As traditional IT struggles to keep pace with users expectations, many CIOs are investigating hybrid delivery models. HP CloudSystem is a private cloud that enables users to request services containing physical and virtual servers, storage, networking and operating systems via a self-service portal.
Industry Class-leading HP Converged Infrastructure hardware and automation software means services can be automatically provisioned within the hour.
Following the 80/20 rule, standardisation of common IT Service requests enables IT to concentrate on bespoke business critical systems and developing new standards. Leasing / chargeback / showback are built into the software.
HP CloudSystem is more flexible than Amazon Web Services and more cost effective over time. Organisations can leverage Cloud Maps jointly created by HP, Microsoft, Oracle and other ISVs to quickly define services guaranteed to meet standard level objectives.
