HP announced its converged cloud solution claiming it to be the industry’s first hybrid delivery approach.

The solution is based on a common architecture spanning traditional IT, private, managed and public clouds.

“HP Converged Cloud enables enterprises to incorporate a blend of public, private and managed cloud services with their existing IT to create a seamless hybrid environment that rapidly adapts to their changing requirements,” said Neelam Dhawan, Managing Director, HP India.

The idea behind the solution is that enterprises will now be able to create an open, standards-based architecture supporting multiple hypervisors, operating systems and development environments as well as a heterogeneous infrastructure and an extensible partner ecosystem.

The company said that its public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service offering, called HP Cloud Services will be rolled out in May.

For clients who do not wish to manage their own clouds, HP announced its HP Enterprise Cloud Services that provide offerings for private clouds, continuity services and unified communications.
