One-size-fits-all does not fit most organizations’ needs. Today’s world requires a converged delivery model, sourced across traditional, private and public cloud offerings. A converged cloud strategy provides simplicity, speed, reduced cost and risk, and compliance. HP’s Converged Cloud is a common architectural foundation across traditional IT and private, managed and public clouds.
Key things customers wantManage their IT resources as a collective poolSimilar ability to define tiered networking topologies, in similar ways, both on-premise and off-premise in the public cloudAbility to shift workloads across AZs or even b/w on and off-premise resourcesAchieve the promise of the cloudSecureReliableScalableCost-efficient (pay just for what you use) Things HP wantsReliabilityHigh performance (same or greater than physical networking infrastructure customers are accustomed to)Scalable (overcoming IP & MAC address limits that you’d otherwise hit w/traditional VLANs)
