Up until now, virtualization solutions have had lots to offer, but they forced you to compromise.
For example, if you wanted to follow a “do it yourself” model, you benefited from flexibility and the ability to pick and choose the precise components you wanted. You felt confident that by choosing proven pieces-parts, your solution would be more reliable. On the flip side, this type of heterogeneous system was difficult to manage, it was complex to support, and it cost a lot to run.
Other companies chose virtualization appliances, which arrived on site ready to run. While these systems were easier to order and deploy, they were inherently inflexible, resistant to change, required multiple vendors for management, and in the end delivered little or no cost savings benefits.
All things considered, we think it’s time to break free from the past and deliver something new.
Starting today, you don’t have to compromise to get what you need from virtualization. Starting today, you can deploy HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
