HP CloudStart - Your 30 day journey to the cloud, begins here!

Chris Purcell

For businesses looking to initiate their private cloud efforts, build an agile, scalable and extensible foundation, and launch an application-focused shared service environment, HP’s CloudStart solution delivers pre-integrated, pre-architected and fixed price offerings.


HP CloudStart solutions bring together hardware, software and services to put private cloud deployments on the fast track. With all the required components pre-integrated and delivered at a fixed price, customers can use HP CloudStart to easily deploy services on demand within 30 days.


HP CloudStart makes it possible to deliver pay-per-use services from a common portal and offers the ability to create and deploy new services automatically. With HP CloudStart, customers can:

  • Request a service via a portal
  • Have service provided immediately
  • Use the service without worrying about security, management, etc
  • Scale or cancel the service
  • Get a regular report on consumption or chargeback

HP CloudStart solutions are designed to be specific to a given service or application, while also extensible via HP’s Converged Infrastructure portfolio to meet customized needs.


The base HP CloudStart-for-Compute solution is a turnkey private cloud offering intended to rapidly enable on-demand compute service delivery.


HP CloudStart-for-Exchange, for today’s market-leading messaging solution, speeds private cloud deployment of Microsoft® Exchange. It integrates Microsoft Exchange 2010 (Cloud Maps) with CloudStart-for-Compute and specialized Exchange delivery services to provide common, extensible cloud functionality such as chargeback, portal, automation framework and high availability, tailored for an Exchange deployment.


You can also easily customize CloudStart offerings with additional integration points and functionality that extends your cloud journey into the cloud. CloudSystem solutions are comprised of the following key components: HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) for Matrix (as an option), CloudMaps, and Services.
