Accelerate to the Cloud with HP and Microsoft

HP Departmental Private Cloud provides a Reference Architecture combining HP Converged Infrastructure, Microsoft Windows Server 2012, and Microsoft System Center to define a simple 2-node private cloud for mid-size businesses or branch office environments.

  • Improve resource utilization
  • Enable rapid design and deployment of standardized IT services
  • Provide a cost effective mechanism for disaster recovery

With the Departmental Private Cloud, HP and Microsoft have created a solution targeted at IT environments of 50 to 500 users. The reference architecture contains two ProLiant DL360e Gen8 servers, the HP P2000 G3 MSA Array System, and two HP E2910-24G al switches.

The HP Departmental Private Cloud has been optimized for Windows Server 2012. With new features like shared nothing live migration, NIC teaming, and Hyper-V replica, and the new multi-device server manager, organizations have everything they need to build and manage a virtualized or private cloud environment.

This Reference Architecture combines HP and Microsoft® best practices for virtualization and cloud deployment. It brings together the latest of HP servers, storage, and networking to deliver excellent performance. Blending the best of both HP and Microsoft technologies
