PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 25, 2011 -- HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced a suite of new products and services that enable businesses and governments 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 Ann Livermore, executive vice president, HP Enterprise Business. “HP has the enterprise experience, breadth of portfolio and global service delivery organization 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.
