Double Virtual Machine Density

HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage was built to enhance the benefits of VMware vSphere by exceeding the demands server virtualization puts on storage infrastructure. The broad range of HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage products deliver increased storage efficiency, utilization and performance for VMware vSphere virtualization environments.

Transform IT to Enable Agile Service

By virtualizing the traditional elements of the data center and abstracting them from the underlying hardware, the software-defined data center (SDDC) creates pools of virtualized resources that can be served up on demand, enabling you to:

  • Create an incredibly flexible—and incredibly simple—IT infrastructure
  • Boost agility and resource efficiency; IT can now dynamically provision individual “virtual data centers” with just a few mouse clicks
  • Simplify ownership with a single point of accountability and support for the entire solution

Everything You Need to Virtualize

Infrastructure virtualization can help you reduce costs, improve application availability and simplify IT management, but getting started can be challenging. HP Flex-Bundles for VMware vSphere with Operations Management include everything you need to get started with virtualization, so you can:

  • Choose the solution that’s right for you from a selection of three predefined and validated configurations
  • Jump-start your project with simplified solutions that are pre-defined and validated
  • Simplify management using VMware vSphere with Operations Management integrated with HP OneView
  • Trust the market leaders in virtualization and cloud to help you realize the benefits of virtualization and cloud computing through joint development, testing and performance engineering

The Industry’s First Federated Network

Manual network configuration is time and resource intensive, as well as error-prone. The HP-VMware Networking Solution is the industry’s first multivendor, global federation to deliver interoperability, openness, automation and agility across physical and virtual data center networks.

  • Enjoy a centralized view, unified automation, visibility and control of the complete data center network from a single pane-of-glass for improved agility, monitoring and troubleshooting
  • Scale data center resources in minutes, not months, by automating network provisioning
  • Optimize your mix of endpoints with a hybrid approach that transparently blends physical and virtual devices under a common control plane
  • Trim administrative costs and benefit from standards including OpenStack to reduce spend

Protect Physical and Virtual IT Assets

VMware and HP provide a tightly integrated, real-time security solution, built with VMware vCloud Networking and Security and HP TippingPoint software. The solution monitors traffic on both the physical and virtual network, and provides integrated security management to help you:

  • Protect physical and virtual data centers with vCloud Networking and Security firewall services, and HP TippingPoint intrusion protection systems (IPS)
  • Reduce risk and simplify compliance with vCloud Networking and Security and automated discovery of sensitive data to help meet compliance audits
  • Simplify security management with HP TippingPoint Virtual Management Center integration with VMware vCenter Server

A Faster, Simpler Way to Virtualize

HP ConvergedSystem 300 for Virtualization supporting VMware and HP ConvergedSystem 700 for VMware melds HP Converged Infrastructure with VMware virtualization. These complete, pre-configured, optimized and tested solutions drive out complexity to deliver scalable performance, high availability and manageability for any virtualized application.

  • Get faster time-to-value and lower deployment risk via standardized configurations you can easily set up to run right out of the box
  • Easily procure, manage and support integrated systems built on standards-based infrastructure blocks, with tightly integrated management capabilities

Virtualize Faster With Less Risk, Cost

HP Converged Infrastructure with VMware is built on industry-leading HP servers, storage, networking, consulting and support services to provide the ideal foundation for VMware software. Together, HP and VMware help you:

  • Protect and optimize current investments with a clear upgrade path wherever and whenever your virtualization plans lead—including the cloud
  • Obtain HP storage that was designed for VMware virtualization
  • Enjoy end-to-end management from a single pane-of-glass with HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter Server centralizing management for HP ProLiant servers, HP storage, HP networking and virtual machines together in the new VMware vSphere
