Get started with CloudSystem
We understand that you may be in a specific stage of your cloud journey. And, you likely have existing investments you need to leverage with your cloud solution.
Because our CloudSystem portfolio offers both integrated solutions and standalone software options, you can choose amongst several on-ramps to your cloud. Now, you can choose the on-ramp that fits your situation. If you want to leverage existing infrastructure and are seeking a quick on-ramp to cloud, we offer two CloudSystem software options.
- Build Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
With CloudSystem Matrix software you can build an IaaS cloud for virtualized environments within a day. The customer-installable software includes a drag and drop service designer, a self-service portal for IT, automated provisioning and capacity planning. The software runs on all servers supported by VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, from both HP and other vendors.
- Build Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
With HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) software you get the industry’s most automated cloud application lifecycle management. You can leverage an open and extensible architecture and obtain a graphical service designer and self-service portal.
For customers who have chosen to employ VMware or Microsoft solutions as part of their cloud strategy, HP offers an integrated CloudSystem solution optimized for partner cloud environments. HP CloudSystem also supports the choice to integrate with the partner cloud management software through the CloudSystem Matrix autoflexing* capability. With autoflexing, CloudSystem automatically allocates your physical infrastructure to VMware vCloud or Microsoft System Center clouds based on demands, reducing the complexity of building and managing clouds.
* Autoflexing capability with Microsoft will be available in 1H 2013.
Create customized catalogs of application services with Cloud Maps
With HP Cloud Maps, you can quickly build a comprehensive catalogue of applications for simple deployment with HP CloudSystem. You can reduce the time to deliver a new application from weeks or months, often to less than 1 hour. HP Cloud Maps are templates and additional content based on industry leading intellectual property. HP Cloud Maps result from thousands of hours of development and testing, and decades of close partnerships between HP, our key ISVs, systems integrators (SIs), and customers.
