Accelerate your move to a Converged Infrastructure
HP Converged Infrastructure delivers a systematic approach to accelerate time-to-business value and accelerate your move to the cloud by helping you overcome the inflexibility and high costs created by data center, application, and IT sprawl and shift more resources to innovation.
This is achieved through a blueprint for the data center of the future that accelerates the provisioning of IT services and applications by integrating servers, storage, networking, security, power, cooling and facilities into shared pools of interoperable resources — all managed through a common management platform. This unique approach helps your business accelerate application delivery in a predictable, repeatable way that makes the most efficient use of IT, facility and staff resources to drive business innovation.
Deploy the data center of the future, today
When you look at the underlying architecture, there are four key pillars that need to converge in the most optimal way. These pillars represent the Converged Infrastructure architectural framework for delivering infrastructure convergence either all at once, or through modular, standards-based building blocks. The result is an environment that is virtualized to increase utilization; resilient to enable the availability needed by mission-critical applications; open to provide choice; orchestrated to speed change and reduce operations cost; and, modular for deployment at your own pace and preference.
HP Virtual Resource Pools
HP Virtual Resource Pools establish a common modular infrastructure of virtualized server, storage, and I/O resources that can be combined, divided, and repurposed to match any application demand quickly and efficiently - optimized for all types of enterprise, cloud, and high-performance computing applications.

HP FlexFabric, part of the HP FlexNetwork architecture portfolio, creates a common, wired-once, virtual I/O network that consolidates Ethernet and storage networks onto a single fabric. This unique, wire-once approach enables your organization to establish a simpler, high-performance, low-latency network that can dramatically lower network complexity and cost, and easily flex connections and performance to meet changes in the workload demands of today's highly-virtualized, large-scale application environments.

HP Matrix Operating Environment establishes a common platform to manage and automate resources—from infrastructure to application. Gains are achieved by unifying all the tools for infrastructure lifecycle management into one command center. This environment is uniquely built from the HP infrastructure, mission-critical, and business service software portfolios to meet the demanding nature of heterogeneous enterprise IT environments across multiple delivery models.
