HP Discover Session Shows the Quick Path to the Cloud

By Rod Trent, Windows IT Pro Technical Director


Rod Trent_Penton.jpgVirtualization is one of the major technologies to bring huge value to organizations during the past few years. However, many highly virtualized companies are still trying to understand how the Cloud (private, public, and hybrid) fits into a virtualized datacenter. Virtualization is an important part of the Cloud―one could say it's the cornerstone―but it's only a small part.


The Cloud is a group of automated technologies and processes that ensure high availability of applications, data, and services in a cost-effective way. IT groups are tasked with many projects related to achieving business targets through technology. A well-designed private cloud could free them to focus on critical assignments.


Microsoft and HP have partnered to provide a best-of-breed solution for helping organizations develop a private cloud within their datacenter. The value of the partnership takes a lot of the research and planning out of the equation. Microsoft provides the cloud-optimized Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 solutions to design, provision, and monitor the private cloud, while HP provides the hardware, integration functions, and support.


You can see the solutions in action and get your questions answered at the HP Discover breakout session: “Your cloud, your way with HP and Microsoft.” Microsoft and HP will talk about how their partnership allows organizations to develop Private Cloud solutions based on the actual needs of the business. For those companies still trying to figure out how the Cloud can improve overall operations, or what can be altered within the current datacenter to take advantage of the Cloud, this session will provide comprehensive information for formulating detailed plans.


Rod Trent is the IT Community Manager for Windows IT Pro.
