Today, we introduced a new set of Virtualization Bundles aimed taking some of the complexity --and cost - out of deploying virtualization for our SMB customers. HP's bundled servers, software, networking and management, along with VMware virtualization software to deliver a complete virtualization starter kit for SMBs. These bundles help our SMBs customers take advantage of all the business benefits virtualization has to offer more easily, enabling them to stretch their return on every IT dollar.
But the big deal isn't just the bundling. The big deal for SMBs is that through the use of technology from recently acquired LeftHand Networks, HP can ensure that application requirements are met and administrators can use existing resources to cost-effectively deploy shared storage. The LeftHand technology transforms the disk drives on the servers themselves, in to shared storage across all the virtualized servers, ensuring customer's virtualized applications stay online if a server goes down.
