Converged Infrastructure

Join HP at the VMware Partner Exchange 2014, February 10-13

By HP Guest Alain Inugai, Product Marketing Manager, HP ConvergedSystem 


Next week, beginning February 10, at VMware Partner Exchange 2014 at Moscone Center West in San Francisco, VMware partners will gather to learn how to position their business for growth with VMware and understand emerging customer needs. One key opportunity for growth for VMware partners is HP ConvergedSystem.  These integrated systems provide customers the entire infrastructure necessary to deploy virtualization – servers, storage, networking, virtualization software and services. Deployed correctly, they can deliver a fast path to virtualization while reducing costs.


The recently released HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization does just that. It provides an entire virtualization hardware and software infrastructure as a complete, pre-integrated and tested system that is easy to buy, manage and support.  Customers can get anywhere from 50 to 1000 or more virtual machines on the HP ConvergedSystem and it can be purchased for a low monthly fixed cost at entry prices 25% less than other integrated virtualization systems.  HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization is easy to deploy going from order to operations in as few as 20 days.  The workload-optimized system is managed as one and is supported as a single solution from HP, giving customers just one call to make for both pro-active and reactive care.  With HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization, customers get faster time-to-value, dramatic savings in IT resources, faster application deployment and the ability to redeploy resources for mission-critical business needs.


Don’t miss what HP is doing at VMware PEX

There are two key activities for attendees at PEX to learn more about HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization in person.


  • HP will be presenting during the voot camp held February 10.  During this session you can learn about the value of the HP ConvergedSystem, how these systems solve customer virtualization problems, and how partners can grow their business with VMware and HP to meet the needs of their customers.
  • Jeff Carlat, Director of Product Management for HP ConvergedSystem, will be leading the breakout session, “Get Your Customers on the Fast Track: HP ConvergedSystem Provides the Fastest Path to Virtualization”.   You will learn how workload-optimized HP ConvergedSystem products can give customers proven value and position their data center into the future to deal with new virtualization initiatives, cloud computing initiatives and unchecked data and device growth.

You can learn more about HP ConvergedSystem before PEX by listening to Jeff and Brent Sullivan, Director of HP Alliance, VMware at HP Discover Barcelona discuss how these systems can provide value to customers and how HP and VMware have created tight integration between HP and VMware technology throughout the HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization, providing a robust virtualization solution with deep integrated management.


We look forward to seeing you at PEX next week at the boot camp, breakout session and at the HP Booth.
