If you are looking at implementing either a virtualized environment or Microsoft private cloud using Windows 2012 and System Center 2012 SP1, we’ll be at Microsoft TechEd 2013 in Madrid, with a lot of information that will help you get there faster.
Day 2 at HP Discover saw a major focus on Converged Cloud with announcements for:
- HP Converged Cloud Professional Services - a comprehensive portfolio of consulting services to help customers manage their cloud journeys and investments with an end-to-end lifecycle approach
- HP CloudSystem Enterprise Starter Suite - a bundled offering providing a rapid, cost-effective way for customers to get started with private cloud
Tom Joyce, Senior VP and General Manager, discussed the role HP Converged Systems have in delivering Converged Cloud, and how customer requirements have evolved over the last four years to focus on a higher level of systems integration for key workloads, so IT departments can more rapidly deliver against business needs. You can see more from Tom in the video below.
8,000 customers from 90 countries gathered together on Tuesday in Las Vegas to hear from HP about how our latest innovations are helping to shape the industry.
Meg Whitman’s main message on stage at the evening keynote was that HP’s driving ambition is to be the best company to partner with in the industry, for customers, ISV’s and solution providers.
For Converged Systems this is critical to everything we do, as we optimize systems in partnership with industry leading software vendors to deliver the best customer experience for Cloud, Virtualization, Big Data and Collaboration workloads, and this was the theme of the announcements we made at the outset of the show.
