Affordable Server Virtualization Solution Features HP Blades, VMware

For every IT project you take on, the solution needs to be effective and implemented on time. And—just as important—it needs to be under budget.

When an IT project manager at a prestigious global consulting firm was ready to virtualize several servers in a regional office, he called an IT provider to help. The quote he received was three times his budget.

That’s when Roxy Santiago, enterprise sales rep for HP, suggested that the project manager call MicroAge’s Hunter Boyd.

Immediately, Hunter and MicroAge solutions architect David Determan scheduled a conference call with the client so that they could better understand his goals for the virtualization project.

“We were able to provide a complete virtualization solution that was actually under the client’s budget and was exactly what they needed,” Hunter says.

The solution—which helped the client consolidate all of their data onto one server—included one HP ProLiant BL660c Gen8 blade server and a BLC7000 chassis.

“It’s a great solution for scalability,” David explains. “With space for seven more blades within the existing chassis, they have a lot of room to grow.”

The solution also included HP-branded VMware vSphere. “This allows the client to get unified support for both their blade servers and virtualization software together from the same place,” Hunter adds.

Both Roxy from HP and the client were impressed.

“This is one reason HP is always confident to refer clients to MicroAge,” Roxy says. “They propose and deliver fast IT solutions that are under budget and exactly what the company needs for their server, storage and networking projects.”
