HP encourages customers and partners to migrate to the cloud

During his lecture Discover 2011, HP has pushed its customers and partners to migrate to cloud architectures, private or hybrid, and both announced new tools, new services and new programs to aid migration. Discover the HP 2011 conference opened yesterday in Las Vegas on many ads aimed at strengthening the CloudSystem initiative announced earlier this year.

Leave to be taken against foot-observers who were expecting some dramatic announcements in public Cloud (HP rumored to prepare an offer for this summer cloud concurrent AWS) cloud or private (including the first appliances Windows Azure). None of that at Discover 2011. HP has chosen to focus on solutions to its existing customers but also partners VARs to converge their existing infrastructure to the cloud.

Announced last January, offers CloudSystems rely on HP BladeSystem servers and provide a platform to build and administer services Cloud public, private and hybrid through a cloud management tool (HP Service Cloud Automation software) to the interface very intuitive. During Discovery, 2011, HP announced the addition of a feature "Dual Cloud Bursting".

The concept of "Cloudbursting" is to distribute, and temporarily at the request, the workloads to external resources (public cloud) where internal resources (private clouds) are missing. With the concept of "Dual Bursting" HP wants to simplify the problems of scalability and management of peak loads at both the enterprise and its level of service providers.

In other words, the dual-bursting "embodies the concept of hybrid cloud and allows customers to provision and allocate resources dynamically or via a public cloud provider or through their own private cloud system (including a mechanism for internal chargeback" pay as you go "). Recognizing that businesses can only tackle the revolution Cloud, HP also launched a new program CloudAgile for its partners.

Together with a global budget of 2 billion dollars to help customers finance their migration to the cloud (through its subsidiary leasing and financing HP Financial Services) program CloudAgile wants to help a wide range of providers HP accelerate revenue generation around Cloud offerings and solutions from HP.

Pending future announcements of HP's Public Cloud, the manufacturer has already begun to build its first cloud services through two security services launched at Discover 2011: These services are not really new, but they are now broken down mode "Cloud" and accessible through the network of partners (and not only directly from HP).
