HP today announced HP VirtualSystem for VMware, a highly-optimized, turnkey solution that gives organizations a virtualized infrastructure that speeds implementation and provides a foundation for cloud computing.


As virtualization has gained adoption, multi-tier network architectures, virtual sprawl, inflexible storage, unpredictable workloads and security concerns have increased complexity and limited broad deployment. To help midsize to large organizations address these challenges, HP VirtualSystem for VMware includes virtualized HP Networking solutions, HP Converged Storage, HP BladeSystem servers, HP Insight software with on-site installation services.


Built on HP Converged Infrastructure, HP VirtualSystem features architectural innovations and services that help eliminate virtualization complexity, consolidate IT infrastructure and improve performance, enabling clients to:

  • Accelerate virtual machine mobility by up to 40 percent while doubling throughput and reducing network recovery time by more than 500 times(1) with the new HP FlexFabric virtualized networking solution;
  • Cut capacity requirements by 50 percent, double virtual machine density(2), and speed deployment with HP LeftHand and HP 3PAR Storage Systems;
  • Improve virtual server operations with HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter™ Server, which alerts IT administrators and allows for remote troubleshooting and management;
  • Align virtualization strategy and investments to business goals with consulting, planning, preintegration, deployment and support services from HP Technology Services and HP ServiceONE partners.

“Virtualization has become mainstream for clients, but there are obstacles to broad deployment,” said Kelvin Yeung, General Manager, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, HP Hong Kong. “With HP VirtualSystem for VMware, clients can simplify and scale their virtualization deployments to provide a clear path to the cloud.”


“Companies need solutions that enable them to move from siloed stacks of infrastructure to pools of technology resources that can be shared and delivered as application services in real time,” said Gary Green, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. “HP VirtualSystem for VMware helps customers streamline their virtualization projects today and transition to cloud computing in the future.”
