HP Drives New Era for Cloud Computing

HP Drives New Era for Cloud Computing

New solutions make the cloud enterprise grade

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 28, 2011 – HP today announced a suite of new products and services that enable organisations to leverage the power of the cloud while ensuring they meet required levels of security, performance and availability.

Cloud computing is an important and growing platform for Instant-On Enterprises, where everything and everyone is connected. Instant-On Enterprises require IT environments that are flexible, automated and secure, and able to quickly adjust to changing demand.

While cloud computing delivers benefits such as faster deployment of new services, reduction in IT headcount and a pay-as-you-go model, it has traditionally lacked in areas that enterprises need, such as security, availability and ease of integration.

The new HP Hybrid Delivery solutions provide the benefits of enterprise-grade cloud computing, while meeting the specific needs of businesses and governments.

“Cloud computing is going mainstream and HP is leading the way,” said Keith Watson, managing director, Hewlett-Packard New Zealand. “HP has the enterprise experience, breadth of portfolio and global service delivery organisation to lead our clients through this transformation.”

HP Hybrid Delivery cloud solutions: Cloud for the enterprise

HP Enterprise Cloud Services-Compute delivers “private cloud as a service” from HP’s state-of-the-art data centers. Governed by specified policies for service, performance, security and privacy, it provides clients with rapidly deployed, secure computing with scalable IT capacity. Built on HP’s leadership in Converged Infrastructure and the breadth of HP’s software portfolio for automation and management, it delivers all the resources necessary to access a hybrid private cloud.

HP CloudSystem is the most complete, integrated system to build, manage and consume services across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. It combines the strength of HP’s Converged Infrastructure with the established leadership of HP Cloud Service Automation software to deliver unified security, governance and compliance across applications, as well as physical and virtual infrastructure. HP CloudSystem is available in New Zealand from March 2011.

HP CloudSystem also supports HP Cloud Maps, an industry first that provides preconfigured catalogue objects to automatically provision the optimised application and infrastructure resources. HP CloudSystem enables new cloud services to be up and running in minutes.

HP Cloud Discovery Workshop helps businesses and governments develop smart strategies and the optimal path for leveraging the cloud. The one- or two-day workshops have multiple modules that cover a wide range of topics, including business model implications, security and identifying the right services for the cloud. The workshops are led by seasoned HP professionals with experience and expertise in global cloud deployments. The workshop is currently available in New Zealand.

HP Financial Services are available for clients building private cloud deployments who want to minimise capital requirements. HP can combine its cloud offerings with financial offerings from HP Financial Services helping clients maximise their financial goals in parallel with their pursuit of advanced technologies.

More information about HP’s new offerings, including a video from Ann Livermore, is available at www.hp.com/go/cloudcomputing2011.
