Jump-start your customers’ virtualization journey as well as your own sales creating a win-win


By Global Partner Marketing Managers—Hillorie Bachman, HP Servers, and Stephanie Hardisty, VMware


As an HP and VMware partner, you know how great virtualization can be for a business of any size. Introducing or extending virtualization technologies from the IT environment into the business is a significant step toward creating a more agile infrastructure to support business growth.


Then again, your small- to medium-sized business customers might be reluctant to get off the fence when it comes to actually implementing virtualization. Whether they think virtualization is for the “big guys,” or feel they just don’t have the dedicated IT staff to help them out, HP Flex-Bundles for VMware vSphere with Operations Management is just the solution needed to get them off the fence and into an integrated virtualization solution.


What are “Flex-Bundles”?

Flex-Bundles are pre-defined, affordable packages that combine the world’s most intelligent platform—HP ProLiant servers, storage, and networking—with VMware vSphere with Operations Management software. Flex-Bundle solutions also include HP OneView integrated with VMware vCenter to put unprecedented power and efficiency within easy reach. This is the solution that will get your customers started—and keep them moving—on their virtualization journey.


So, no matter where they currently reside on their virtualization journey, HP Flex-Bundles optimized for VMware has something each and every small- to medium-sized business customer will appreciate. That’s why it comes in three sizes, each matched to a phase of business and IT needs: Starting Out, Building Momentum, or undergoing Business Expansion.


Since all three sizes of this reference configuration (RC) are based on HP ProLiant servers, your customers know they will be getting the right compute for the right workload—every time—on smart systems that reduce the time they spend on mundane IT tasks. These reference configurations also include VMware vSphere with Operations Management, giving them operational insight into their virtual environment and providing them with improved availability, and enhanced performance and capacity utilization.


Together, HP and VMware free them to*:

  • Reduce application downtime by up to 30 percent
  • Reduce diagnostics and problem resolution time by up to 26 percent
  • Improve VMware capacity utilization by up to 40 percent and consolidation ratio by up to 37 percent
