HP Enhances VirtualSystem for VMware

While virtualization is all the rage this week, with the VMworld conference going on, it's important to remember virtualization relies on underlying physical hardware to be successful.

HP this week debuted three VirtualSystem for VMware solutions that pair server, storage and networking hardware with services for VMware virtualization deployments.

The three models of the VirtualSystem are segmented based on the number of virtual machines they will support. Craig Nunes, VP of Marketing at HP, explained to InternetNews.com that VirtualSystem 1 is targeted at smaller deployments of up to 750 virtual machines. VirtualSystem 1 is a configuration that includes eight HP ProLiant servers and four P4500 LeftHand storage devices. VirtualSystem 2 is a 12-server configuration that uses the HP C-class bladesystem and two bladed P4800 LeftHand storage platforms.
