Key points: Cloud Service Automation is HP’s comprehensive software to automate and manage heterogeneous, hybrid cloud implementations for enterprise and service provider clients. CSA for Matrix is a subset of CSA capabilities, exclusively designed as a quick and easy way to extend BladeSystem Matrix with server lifecycle management, basic application provisioning and monitoring. Customers can use either CSA for Matrix or the full Cloud Service Automation software in a CloudSystem solution. Since CSA for Matrix is a subset of CSA, customers can smoothly evolve to a more advanced CloudSystem environment with their investment protected.When combined together, Matrix and CSA for Matrix form a robust, entry-level CloudSystem solution that is far superior to competitive IaaS solutions. CSA for Matrix is a packaging of HP Server Automation, and HP SiteScope that is integrated directly into the Matrix service catalog and orchestration engine. It gives customers an easy, cost effective way to build a robust IaaS solution with advanced configuration lifecycle management, patching capability, compliance auditing, basic application provisioning and service monitoring.Enterprises and service providers with immediate requirements to build PaaS, SaaS, and advanced private and hybrid cloud delivery systems should start with CloudSystem’s comprehensive configuration that features HP Cloud Service Automation and BladeSystem Matrix. In this solution, CSA delivers a service catalog for public, private, and hybrid services. It provides advanced provisioning and lifecycle management of databases, middleware, and applications as well as compliance and service management. And it can manage services across cloud and traditional IT environments.
Key pointsFixed price for up to 4 compute servicesIncludes infrastructure based on Matrix as well as the professional services to get the compute service up & runningIncludes delivery of core cloud functionality that can be extended to other cloud servicesNotesNow lets look at under the covers of Cloud Start Solution: It is basically fixed price and scope for services, hardware and software, ready for use 30 days after HW installation and start-up and delivers end to end cloud compute service experience, delivering up to 4 compute services (Windows & Linux, small and medium)What does it include? Set of services providing true cloud user experience: Initially launching this for ‘compute service’ HP is providing true cloud experience to users. It includes the planning, the implementation of the compute services, and other cloud functionality like backup, security and chargeback. Importantly, this cloud functionality can be extended to other services as an environment grows. Delivery of these services from pooled, shared, efficient cloud-enabled platform – BladeSystem Matrix: Matrix is the backbone of the cloud, providing the core self-service portal, the infrastructure provisioning and capacity optimization. Since Matrix is already integrated by design, it’s easy to build services right away.Application lifecycle: CloudStart integrates application provisioning and monitoring through CSA for Matrix (now included in the base CloudStart offering)The whole solution is integrated by HP experts. Our experts start from customer needs while providing workshop and planning services to define cloud computing needs, pricing and functionality options for our customers….This solution is unique in the industry – no one else has all the ingredients to pull this off.
