HP has unveiled a suite of new services to enable businesses to get on board with cloud computing.
The company’s new Hybrid Delivery cloud solutions aim to provide the full benefits of the cloud – faster deployment of new services and reduced IT costs – while remedying the areas the cloud has traditionally lacked in for businesses. Namely, security and ease of integration.
Ann Livermore, Executive VP of HP’s Enterprise Business, enthused: “Cloud computing is going mainstream and HP is leading the way. HP has the enterprise experience, breadth of portfolio and global service delivery organization to lead our clients through this transformation.”
HP is touting its Enterprise Cloud Services-Compute, which delivers all the resources necessary to access a hybrid private cloud. Run from HP’s data centres, the service is governed by specific policies for security, privacy and performance.
According to the company, HP CloudSystem provides the “most complete [and] integrated system to build, manage and consume services across private, public and hybrid cloud environments.”
CloudSystem also supports HP Cloud Maps, which provides preconfigured catalogue objects to facilitate new cloud services to get up and running in just minutes.
The company is also set to offer one and two day Cloud Discovery Workshops to help both businesses and governments develop the right strategy towards the cloud. These sessions will cover a diverse range of cloud issues, such as business model implications and security concerns.
