • HP Installation and Deployment Services -- factory preconfiguration option for smooth, efficient infrastructure integration into existing environments.

This solution showcases the power of one HP.
