Datacenter Care Flexible Capacity

HP Flexible Capacity (FC) delivers a Public Cloud experience, with the benefits of on-premise IT. Get the ease of start-up, flexible pricing models, Opex treatment, scalability, and flexible usage for compute, storage, networking and software infrastructure. And gain the benefits of staying on-premise or using a hybrid delivery model: retain control & security, include legacy workloads, reduce latency, manage data location, and maintain an enterprise-grade support experience. Flexible Capacity supports HP hardware and software, and other manufacturer’s systems.

Flexible Capacity is hybrid-ready

You should have your resources available without seams - no barriers between using on-premises IT and public cloud resources. Now you can. Flexible Capacity can now include resources in the HP Helion Public Cloud as part of the pool of available capacity for you to tap into. And as you extend workloads to the public cloud, HP is there to support you with HP Hybrid Cloud Support. And now we can set up the metering and pay per use either the usual way, or per Virtual Machine. You'll work with one support partner, one pool of capacity, one invoice, as you adjust your workloads to match the growth of the business. Match your resources and your expenses to business outcomes.

If you are a service provider, you need flexible business solutions designed to improve revenue streams and time-to-market. HP Flexible Capacity gives you the ability to expand or shrink costs with your customers’ usage, without using capital. You can drive operational efficiency, thanks to the Datacenter Care features that are part of the Flexible Capacity.
