HP has expanded its private cloud infrastructure and services to allow enterprises to virtualise applications more easily.
Based on HP's Converged Infrastructure, services include HP's technology consulting services for datacentre strategy and operations planning, extended HP Cloudsystem portfolio to include financing and developer services as well as virtual systems to enable the deployment of virtualised application environments.
"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 for 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," Donatelli added.
Legacy datacentres require shorter planning cycles to prepare for cloud computing and to deliver services instantly, advised HP.
