HP this week released a suite of integrated product offerings that it said will simplify operations and accelerate IT resource consolidation, enabling organizations to streamline their delivery of mission-critical application services.

 

According to the company, chief information officers must ensure high availability of their most critical applications, while simplifying management of the technology infrastructure and reducing costs.

 

The products include the new HP StorageWorks P9500 Disk Array and upgrades to the HP-UX portfolio for Integrity systems.  

 

“Enterprises need to simplify their technology environments and reduce overall costs, but cannot afford to sacrifice reliability, availability or security of mission-critical applications,” said David Roberson, senior vice president and general manager of StorageWorks.

 

 “Many enterprise clients are struggling with how to improve availability levels, automate disaster recovery, and eliminate planned downtime,” said Donna Scott, a vice president with Gartner. ”Since failures do occur, the key is limiting the extent of the outage in order to provide consistently high service levels to applications enabling critical business processes.”
