HP and VMware join forces for an integrated cloud system

Thursday, 02 September, 2010

To help customers better control and manage the physical and virtual aspects of cloud infrastructure, VMware and HP are creating an integrated cloud infrastructure solution combining the new VMware vCloud Director with the HP BladeSystem Matrix and HP Cloud Maps. The HP Cloud Map for VMware vCloud Director can be directly imported into customers’ Matrix environments to rapidly deploy new VMware vCloud infrastructure. Through the integration of Matrix and VMware vCloud Director, customers can scale virtualised resource pools to quickly adjust to changing business demands. The integration will be available as a technology preview by the end of the year.

With the new HP Insight Control extension for VMware vCenter Server, clients can optimise their IT environments and reduce complexity with better management. HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter Server delivers HP hardware management capabilities to virtualisation administrators, enabling comprehensive monitoring, remote control and power optimisation directly from the VMware vCenter Server console. With a combined physical and virtual view, clients can reduce server sprawl by monitoring status and performance of virtual machines and the underlying host systems that support them from a single pane of glass. Integrated troubleshooting, remote control and proactive power management further simplify data centre operations while reducing risk and power costs.

VMware and HP will develop reference architectures that deliver integrated, validated solutions for SMB, enterprise and cloud environments and client virtualisation. The reference architectures provide an IT blueprint for integrated solutions and deployment best practices. This makes it easy for customers to implement the right virtualised solution for their business needs with confidence. The reference architectures, which leverage the companies’ 10-year collaboration, will be available by the end of the year.
