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 now other manufacturer’s systems.
Remove the constraints of traditional IT. HP Flexible Capacity enables you to provision new capacity in minutes, not weeks, without restarting the procurement process for each new request. FC is a component of HP Datacenter Care; so you get the enterprise-grade support that you need within the datacenter– a personalized team onsite, a quality call experience delivered globally and backed by Centers of Expertise, and the mix of proactive and reactive services that you need for your systems.
Flexible Capacity is a “0 capital” model for IT, since you pay for a service. We provide onsite infrastructure and services billed on a monthly basis. With advanced metering, your charges reflect your actual usage so that you can optimize cash flow. And it’s efficient - you avoid paying for capacity until you need it.

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.
