HP: Private Cloud-In-A-Box
HP has introduced its first CloudStart offering, an all-in-one offering the company said can be used to deploy an open, flexible, private cloud environment within 30 days. CloudStart is based on HP's Matrix converged infrastructure technology, and includes the hardware, software and services that let businesses build a private cloud, which they can use to provide pay-per-use services. Those services can be provided from a secure portal, and can be scaled as needed. Customers get real-time access to consumption and chargeback reports. CloudStart is delivered HP Cloud Consulting Services.
