Everyone wants to move their IT toward a more flexible, efficient future state. This has driven recent years’ datacenter modernization projects. Organizations are modularizing with blade servers, consolidating workloads onto virtualized environments, moving to scale-out storage, and adopting service-oriented management and deliverly strategies—all part of forward-looking IT convergence and evolution.

Many now look to the idea of “cloud computing” as their ideal future state. The cloud promises theoretically infinite resource pools onto which applications are deployed on demand. Clouds emerged first as a mechanism for Web and network computing, but have rapidly captured the imagination of enterprises and service providers as well. The cloud vision and the underlying demand for flexibility is essentially universal.

But what suits web and network computing isn’t necessarily what enterprises and service providers need. This Illuminata Spotlight discusses HP BladeSystem Matrix, a ready-to-run IT infrastructure, and its use as an out-of-the-box platform for private clouds suited to enterprise IT.
