This DCIG report details how HP 3PAR F-class midrange arrays provide enhanced levels of VMware integration and optimized virtual machine density so users experience levels of VMware efficiency, performance and visibility well beyond what other midrange arrays natively provide.
This paper summarizes and evaluates the prevalence and efficacy of data center virtualization deployments, as well as the hardware that supports them. The conclusions drawn from this report are based on analysis of both quantitative market research and two qualitative interviews with a CIO and CTO in healthcare and finance, respectively. Each customer, referred to ESG by Hewlett-Packard (HP), had extensive experience deploying both server and desktop virtualization. The goal of the study was to determine the IT and business drivers to adoption of virtual technologies, the expected and realized benefits, ensuing infrastructure decisions,future outlook of the data center, and best practices for deployment.
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.
While virtualization is delivering clear benefits to multiple areas of IT, organizations need to start thinking about it holistically to serve business needs. Learn more about maximizing the value of your virtualization IT environment with this CIO.com eBook.
With the gaining popularity of virtualization in today’s enterprise data centers, you need a virtual security solution that allows you to confidently adopt virtualization throughout your data center without compromising on your existing security postures.
This paper examines historical concerns about Linux virtualization, and assesses why, when, and how enterprises can safely virtualize their critical Linux workloads. We also review a Linux virtualization solution that meets enterprise needs -- the powerful combination of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and HP ProLiant Servers.
The workplace is changing rapidly to accommodate mobile and flexible work styles, as employees expect the same computing experience when working remotely as they get in the office. And those expectations are rising rapidly among all employees — not just in the executive hallways or engineering labs. To discover more about mobile work styles and client virtualization trends in today’s enterprises, Citrix Systems and HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey IT decision-makers in North America, Europe, and Asia for this Technology Adoption Profile (TAP). Coupled with Forrester’s existing Forrsights data, we found that IT is turning to client virtualization to manage the growing complexity that BYOD programs and mobility initiatives have created and is embracing end-to-end solutions to overcome the toughest client virtualization challenges concerning cost, performance, scalability, and security.
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.
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.
