HP and Microsoft have delivered a simple two-node private cloud that combines the power of HP Converged Infrastructure, Microsoft Windows Server 2012, and Microsoft System Center in a simple RA.

 

Built to align with the Microsoft® Private Cloud Fast Track specification, the HP Departmental Private Cloud reference architecture (RA) combines HP and Microsoft® best practices for virtualization and cloud deployment.

 

The HP Departmental Private Cloud can be configured as a simple  virtualization platform that supports either Windows®  Server 2012 or Windows Server 2008 R2

It can also be transformed into a private cloud with the addition of Microsoft System Center.

 

Built from two HP ProLiant DL360e Gen8 servers, the HP P2000 G3 MSA Array System, and two HP E2910-24G al switches, this RA is designed to strike the optimum balance between high-availability (HA), performance, and cost.
