HP has announced the industry’s first all-in-one solution for deploying an open and flexible private cloud environment within 30 days. The system is called HP CloudStart.
HP CloudStart is built on HP Converged Infrastructure and is aimed at simplifying and speeding up private cloud deployments. Consisting of hardware, software and services, HP CloudStart empowers businesses to deliver pay-per-use services reliably and securely from a common portal, and it offers the ability to scale and deploy new services automatically. Real-time access to consumption and chargeback reports allows clients to operate their private clouds in the same fashion as a public cloud.
“To better serve the needs of their enterprises, clients are asking us to help them become internal service providers with the ability to deliver applications through a highly flexible private cloud environment,” said Gary M. Budzinski, senior vice president and general manager, Technology Services, HP. “With CloudStart, HP is enabling clients to optimize applications for private cloud computing today, while providing a platform for a comprehensive, open and hybrid environment in the future.”
