HP Powers Move to Cloud for Enterprises and Service Providers
HP announced new Cloud Solutions that advance deployment of private, public and hybrid clouds, enabling enterprises, service providers and governments to capitalize on emerging market opportunities. With thousands of successful cloud deployments, HP has helped clients get the best of a hybrid delivery approach without the complexity. By incorporating both in-house and externally sourced IT services, clients can pick the right method of delivery to effectively meet time-to-market, availability and cost requirements. Yet, security concerns and a lack of internal skills continue to challenge organizations’ evolution to the cloud. Service providers also recognize that a hybrid delivery approach requires new cloud business models that provide consumption and brokerage of technology for their customers in multiple ways. As a result, they need a technology partner that can help them capture this market opportunity. HP Cloud Solutions, based on HP Converged Infrastructure, provide the hardware, software, services and programs that enable service providers, enterprises and governments to rapidly and securely deliver IT as a service. “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,” said Steve Dietch, vice president, Marketing, Cloud Solutions and Infrastructure, HP. “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.” HP’s new offerings address the key areas of client needs – building differentiated cloud offerings, consuming cloud services from the public domain, and managing, governing and securing the entire environment.
