HP unwraps new cloud programs and products



HP is trying to make it cheaper and easier for its customers to move into public or private clouds. Financing and services are at the heart of the announcements.


HP's CloudSystem wraps together financing, services, developer resources and 100 new centres of excellence, including 50 in the Asia Pacific and Japan region. The company also claims its technology consulting services can speed the planning, design and building of cloud data centres by up to 40%.


Financing of up to $US2 billion for cloud projects is being offered to qualified customers, and HP offers service providers the option of stepped payments that increase over the first six to 12 months as their business grows.

On the packaged systems side, HP VirtualSystem for Microsoft and HP VirtualSystem for Superdome 2/HP-UX provides standardised building blocks for virtualised application environments for workloads such as SharePoint, Exchange, CRM, and ERP.

"Clients want our help in speeding their transition to cloud computing with proven methodologies and solutions based on HP converged infrastructure so they can increase innovation in their markets and better serve their customers," said Dave Donatelli, executive vice president and general manager, enterprise servers, storage, networking and technology services, at HP.

"Our new offerings clearly reflect the best of HP's skills and technology in driving this evolution for clients, while reducing complexity, costs and risk," he added.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
