HP Expands Converged Cloud Portfolio
HP has expanded its Converged Cloud portfolio with new offerings that extend the power of the cloud across infrastructure, applications and information, enabling enterprises to accelerate innovation and enhance agility.

The new announcements include solutions for, delivering converged cloud services for the airline industry, building hybrid cloud environments, managing the next generation of cloud applications, increasing office productivity with cloud print solution and closing the IT cloud expertise skills gap.

HP Converged Cloud is the industry’s first strategy and portfolio based on a single architecture that combines private, managed and public cloud, as well as traditional IT, to create an environment that can rapidly change based on organisational requirements.
Recent research conducted on behalf of HP suggests that by 2020, senior business and technology executives expect their organisations’ public and private cloud delivery models to nearly double. However, if not implemented properly, these delivery models could yield cloud silos, creating complexity, risk and vendor lock-in.
“Successful organisations need to be able to select the right delivery model for their technology needs whether it be in the cloud or on premise,” said Bill Veghte, Chief Operating Officer, HP. “HP’s Converged Cloud approach provides enterprises choice in delivery model and platform with the confidence in the service delivered via market leading products, coupled with a consistent architecture and experience.”

Enabling airlines to quickly introduce new products and services to enhance revenue, HP announced its vision of an “Intelligent Airline Cloud,” delivering integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platforms that meet the specific requirements of airline clients. HP Converged Cloud Services for Airlines provides the industry’s first hybrid delivery approach to the cloud.

HP extended the “cloud bursting” capabilities of HP CloudSystem to deliver instant access to additional capacity through HP Cloud Services, Amazon Web Services and Savvis. A core element of the HP Converged Cloud portfolio, HP CloudSystem provides a complete, integrated and open platform that enables enterprises and service providers to build and manage services across private, managed and public cloud environments.

As clients adopt cloud environments, applications and business-process performance become intertwined, increasing complexity. HP Application Performance Management 9.2 for Converged Cloudhelps clients manage across converged cloud environments, improving the performance management of cloud and mobile applications. Significant enhancements to HP Diagnostics, HP Real User Monitor and HP SiteScope allow close collaboration between operations and development teams, while providing extended mobile-monitoring capabilities for applications in cloud environments.

HP’s cloud printing solution for enterprises, HP ePrint Enterprise 2.0, enables easy, driverless printing from mobile devices to an existing fleet of network printers.
