HP has announced today that they’re releasing new virtualization software
The software — enhancements to the HP Virtual Server Environment (VSE) for HP Integrity servers — optimizes server resource utilization by providing a pool of virtual servers that can grow or shrink based on business needs. A key component of HP’s Enterprise Storage and Server Software portfolio, the HP Virtual Server Environment and associated services allow customers to reduce costs and increase agility by simplifying planning, implementation and management in a virtualized IT environment.
They’re also targeting a major competitor in this space as they bundle tools to help customers move from Sun to HP equipment
To assist customers in planning migrations and consolidations to HP Integrity servers, HP Integrity Essentials Capacity Advisor can import data collected from Sun servers by HP Performance Agent. In addition, new trending capabilities for this intuitive tool let customers simulate future usage patterns when planning consolidations for HP-UX, Windows® and Linux.
