HP VirtualSystem on winning streak: Best of TechEd 2012

As we move toward major partner events in the second half of 2012 it’s worth recapping some of the major successes we've had with our virtualization portfolio this year.


In June, HP VirtualSystem for Microsoft won Best of TechEd 2012 in the virtualization category.


At the show, the HP VirtualSystem VS3 solution ran the hands-on labs, and according to the instructors this was the first year that attendees could complete the labs on time.  To give an idea of the scale, the VirtualSystem VS3 ran over 13,000 labs and was able to start 40,000 virtual machines, while reducing installation times by around one-third.


According to Jason Bovberg, Senior Editor of Windows IT Pro, “Winners [of Best of Tech Ed 2012] were chosen based on their innovation, strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage, and exceptional value to customers.”


HP and Microsoft partner closely on virtualization and cloud computing.  In fact, more Microsoft virtualization and private cloud installations run on HP infrastructure than anyone else’s and HP VirtualSystem takes this a step further.


Jointly designed and engineered by HP and Microsoft, HP VirtualSystem removes the complexity of implementing high-performance and scalable virtualization, offering best-in-class infrastructure and software throughout the virtualization stack, including:

Built through HP Factory Express, delivered pre-tested, pre-configured and ready to run, HP VirtualSystem VS3 for Microsoft is designed with the cloud in mind, with a modular platform for hosting virtualized workloads of all sizes conforming to the proven Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Reference Architecture Specification.  This provides an easy migration path so that when the time is right, customers can upgrade to HP CloudSystem or Microsoft Private Cloud.
