HP Launches CloudStart Services

HP introduced a "CloudStart" solution to simplify and accelerate private cloud deployments. HP CloudStart consists of hardware, software and services to enable pay-per-use services for infrastructure in their private clouds. This is enabled via real-time access to consumption and chargeback reports. HP clients will also be able to integrate their private clouds with third-party enterprise portals, public cloud services, usage billing packages and multiplatform resource management.

""To better serve the needs of their enterprises, clients are asking us to help them become internal service providers with the ability to deliver applications through a highly flexible private cloud environment," said Gary M. Budzinski, senior vice president and general manager, Technology Services, HP. "With CloudStart, HP is enabling clients to optimize applications for private cloud computing today, while providing a platform for a comprehensive, open and hybrid environment in the future."
