“HP and VMware have a proven history of delivering solutions to meet these goals and laying the groundwork for future innovation. The combination of HP Converged Infrastructure and services with VMware virtualization provides the technology backbone that now enables us to spend only 20 percent of our time on operations and the rest innovating on a state-of-the-art stadium that entertains fans, contributes to the bottom line and supports more than 30 businesses running inside,” said Bill Haggard, director of enterprise infrastructure for the Dallas Cowboys.

“We partnered with HP and VMware to integrate an automated private cloud environment into our existing infrastructure in less than 30 days, providing compute power and storage to several departments with growing needs, as well as a standards-based environment for private cloud research,” said Professor Greg Ganger, Carnegie Mellon University.

“Samsung has been cooperating with HP in building the most energy efficient, high-performance cloud computing platform available for Carnegie Mellon University. Our high-density Green DDR3 memory technology has provided over 70 percent power savings to Carnegie for its private cloud infrastructure, compared to alternative memory solutions,” said Jim Elliott, vice president, memory marketing and product planning, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.

“Intel often collaborates with premier universities around the globe to conduct cutting-edge research in emerging areas of cloud computing and we are pleased to join HP and Carnegie Mellon University in expanding our global research footprint. In addition to these research efforts, we are working with HP via the Intel Cloud Builder program to develop solutions supporting federated, automated, and client-aware clouds. By teaming with academia, technology providers, and end users, Intel is able to respond more quickly to the technology requirements of cloud deployments by building features and capabilities into our product line up that promote efficiency, security and simplicity in an open architecture. Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI), and Advanced Virtualization capabilities are just a few examples of the features now available in the new Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series that Carnegie Mellon will be able to take advantage of as part of this research effort.” Boyd Davis, vice president and general manager, Intel Data Center Group.
