Virtual for all the right reasons

Karen Walker, VP Marketing,
Technology Solutions Group, Americas
Hewlett-Packard Company

IT leasing makes sense in tough times

Virtualization won’t reach its full potential until it’s approached with a big-picture perspective. It’s already shown what it can do for IT efficiency and capabilities, but with the right approach it can do much more.

In this edition of Transforming Your Enterprise we look at how to rethink virtualization so that it can support more mission-critical workloads and improve the delivery of IT services. To reinforce that perspective, we highlight management tools that keep cost and complexity to a minimum, lifecycle-­based virtualization services, and systems built from the ground up for virtualization.

Then learn how Fair Isaac virtualized its infrastructure, rationalizing data centers and increasing responsiveness while delivering efficiencies in such areas as power and cooling.

Like the ‘green’ sound of that? Meet Kaiser Permanente, which turns to HP for products that lead the industry in (EPEAT™) Gold listings, for HP’s unmatched product recycling programs and for partnership in reducing packaging and waste—just as important to this environmental leader as the fact that HP solutions are the best business choice.

Saving space, power and cost, while making agile enterprises even more agile. That kind of potential is worth finding out about.
