HP Announces iVirtualization

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP today announced technologies that integrate virtualization capabilities into the HP ProLiant server platform, allowing customers to rapidly and simply virtualize their server environments.

Called HP ProLiant iVirtualization, these technologies allow businesses of all sizes to lower costs, improve productivity and better allocate resources across their server infrastructures.

HP has joined with the industrys largest virtualization vendors – VMware, Citrix and Microsoft – to develop these technologies, which integrate virtualization with a broad range of HP ProLiant and BladeSystem platforms.

iVirtualization is integrated directly into the ProLiant server using features that leverage customers’ existing server management tools. As such, when a server is powered on, it is automatically and immediately configured into a fully capable virtualization environment.

This enables companies to adopt virtualization with greater speed and simplicity. Moreover, by taking advantage of HP Insight Control, iVirtualization increases business agility, improves quality of service and streamlines infrastructure management.
