HP OpenVMS virtualization
HP developed its business technology portfolio with the objective of optimizing customers' business outcomes. Companies have recognized that static information technology (IT) infrastructures deployed around the classic paradigm of disparate applications, databases, servers, and networks cannot respond quickly enough to the demands of rapidly changing business and market needs. This model is based on a "one application, one server" philosophy that is fading from popularity due to its ineffectiveness. Such IT environments are too inflexibile, and simply incapable of responding swiftly to rapidly changing business conditions, legislative initiatives, and global demands.
Flexible response to changing business and market needs requires a combination of new and existing components. Current applications must continue to be supported and the current quality of service should be maintained and, ideally, improved. In addition, vast quantities of operational data stored in disparate databases must not be compromised.
HP is leading the delivery of computing resources as services, based on a flexible, virtualized infrastructure. This approach dramatically reduces the response time required to adapt IT infrastructure to changing business and market needs. The result is superior business outcomes: lower business costs, reduced business risk, and accelerated business growth.
