Market to SMBs with NEW assets for HP Flex-Bundles with VMware vSphere with Operations Management


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


If you’re searching for ways to expand your share of wallet with small- to medium-sized business customers, look no further. HP and VMware have combined forces to help you expand your new virtualization business and upsell current vSphere customers to vSphere with Operations Management (which includes joint solutions addressing the most pressing virtualization needs).


What’s the strategy? Businesses today need to boost their competitive edge by doing more, faster, better, and with less resources—and small- to medium-sized businesses are no exception. But selling virtualization into small- to medium-sized business accounts can be tricky. These accounts could be under the wrong impression that virtualization is just for “the big guys.” Or they may just lack dedicated IT staff to help them sort it all out.


That’s where you come in. In a nutshell, HP Flex-Bundles with VMware vSphere with Operations Management are pre-defined, affordable virtualization packages that combine the world’s most intelligent platform—HP ProLiant servers, storage, and networking—with VMware vSphere with Operations Management software. It also includes HP OneView for VMware vCenter, which seamlessly integrates the manageability features of HP ProLiant servers into the VMware vCenter console to put unprecedented power and efficiency in your customers’ hands.


This reference configuration (RC) is available in three sizes to appeal to small- to medium-sized business customers who are either Starting Out, Building Momentum, or undergoing Business Expansion. They epitomize HP’s compute strategy, which addresses IT demands with a vast pool of processing resources that can be located anywhere, scaled to any workload, and are available at all times. So, no matter where they are on their virtualization journey, HP Flex-Bundles optimized for VMware has something every one of your small- to medium-sized business customers will appreciate.

  • Become the trusted advisor on your customer’s virtualization journey
