VMware & HP: Delivering on SDDC Vision

To keep up with rapidly changing business needs, organizations are turning to virtualization and cloud computing to become more agile and boost resource efficiency. This has led to the concept of the software-defined data center (SDDC), which can dynamically source virtual data centers from hardware residing in multiple locations, allowing computing resources to be used in unprecedented ways. VMware and HP are leveraging our experience as market leaders, our expertise built over 12 years of partnership, and our extensive investment in joint research and development to deliver on the vision of the SDDC with joint offerings like HP VirtualSystem VS3 for VMware 2.2 and HP CloudSystem optimized for VMware.
