HP’s CloudSystem is now being expanded such that burstable cloud demand can be delivered via Amazon, Saavis or HP’s own cloud services infrastructure. With CloudSystem, enterprises can manage demand for their workloads and move them to public or private cloud infrastructure as needed.
The new HP CloudSystem Matrix software is the orchestration layer, providing a graphical user interface for server admins to setup, deploy and manage cloud workloads.
“The HP Converged Cloud is all about making available a set of choices for our customers,” Magdy Assem, Vice President Horizontal Solutions at HP, told InternetNews.com . “I have yet to find a customer that is going all private or all public in the cloud.”
While HP’s CloudSystem is about developing a hybrid cloud approach it is however somewhat limited from a virtualization approach. Currently HP is only supporting a pair of virtualization technologies.
