HP is aiming to help customers transform to a hybrid infrastructure with its Helion CloudSystem 9.0 and ConvergedSystem 700.
Now in general availability, the CloudSystem 9.0 has incorporated Helion OpenStack and its Helion Development Platform. This means it is designed to deliver an integrated open source infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service offering.
The offering can be integrated with existing IT investments in order to move traditional applications to the cloud. Additionally, it helps to develop and deploy cloud-native applications that use multiple development languages.
Bill Hilf, SVP, HP Helion Product and Service Management, said: "Enterprises are attracted by the promise of the cloud, however for many, the success of a cloud initiative hinges on the ability to integrate existing and new technology.
"HP Helion CloudSystem 9.0 allows organizations to leverage existing infrastructure and expertise, manage traditional applications as cloud services, while supporting modern application development and delivery methods necessary to transition to a hybrid infrastructure."
The system allows IT to manage mixed cloud environments. It also offers OpenStack software and Cloud Foundry application programming interfaces to access and control cloud resources.
Multiple hypervisors are supported, including Microsoft Hyper-V, Red Hat KVM and VMware ESXi.
HP ConvergedSystem 700 is built to be flexible and scalable and is delivered already pre-integrated with CloudSystem 9.0.
