» English

香港,2012年9月21日 — HP 今天宣佈以HP與Microsoft的聯合解決方案擴展其融合雲端(Converged Cloud)產品組合,從而簡化及提升客戶在私有雲端旅程中各個範疇。

HP與Microsoft 的聯合私有雲端方案(Joint Private Cloud initiative)包括基於廣泛的聯合技術開發的優化及預先整合解決方案,並提供一站式的生命週期銷售及支援。

機構被雲端的靈活性及經濟效益所吸引,卻面對如何迅速實行雲端及處理多項風險,如數據遺失、保安問題及供應商鎖定等。透過提供清晰及可靠的途徑,以及單一廠商之客戶體驗,HP與Microsoft能大大簡化並加速演進至雲端運算。

HP與Microsoft Corp.之間的協議建基於HP融合雲端策略,把雲端的力量擴展至跨基礎架構、應用程式及資訊等領域,為客戶提供選擇、信心及一致性。作為業界首個建基於單一公開架構之策略及組合,HP融合雲端容許私有、託管及公用雲端以至傳統IT的任何組合。

全新的HP與Microsoft 聯合私有雲端方案包括:

  • 利用全新的預先整合解決方案及參考架構,加速展開雲端部署
  • 透過全面的管理整合,簡化跨實體及虛擬環境之管理
  • 直接從HP取得Windows Server 2012 及 Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1的可靠單一來源

HP香港董事總經理陳珊珊表示:「隨著客戶轉移至私有雲端,他們正尋找簡單的方法以降低風險、提高靈活性,並節省更多成本。透過與Microsoft這個合作關係,我們能為客戶提供可靠的單一來源體驗,讓他們得以輕易地邁向雲端。」

Microsoft 的Windows Server市務部企業副總裁Michael Park表示:「建立自雲端的Windows Server 2012對企業而言是一個改革性躍進。HP融合雲端解決方案配備Windows Server 2012為客戶帶來超越虛擬化的清晰途徑,加快其雲端之旅。憑藉該項私有雲端協議及逾三十年的可靠合作經驗, HP與 Microsoft均致力協助客戶體驗雲端的優勢並促進機構的成功。」

加快採用私有雲端的步伐
經擴展的HP融合雲端產品包括HP CloudSystem與Microsoft解決方案之整合,能協助客戶把虛擬資源迅速轉換為自助的私有及混合雲端環境。透過提供HP融合基礎架構、HP雲端管理、Windows Server 2012 及Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1的預先整合解決方案,HP CloudSystem 為Microsoft優化能加快實現價值的時間。 

憑藉HP CloudSystem 為Microsoft優化,客戶可利用建基於最佳實踐的可靠樣板(如HP Cloud Maps),簡化及快速執行服務設計及供應之程序,以及消除近乎所有關於雲端部署的常見風險。該解決方案亦包括增加儲存管理效率透過HP 3PAR 自主精簡供應(autonomic thin provisioning)、自動數據分層及非干擾性的數據移動功能。

此外,HP與Microsoft 亦一直合作,為尋求經濟地開始採用雲端運算之中型企業提供兩節點(two-node)的HP部門式私有雲端參考結構(HP Departmental Private Cloud Reference Architecture)。該解決方案結合HP融合基礎架構、分享之動態遷移 (“shared nothing” live migration)、Hyper-V replica 及Windows Server 2012的其他突破性功能,在價格和簡易程度,以及性能、可管理性與高可用度之間取得最佳的平衡。

創新管理
經整合的HP CloudSystem方案包括全面互通的HP Insight Management 與Microsoft System Center,讓System Center可部署、監控及更新HP基礎架構,令管理人員毋須在多個控制台之間轉換。

HP與Microsoft之整合讓企業能夠:

  • 透過HP Insight Control與Microsoft System Center之間逾1,400 個整合點整合運作,從而節省時間及培訓成本(1)
  • 藉著非干擾性的叢集感應固件及HP ProLiant伺服器之驅動程式更新,減低風險及免除按時停機之需要
  • 利用HP 3PAR及Windows Server 2012之卸載數據傳輸(offload data transfer, ODX),提供快七倍的體積創建(volume creation)時間及即時儲存遷移,對網絡的影響減至最低(2)
  • 讓IT部門得以在不干擾終端用戶的情況下移動相距達一百公里之地點的虛擬機器

消除複雜性
客戶可直接向HP 或HP的特約經銷商直接購買整套HP CloudSystem optimized for Windows Server 及 Microsoft System Center。客戶可透過單一聯絡點獲得HP-Microsoft解決方案(包括採購、部署、整合、維修及支援),從而提升客戶體驗並節省解決問題的時間。此外, HP將與客戶現有的Microsoft Enterprise Agreement相約價錢提供Windows Server 2012及Systems Center 2012,讓 HP能以符合價格水平,同時提供端對端解決方案交易之價值。

HP部門式私有雲端參考結構 

HP部門式私有雲端參考結構透過HP渠道夥伴而進行優化的交付。作為HP與Microsoft在雲端及管理之多年協議的一部份,HP與Microsoft設立了資金用作夥伴雲端計劃、獎賞、推廣、開創需求、銷售培訓及HP部門式私有雲端部署。

售價及推出日期
HP客戶購買包括Windows Server 及Microsoft System Center的雲端及虛擬解決方案,HP的價格將與其現有的企業(Enterprise) 或Select Plus協議相約。

指定的HP融合雲端解決方案,包括 HP 部門式私有雲端參考結構現已由HP 及其全球渠道夥伴推出。支援Systems Center 2012 SP1之解決方案則將於2013年初推出。
