Hewlett-Packard and VMware announced Monday new collaborations between the two companies designed to simplify adoption of hybrid clouds and the “software-defined data center.”
 
The companies announced HP Helion OpenStack will support enterprise-class VMware virtualization technologies, and the availability of the standalone HP-VMware networking solution, as well as the solution delivered as part of HP Converged Systems.
 
HP and VMware said their networking solution is “the industry’s first federated networking solution, designed to provide customers unified automation of, and visibility into, their physical and virtual data center networks.”
 
“Enterprise customers have given clear and strong direction that they need solutions to enable them to build hybrid cloud environments that leverage their existing investments and provide choice and flexibility in the future,” said Bill Hilf, senior vice president of cloud products and services at HP. “With this partnership, HP and VMware are meeting these enterprise requirements and are committing to work together to offer a compelling solution set to meet customer needs.”
 
The companies said they would be demoing their collaborative technology solutions at the VMworld San Francisco conference, on Aug. 24-28.
