Recently, I needed to research and determine how mission-critical workloads can be part of a cloud strategy. Since HP customers depend on Integrity with HP-UX solutions and NonStop for their mission-critical workloads, I specifically needed to explain how and if Integrity based solutions can be part of their cloud strategy.
A key customer concern is where mission-critical data resides. Plus, customers want innovative technologies and solutions to better manage IT, but they can’t disrupt their mission-critical environment. In the future, they will not want to maintain an x86 cloud and a separate mission-critical environment. HP addresses this need with HP CloudSystem, a complete and integrated solution to build and manage services across private, public, and hybrid cloud. This integrated and comprehensive solution also builds in mission-critical Integrity with security and resiliency in HP CloudSystem Matrix for HP-UX.
For some of us, moving to the private cloud will be a journey. Knowing that your mission-critical Integrity solutions are cloud ready and can put you on the path to cloud is a good first step in the journey.
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. Along with deploying a cloud-capable infrastructure, customers can immediately benefit from the improved performance and cost savings that a server refresh provides.
