Introduction
Today’s IT managers face enormous pressure and challenges in running their data centers. The business demands constant productivity increases and new services, while IT remains responsible for balancing budget and resource constraints. Conflicting demands often put IT between a rock and a hard place. While cloud services offer some respite from infrastructure management challenges, most businesses are compelled to keep many workloads on premises, whether for performance or security reasons.

This means they must optimize their own on-premises infrastructure in order to meet business demands. Many service providers have stepped up to help enterprises manage their on-premises data centers, including hardware vendors, managed and professional services providers, and even cloud service providers. However, few adequately address the need to efficiently manage on-premises—and often hybrid—environments while reducing capital expenditures. Enter HP.

HP provides infrastructure and support services that assist in effectively managing the on-premises data center. One such service, HP Datacenter Care, offers a suite of services, including operational support, infrastructure automation, environment integration and private cloud support for both enterprises and service providers. The most innovative service in the Datacenter Care portfolio is the HP Flexible Capacity component. HP Flexible Capacity offers enterprises a new way to procure and manage on-premises infrastructure with the flexibility and cost efficiencies of hosted cloud resources. The service also allows selected channel partners to retain the traditional commission structures that selling on-premises equipment entails, while enabling them to offer customers monthly billing for infrastructure resources.

In this SPIE, Stratecast explores HP’s Datacenter Care service, with particular attention on the Flexible Capacity component. We examine the service, how it benefits both customers and channel partners, and why this offer can be a market disruptor.
