Infotech Lead America: HP has unveiled enhanced Converged Cloud offerings for enterprises.
“Enterprises are embracing open-source cloud solutions to increase workload portability and avoid vendor lock-in,” said Saar Gillai, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Cloud, HP.
HP on Monday said CloudSystem, its private cloud solution, now features integrated OpenStack technology with the latest release, HP CloudSystem 7.2.
The new and advanced cloud solution combines the flexibility of open-source software with enterprise-focused functionality for managing and scaling clouds.
HP claims that its CloudSystem leverages OpenStack technology to enable support of KVM resource pools. This allows enterprises to tap external resources directly from HP CloudSystem for pay-as-you-go capacity.
Additionally, HP introduced two new HP CloudSystem Bursting Activation Services that allow enterprises and service providers to reliably and quickly install and configure cloud bursting capabilities.
HP experts can help clients configure the HP CloudSystem software needed to burst from one HP CloudSystem to another, providing access to additional capacity across multiple HP CloudSystems and enabling service providers to deliver on demand capacity to customers.
HP also expanded its public cloud portfolio with new HP Cloud Messaging, available as a service to enable developers to build more fault-tolerant applications and reduce application downtime by duplicating messages on multiple servers.
