Technology and services giant, HP, has launched several converged infrastructure solutions and extended its hybrid delivery solutions portfolio.
The company aims to simplify deployment and speed IT delivery with the converged infrastructure solutions and enable businesses to rapidly respond to evolving customer and citizen needs with its hybrid delivery solutions.
According to HP, more than two-thirds of c-suite executives consider enterprise agility to be driven by technology solutions. However, the IT collapse has resulted in enterprise complexity and lowered the ability of businesses to keep up with enterprise demands.
HP South-Pacific director of enterprise servers – storage and networking, Kevin Rooney, said, “The new solutions extend the benefits of convergence to deliver new levels of speed, simplicity and efficiency that enable clients to capitalise and anticipate change.”
The HP converged systems provides a common architecture, management and security model across virtualisation, cloud and dedicated application environments – consisting of its VirtualSystem, CloudSystem and AppSystem.
The new offerings for the converged infrastructure solutions include: converged systems, converged storage architecture and portfolio, converged data centre and the HP Server Automation 9.1 software.
HP also announced a new Storage Consulting Services offering that aids clients in designing and deploying a converged storage environment, optimising the storage infrastructure, decreasing costs, and aligning data while organising storage for cloud computing.
The hybrid delivery solutions combine traditional IT infrastructures with private and public clouds.
HP offers its following solutions for hybrid environments: CloudSystem, CloudAgile, Support Services for CloudSystem, CloudStart, CloudSystem curriculum and courses from HP Education Services and the Enterprise Cloud Service.
The company has added enhancements to its Cloud Services Enablement for Communications as a Service (HP CSE for CaaS). It enables wireless, wireline and broadband companies’ clients a ‘one-stop shop’ for IT and communications services – including messaging, collaboration and automated voice services.
In addition, HP said it will provide up to $2 billion to aid clients in cloud financing through its leasing and asset management subsidiary, Hewlett-Packard Financial Services Company.
HP South-Pacific vice-president and managing director, Paul Brandling, said, “Organisations today realise that agility is critical to their future success. They need it to meet the changing demands of customers and citizens, as well as drive competitive advantage.”
