Learn how to meet cloud application service requests with quality, confidence, and speed for CloudSystem


Written by Deepak Belani,  


Delivering application services for the cloud today is a long, cumbersome, complex, error-prone and non-repeatable manual process. It requires multiple IT planning meetings, coordination across teams, design reviews, architecture, configuration, testing, qualifying, followed by creating the service, activating the service, and managing the application lifecycle. And, there’s no guarantee the service will be set up correctly, fully optimized and error-free.


IDC has determined that the time to deploy a cloud service at minimum can take 10 weeks or more. This is clearly not good enough when we are talking about the need to move at cloud speed. The promise of cloud is ‘service in minutes’. Is there a better way?


Welcome to HP Cloud Maps, a better way:

HP Cloud Maps are prepackaged, optimized, and tested templates for use with HP CloudSystem and related software to automate the deployment of applications in the cloud. Leveraging the deep partnerships HP has with key independent software vendors (ISVs), its expertise in cloud infrastructure and software, and the knowledge and intellectual property developed in the course of real-world HP customer deployments, HP Cloud Maps enable:


• Repeatable, proven deployment that reduces risk and assures improved service levels

• Optimized performance, with built-in disaster tolerance, capacity planning, compliance, and life cycle management

• Savings of up to 200 staff-hours in design, development, and deployment for each application environment

• Fast assembly of application service catalogs, with a portfolio of Cloud Maps for over 100 leading business applications

• Push-button simple delivery of new applications, often in less than an hour
