Today, private cloud remains a top growth area.  As a provider of cloud services, you want to meet your customer’s needs.  Within hosted private cloud environments, HP’s end users consistently tell us they want the following:


•             Assurance of additional capacity for peak times - while paying only for what they use

•             High availability – at least 5 nines

•             A secure environment

•             Able to re-write applications without disruption


At HP, we are designing our cloud software, servers, and storage to  meet these needs. 

HP Matrix Operating Environment (MOE) 7.2 for Capacity Management.  Check out the newest features for this cloud management software for IaaS.

HP Datacenter Care Primary Service Provider for 5 Nines Availability.  Service providers have multiple hardware and software products from a variety of vendors in multiple places all around the world. HP Datacenter Care Primary Service consolidates the responsibility for vendor management and service delivery into a single service agreement.

HP Cloud Service Automation for Security and Flexibility.  Deliver infrastructure and application services faster with the industry’s most comprehensive, unified cloud management platform for brokering and managing enterprise-grade application and infrastructure cloud services. HP Cloud Service Automation is available as part of HP CloudSystem or as a standalone software solution.
