Hyper-converged + cloud = the next generation of converged infrastructure



While the business benefits of cloud are significant, it hasn’t always been easy to scale the underlying infrastructure needed to support it. Sure, providing self-service catalogs to users improves their productivity, but the task of managing separate pools of compute, memory, storage, and networking were still left to the administrative staff. That meant additional complexity (and risk) when organizations had to expand the footprint of the cloud environments.

Hyper-convergence (HC) addresses the challenges of today’s siloed data center infrastructure by introducing a new software-defined infrastructure that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources in an entirely seamless, easily scalable appliance module. The more modules you add, the more performance and capacity you gain.


As your business transitions to the software-defined data center (SDDC) of the future, you’ll need hyper-converged solutions like these, which serve as self-contained, modular building blocks designed to quickly handle changing workloads and accommodate new business.


To provide maximum flexibility when moving to a hyper-converged system, and to enable your business to move its operations to the cloud when ready, the HP ConvergedSystem 200-HC Store Virtual powered by Intel (one of two HP hyper-converged offerings) is now available with HP Helion CloudSystem software. HP Helion CloudSystem is comprehensive cloud software that makes it easy for your organization to build, manage, and consume workloads in a hybrid cloud environment. Built on an enterprise-grade OpenStack technology foundation, this solution provides an open cloud architecture. With this secure and integrated solution, the gap between traditional IT and cloud computing is bridged and you can efficiently build and manage cloud services across private and hybrid clouds.


Scaling up to 32 nodes, HP Helion CloudSystem on HP ConvergedSystem 200-HC Store Virtual comes with two choices: CloudSystem Foundation for essential IaaS features; and CloudSystem Enterprise for advanced IaaS as well as hybrid cloud management. The OneView Instant-on utility stands up the Virtualization layer in 15 minutes. CloudSystem software is customer installable with optional TS installation & startup services. Overall, the solution decreases your time-to-value and increases your ROI.


This new cloud solution integrated with the HP ConvergedSystem 200-HC offers these benefits:

  • Efficient and Cost-Effective – Integrated Components, Compact Form-Factors, Reduced Footprint, and Low Power & Cooling Costs
  • Easy Path to Open Hybrid Cloud – Automation of Traditional and Cloud-Native Workloads
  • Pre-Configured System for Quick Setup – Quick-Start HP OneView InstantOn Utility


HP Helion CloudSystem on HP ConvergedSystem 200-HC StoreVirtual provides your business with the hyper-converged building blocks it needs to move to a software-defined data center and the cloud system you’ve been looking for that can transition you to an open hybrid cloud environment.
