Also focusing on workload-optimized solutions, flexible business models and partnerships

MUMBAI, INDIA: HP has announced a new portfolio that it claims is designed specifically for the needs of service providers to create differentiated services, increase speed and agility, and drive business growth.

According to IDC, a majority of organizations will stop managing their own infrastructure over the next five years. Instead, these organizations will make greater use of dedicated and shared cloud offerings in service provider data centers. To capitalize on these changes, service providers – software-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service, telco/communication service providers, managed hosters, and consumer service providers – need an efficient infrastructure that is highly scalable and supports business growth.

They also need flexible business models that better align costs to revenue. Additionally, they need to be able to address customer’s increasing expectations for service level agreements.

HP’s new workload-optimized solutions, flexible business models and partnerships help service providers launch differentiated services faster in the market and stay competitive, it adds in the announcement.

“Service providers must adjust to meet ever-increasing customer demands for simplicity, security and availability – they can no longer compete on cost alone,” said Vikram K, Director, Servers, HP India. “HP is delivering systems, built on open-design principles, combined with services and solutions that allow service providers to move fast, launch new services and grow their business in a sustainable way.”

The company illustrates this with example of a range of servers that can meet the unique compute requirements of service providers. “The new HP Cloudline server family, which is a result of the HP-Foxconn joint venture, is a portfolio of basic, cost-focused and customizable compute platforms that offer capacity on demand, flexible operations and low costs. Built on open-design principles, HP Cloudline servers support open management tools and leverage common industry interfaces in hardware and firmware. HP Cloudline servers support delivery, deployment and management at an extreme scale and fit easily into multi-vendor environments. HP Cloudline servers are also optimized for HP Helion OpenStack. HP Helion OpenStack provides an open, extensible and highly resilient enterprise-grade cloud platform based on OpenStack technology, the leading open source cloud computing platform, which complements the architectural design and benefits of HP Cloudline.” the company explained.

“The industries we serve – including regulated industries like financial services and life sciences – require secure collaboration solutions that make it safe and easy to share valuable information anywhere, on any device,” said Ron Hovsepian, Intralinks CEO. “HP’s leadership in cloud with HP Helion and service provider ready solutions gives us yet another strategic advantage in delivering world-class, secure content collaboration solutions to enterprises worldwide.”
