Accelerate private cloud adoption to address common IT issues

managed services for private cloud

While a dedicated private cloud may address their security and availability concerns, adopting an in-house private cloud creates new challenges for internal IT, like increased IT complexity, huge learning curves, lengthy deployment times and large upfront costs.

For many organizations, building a private cloud is a high priority. But, Forrester research states that internal private cloud deployments are falling short of expectations - revealing a clear lack of understanding about what it takes to build and operate such solutions. Resource constraints and technology complexity have contributed to these failed attempts.

HP Helion Managed Private Cloud helps you get to a private cloud solution faster, while remaining productive from a day-to-day operations standpoint. We’re able to securely provide a unique converged infrastructure platform for consolidation, virtualization and automation of your server, storage and network resource pools and introduce IT flexibility into an inflexible environment with speed and effectiveness.

We offer a purpose-built, pre-integrated solution using market-leading HP hardware, software and services, supported by thousands of experienced cloud consultants and IT experts with 1000+ unique CloudSystem implementations and more than 200 managed cloud clients. Backed by a “system-level” SLA, our solution provides a solid foundation for enterprises to package and deliver their own IaaS, PaaS or SaaS to meet internal or external customer IT requirements.

Increase utilization and reduce costs via a shared IT services model

Let us help you spread your IT costs across the organization – enabling your internal customers to provision, use and buy only what they need from your shared pool of resources.

Underutilized, decentralized IT assets are commonplace within most enterprises, but shared IT service models are not. HP Helion Managed Private Cloud offers internal IT brokers the ability to securely and confidently address multi-departmental infrastructure requirements using a single cloud solution. Our private cloud solution can address legacy equipment replacement requirements, accelerate internal efforts to consolidate, virtualize and automate workloads, and enable IT to serve the needs of multiple internal organizations via a single, centralized “shared IT services” model.

We centralize IT assets enabling you to consume and share the expense of physical or virtual compute, storage, network and backup resources across multiple departments. This creates the foundation for an enterprise-wide shared IT services model, enabling the CIO or IT manager to become the broker of IT services for their organization – improving IT resource utilization, reducing IT costs, and improving IT scalability and flexibility.

Our solution enables centralized IT governance, IT provisioning, metering and billing for multiple departments across your organization via a single solution.


Broker IT services for your enterprise

HP Helion Managed Private Cloud leverages our Aggregation Platform for SaaS (AP4SaaS) software to enable you to broker services from inside and outside your organization. AP4SaaS serves as a mediation layer between the internal service provider's systems, the cloud services consume and offer, and their end customers' environments.
