HP product combines with VMware

HP, the world’s largest tech company, announced on July 12, 2011 that a new software, VMware, is integrated with HP’s Converged Infrastructure, allowing for an open, hybrid cloud environment. This setup, which includes enhanced integration, allows customers to manage storage, server, client hardware and networking through a unified, centralized management situation.

The VMware program not only simplifies maintenance and security within a unified framework, but also offers integrated turnkey options for virtualization. This new platform also automates the complexities of allocation of cloud resources to meet opportunities through integration with HP Intelligent Management Center, HP TippingPoint vController and other modules.

Accelerating a path to the cloud, the VMware software connects and simplifies virtualized and cloud environments by integrating with HP VirtualSystem and HPCloudSystem. As the VMware program integrates with HP Operations Orchestration, it offers more than 4,000 templates and solutions, helping customers in provisioning applications, servers and other items at a fast pace.

Overall, the impact of VMware, as it integrates with so many HP modules, is to facilitate the convergent network and other IT processes to move to the cloud, taking on a systematic approach to the situation and not employing rip-and-replace efforts.
