As it’s a managed service, security and technology updates are applied automatically.Typical target workloads include application development, file print, non-production and quality assurance, SharePoint, unified communication and custom tools, non-critical customer relationship management (CRM), hosted email and enterprise CRM, Oracle CX, data mining and analytics, data warehousing, and SAP applications, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics, and Sage.The new HP Helion Managed VPC solutions are available now with pricing for virtual configurations starting at $76 per month for Bare Metal up to $496 per month for Virtualized Enterprise. Physical configurations start at $800 per month for 8-core physical servers up to $1,000 per month for Physical Enterprise.“We’ve also streamlined the contracting process with a one page cloud contract, to speed the delivery of enterprise cloud solutions,” said Fanella. “This is another example of how HP is committed to making the on-ramp to HP Helion cloud easier, quicker and more efficient.” Related Download Sponsor: NetApp IDC White Paper: Flash Accelerated and Cloud Ready: New Storage Requirements for Enterprise Apps Check out the current virtualization market statistics and find out why flash is essential for virtual computing.
