HP Introduces New Converged Systems Solution

HP has announced some new solutions that simplify ordering, time to deployment and ongoing support.

Along similar lines as other vendor solutions in the market such as VCE's vBlock, EMC's VPSEX and NetApp's FlexPod, HP aims to integrate their various technologies into one rack or set of racks.

One advantage that HP has is the fact that they offer everything outside of the OS layer. The servers, blades, storage, networking, management and orchestration software all comes from HP.

HP has started by offering Converged System solutions for Virtualization, Client Virtualization / VDI and Big Data. There will be other solutions shipping soon around Cloud and Collaboration.



HP VirtualSystem has been shipping for a few years but it lacked the single support line, ie, single support number for all included solutions (Compute, Storage, VMware, etc.). Now with Converged System we get that feature built into base offering.

We will post more information on experiences and ideal use cases in the coming months.
