HP has introduced HP Cloudline a new family of compute platforms, which will allow the service providers hyperscale IT architectures to maximize data center efficiency and increase cloud service agility. With this new solution HP aims to extend its open infrastructure vision from cloud and network switches to include servers.
Talking about the HP Cloudline, Vikram K, Director, Servers, HP India, said, “The business success of today’s service providers is directly correlated with their ability to cost-effectively acquire and operate their IT infrastructure to meet customer demand. Built on open-design principles with extreme scalability, HP Cloudline servers help service providers reduce infrastructure cost and accelerate service delivery to improve business performance.”
This new solution from HP is the result of the joint venture of HP wuth Foxconn.

The HP Cloudline systems are built on an open design philosophy using open components to increase adaptability and facilitate IT integration. It also supports open management tools, such as OpenStack technology, and easily integrates into a multi-vendor environment.
