The new enterprise IT mandate—hybrid IT


Hybrid IT is the integration of private cloud, public cloud and traditional IT. With it, IT organizations will be able to provide the control, manageability, and responsiveness required to be a core part of the business value delivery chain.
In some cases, it may be best to deploy in a public cloud. In others, it may be best to deploy in a private cloud, or a mix of private and public cloud alongside traditional IT. The main point is HP can help ensure your applications are deployed to the right deployment model, based on your business requirements. Regardless of delivery method, HP CloudSystem customers can rapidly design and deploy cloud services in a multi-vendor, multi-platform using tools that have been designed by HP and the open-source community to be extensible and flexible.

HP CloudSystem Enterprise is offered as an HP ConvergedSystem solution - pre-tested, pre-integrated, engineered, and optimized for cloud – so you can spend less time getting ready for cloud, and more time building new cloud services.
