There's a reason why the buzz around cloud computing never seems to die down. Concrete results are replacing the initial hype. Many organizations are taking advantage of private clouds which come with the accessibility of a public cloud and the security of a local server.
This whitepaper defines a best practices reference architecture and detailed implementation guide for building a highly available two node virtualization or private cloud solution ideally suited for mid-sized businesses and branch office deployments.
Read this white paper sponsored by HP and Intel® for an overview of the HP Cloud Discovery Workshop and to understand how it can help clarify your company's cloud vision -- through costs, potential and innovations.
It is very clear that datacenter managers need, in addition to server virtualization, the virtualization, pooling, and management of all the other resources that interoperate with their VMs. They require virtualized network interconnects and storage. They also need the tools to manage and automate these converged IT assets as an integrated datacenter system.
This more agile system is the key to enabling the shift to a cloud-based infrastructure IT delivery model. Solution providers like HP are now addressing the need for more optimized and agile IT solutions. They are delivering virtualized storage, virtual application network (VAN) infrastructure, and the orchestration software to manage and automate all these ingredients as a single system.

HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft is designed to provide a scalable, high-performance integrated infrastructure optimized for virtual environments built on Microsoft Hyper-V. Designed and built according to the Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track reference architecture, HP Virtual System for Microsoft comes standard with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (which includes Hyper-V) and is designed to deliver top performance for a wide range of virtualized applications, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and SharePoint. This paper will focus on ESG’s analysis of the costs and benefits—and ultimate economic value—associated with deploying and managing HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft, versus a comparable conventional data center infrastructure comprised of discreet, non-integrated compute, storage, network, and management components.
In this white paper, Stratecast explores the relationship between hardware and software components in delivering a high-performing cloud environment. We present a list of questions to guide the reader in evaluating the offers of different cloud providers. Finally, we consider HP integrated solutions (hardware tuned to service automation platforms) as an effective choice for building a high-performance cloud environment.
Read this case study to learn how GMO Media achieved a significant reduction in the implementation period of a service development environment using a private cloud. HP Converged Infrastructure and private cloud built on HP ProLiant BL465c G7 Server Blades and open-source software (OSS) with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) enables speed and supports business growth.
The fast-evolving digital landscape is changing the game for all organizations. The way we consume content, conduct research, consume video and music, and drive efficiency in our work environment is raising the bar for digital experience. Organizations that rely on the internet to reach customers and drive revenue increasingly turn to cloud-based infrastructure and content delivery networks (CDNs) to achieve the reach and global footprint needed to keep up with customer demands. Delivering these services with high availability and performance across an unpredictable internet over which you have very little visibility and control is a major challenge.
