Converged Infrastructure

The fastest path to virtualization. With breakthrough TCO.


Virtualization has proven its mettle in a variety of ways: faster provisioning, smaller footprint, better resource utilization, increased uptime and energy savings. That’s not to say it doesn’t come with challenges. System design, component selection, deployment, integration, testing, tweaking – these can take a lot of time and effort.


Radical standardization across the data center simplifies IT

By Guest blogger Brent Allen, HP Converged Systems Product Marketing


What if you could build everything necessary for an ecosystem into a bounded infrastructure? That was the question HP asked in June of 2013, when we formed the new HP Converged Systems business unit and took a fresh approach to reduce infrastructure complexity and simplify IT for our customers.

A New Style of IT for a New Style of Partner

The new style of IT is changing how customers acquire and manage infrastructure so IT has more time for business innovation. It demands a new style of partner who can spend more time as a business advisor. The new HP ConvergedSystem is designed for channel delivery and supports the new style of partner that customers demand.

The perfect virtualization platform for midsize businesses

For some organizations, the full benefits of virtualization – faster provisioning, smaller footprint, better resource utilization, increased uptime, energy savings, to name a few – may seem out of reach because of cost and complexity concerns. Smaller companies, for example, typically lack the IT resources and skill sets to take on virtualization projects. Or perhaps you’ve dabbled in virtualization and like the results but don’t look forward to repeating the process...

It’s a new era of virtualization

What’s on your wish list for virtualization? Simplified ordering? Ease of deployment? Faster time to value? Fewer tools and easier support processes? Scalability so you can meet not just today’s needs but tomorrow's as well? A system optimized for your specific workloads? Increased efficiency? Investment protection?
