At a recent Cloud session I attended, I found the HP cloud strategy and journey to the cloud discussion most interesting and want to share some key points with you. Customers are at various stages of evaluating their cloud strategy. For their mission-critical workloads, a key concern is how to ensure data is secure and protected in the cloud. HP addresses this with HP CloudSystem, a complete and integrated solution to build and manage services across private, public, and hybrid cloud. This solution also builds in mission-critical Integrity, security and resiliency in HP CloudSystem Matrix for HP-UX.
As you plan your path to the private cloud for your mission-critical applications, consider the following:
- Convergence is fundamental. Implementing a mission-critical Converged Infrastructure, including transitioning to HP’s newest Integrity servers, is a fundamental step for any customer looking to deploy mission-critical workloads in the cloud, whether now or in the future. Customers can immediately benefit from the improved performance and cost savings that a server refresh provides.
- Virtualization optimizes application services deployed. HP VirtualSystem for Superdome 2/HP-UX is a turnkey mission-critical solution that is fully tested and simplifies virtualization implementation. Mission-critical reference architectures can also speed the time to deployment for mission-critical virtualization.
- Automation drives flexibility and efficiency. HP CloudSystem Matrix for HP-UX provisions infrastructure and applications quickly and utilizes best practice templates for a catalog of services. HP Cloudmaps are preconfigured service definitions that help you deploy, configure and size your cloud services.
