The new "work" paradigm
Until recently, “going to work” required a long commute to a physical office building. Then, as wireless technology came of age, the commute became considerably shorter—often walking from one room in the home to another or from home to a client site. The flexibility of a remote working model is appealing to many employees, enabling them to be online and productive during more hours of the day or night. Enticed by these increased productivity levels, employers were eager to provide laptops for their new mobile workforce.
Today, however, workers want much more. They want a “work wherever you are” model that supports the most advanced productivity tools available today—including their own notebooks, tablets, netbooks, and smartphones—enabling them to work at any
time, from any location, using any device. This includes e-mail and corporate applications.
HP and VMware have the solution that securely and cost-effectively enables BYOD and the mobile workforce—delivered as a complete,
simple, cost-effective reference architecture (RA). Depending on how many users you want to support, you can choose from our Enterprise or SMB reference architectures. Fully tested, pre-sized, and optimized with VMware View, these blueprints will simplify and hasten your deployments.
HP Enterprise Reference Architecture with VMware View
This proven blueprint has been tested with numerous combinations of storage, networking and server blades to optimize performance for client virtualization. In addition to capitalizing on the increased performance and user density of the HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8 Server Blade, the reference architecture also benefits from integrated storage and networking.
Just have 100-600 users to support with client virtualization? HP now provides a reference architecture for smaller installations for a simple, easy-to-install solution.
HP SMB Reference Architecture with VMware View
This appliance-like solution enables you to rapidly deploy one or more HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Servers with integrated storage, HP StoreVirtual VSA Software, HP IO Accelerators, and VMware View to support a prescribed number of productivity workers
