HP Cloud System Optimized for Partners


HP announced the expansion of our HP Converged Cloud portfolio, with new solutions optimized for VMware, enabling customers to easily transform traditional virtualization deployments into private and hybrid cloud environments with less risk and complexity.

HP is the leading platform for VMware virtualization, and with the announcement of new VMware vCloud Suites for customers who choose to standardize on VMware Cloud, HP has taken decisive action to continue as the leading partner for VMware in this space.

We have invested in deep integration across server, storage and networking, bringing unique IP to our shared customers. We are also innovatively integrating HP CloudSystem IP with the VMware vCloud suite to help customers manage both virtual and physical environments and deliver a pathway to the industry’s best heterogeneous hybrid cloud.

HP and Microsoft are simplifying the evolution to private cloud and investing in joint solution development that builds on best in class HP Converged Infrastructure, Windows Server, Microsoft System Center and Microsoft Hyper-V.

Working together HP and Microsoft are able to provide customers with converged solutions, expert services and reference architectures as well as the only end-to-end physical and virtual management offering in the industry.
