Enterprises today are being forced to do more with less. This trend is directly impacting the IT department as well. They are asked to be more competitive despite decreasing budgets.  Innovation and growth are being stifled and choked out. IT centers are running out of capacity and space in their traditional brick and mortar data centers.


The HP POD gives enterprises and their IT departments another way to look at data center expansion. This compact, modular unit delivers the ultimate in data center efficiency. It offers 10-times the IT capacity of a traditional data center and can be deployed within 12 weeks—88 percent faster than a brick and mortar construction.


The HP PODc, a 20-foot water-cooled POD, will be available for customer and channel partner tours during the Pathways to Cloud Roadshow 2012 sponsored by HP and Intel®.  There will also be a digital experiences available of the EcoPOD (240a). These experiences will be available at these shows:

  • Dallas—March 19th - 21st
  • Washington D.C.—March 26- 28th
  • Phoenix –April 3rd - 6th

At the “Pathways to Cloud Road Show 2012” you will learn how HP experts can help your organization establish a new cloud infrastructure. Or, if you already utilize cloud capabilities, they will show you how to best evolve your current system to meet your current and future needs.
