HP speeds and simplifies virtual infrastructure deployments

29 Aug 2011 Las Vegas - HP has launched HP VirtualSystem for VMware, a highly optimized, turnkey solution that gives organisations a virtualized infrastructure that speeds implementation and provides a foundation for Cloud computing.

As virtualization has gained adoption, multitier network architectures, virtual sprawl, inflexible storage, unpredictable workloads and security concerns have increased complexity and limited broad deployment. To help midsize to large organisations address these challenges, HP VirtualSystem for VMware includes virtualized HP Networking solutions, HP Converged Storage, HP BladeSystem servers, HP Insight software with on-site installation services.

Built on HP Converged Infrastructure, HP VirtualSystem features architectural innovations and services that help eliminate virtualization complexity, consolidate IT infrastructure and improve performance, enabling clients to:

  • Accelerate virtual machine mobility by up to 40 percent while doubling throughput and reducing network recovery time by more than 500 times with the new HP FlexFabric virtualized networking solution;
  • Cut capacity requirements by 50 percent, double virtual machine density and speed deployment with HP LeftHand and HP 3PAR Storage Systems;
  • Improve virtual server operations with HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter Server, which alerts IT administrators and allows for remote troubleshooting and management;
  • Align virtualization strategy and investments to business goals with consulting, planning, pre-integration, deployment and support services from HP Technology Services and HP ServiceONE partners.

“Virtualization has become mainstream for clients, but there are obstacles to broad deployment", stated Paul Miller, vice president, Systems and Solutions, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, HP. "With HP VirtualSystem for VMware, clients can simplify and scale their virtualization deployments to provide a clear path to the Cloud."

"Companies need solutions that enable them to move from siloed stacks of infrastructure to pools of technology resources that can be shared and delivered as application services in real time", stated Gary Green, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. "HP VirtualSystem for VMware helps customers streamline their virtualization projects today and transition to Cloud computing in the future."

HP VirtualSystem is modular and easily optimized for midsize businesses, helping channel partners to sell and speed time to value. HP VirtualSystem for VMware offers partners faster time to revenue via streamlined and simplified solution sales and delivery of HP-optimized VMware solutions.

In addition to delivering HP VirtualSystem for VMware solutions, partners can customize HP Virtualization Smart Bundles. These are optimized configurations that deliver predictable performance and reduce complexity with modular components to add performance and capacity as needed.

HP VirtualSystem for VMware is available now starting at $167,300, including HP Converged Infrastructure, factory integration and three years of HP Support Plus 24. Clients can leverage existing licensing agreements or purchase pre-installed VMware licensing from HP.
