Investing in VMware Support — It’s Just a Matter of Common Sense

With VMware’s announcement of vSphere 5, you may be considering virtualization for your IT environment. Or perhaps you’re thinking of upgrading your current VMware solutions.

 

You may also be asking yourself the following question: Who will do the job?

 

You’re right to ask the question. Virtualization environments only work as well as they have been designed and implemented. Why would you take the risk of doing it with your in-house IT staff, who may not be experts, when you can easily purchase the help of an expert who won’t cost you an arm and a leg? (Learn about the 8 best practices to plan and implement virtualization — 493KB, PDF.)

 

And this question leads to another one: Who will support your VMware environment?

 

Virtualization is a fantastic technology that also has some traps. It can become a nightmare when issues occur that aren’t clearly coming from one of the components of your environment — the kind of thing that arises in-between the hardware and the software. These issues can ruin the return on your IT investment. They can even bring your end-users’ best friends — I mean the applications! — to a grinding halt.  

 

HP Support Services counts the highest number of VMware certified experts to help you. Our experts will take ownership of any issue all the way through to its solution, and they’ll find the fastest way to get there, working closely with VMware when needed. Even better: They can prevent future issues from arising, while improving your virtual IT performance.

 

That means a faster time-to-business-value for your virtualization projects — a core benefit of HP Converged Infrastructure.
