HP Enterprise Group announced in the announcement of its hybrid cloud and Microsoft cooperation in the new details, in the future cooperation in HP will provide a new hardware product, the product will integrate Microsoft's cloud platform and its related software products, together for the enterprise to build a hardware and software products.
Enterprise users will be able to buy from the HP super fusion architecture 250 series of servers for its own cloud data center, the server based on ProLiant HP technology and packaged the Azure standard service software based on Microsoft products,
In addition, HPE will be the Azure's cloud platform and services for migration adaptation, so that it can be applied to all HP servers, so that the existing enterprise HP customers can easily use Azure to build a hybrid cloud deployments.
HPE will also bring more life cycle management capabilities, Azure's big data and security software products as an important part of cooperation. HP Center Quality and LoadRunner services, will also be deployed in the Microsoft Azure cloud applications market, corporate users will get HP's software services on Microsoft's cloud services.
In the cloud related business consulting, HPE plans to certify 5000 people's Azure cloud architect team, and its global service consulting team to provide services for corporate customers.
At the company level, Microsoft will join the HP enterprise group's infrastructure partner program, and System's Center HPE and OneView integrated management tool integration, the two sides in the software level to carry out in-depth integration, thinking that business customers to provide integrated solutions. In turn, HPE will start selling Azure cloud services, Microsoft's enterprise mobility suite and Office 365 software to join Microsoft's cloud solutions provider plans.
HP a few days ago announced that it will officially close the Helion public cloud services in January 31, 2015. It is not clear whether HPE wants Azure as his only cloud platform, whether there will be plans to compete with Microsoft's competitors, such as Amazon AWS, Google's cloud platform, etc..
So, HPE and Microsoft's cooperation in the end is an exclusive, or just the Microsoft as a partner, which has a great impact on the HP as well as the entire cloud computing market. According to my estimate, the two sides will in the current cooperation under the framework of close to, if subsequent cooperation is not smooth, or the market does not buy it, perhaps HP and Microsoft's cooperation will be at variance. For the company, the market will always be the first.
