Instant access for your desktop users

We live in the continuous now, where everyone expects to get whatever they want, instantly, at any point in time and through any channel. But as an IT administrator, how do you achieve instant access for your users while ensuring greater security, compliance and cost control? It’s simple. Unlock data and applications from the client device and guard them in the data center for greater simplicity, optimization and flexibility.


HP and VMware are working together to bring you an end-to-end, fully tested and optimized Client

Virtualization Reference Architecture based on VMware View, which capitalizes on the strength of a nearly decade-long relationship. It offers


  • Simplicity, with an integrated data center solution for rapid installation and easy, ongoing operations
  • Optimization, with a tested solution that is the right combination of compute, storage, networking and system management
  • Flexibility, with options to scale up and out to meet changing requirements


The complete reference architecture is a blueprint for HP VirtualSystem, a strategic portfolio of infrastructure solutions, which serves as the foundation for your virtualized workloads. Based on HP Converged Infrastructure (CI), HP VirtualSystem utilizes market-leading capabilities from VMware to centralize administrative tasks, improve scalability, optimize workloads and reduce complexity.


The solution includes the flexible HP P4800 SAN for BladeSystem, delivering storage that’s fine-tuned for client virtualization. Through a tight integration with HP BladeSystem, it offers a highly dense storage solution that dynamically scales as infrastructure expands. HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 and Flex-NICs dramatically simplify network infrastructure from the server to the core, eliminate rack switches, and make network setup and monitoring a breeze.


An end-to-end solution


The HP and VMware reference architecture also includes management software, like HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter, which provides administrators with deep insight and complete control of their VMware physical and virtualized infrastructure. Finally, HP offers a comprehensive suite of client virtualization planning, design and implementation support to help you assess your business needs, develop a strategic technology roadmap, and design, migrate and implement a robust and productive client virtualization solution.
