HP Cloud Service
Based on the HP Converged Infrastructure and HP Cloud System solutions, HP, in conjunction with SHI, will provide a “private community cloud” suite of infrastructure services that are designed to meet required levels of security, performance and availability for higher education. HP and SHI will operate these services for the Internet2 community. SHI Cloud combines best-of-breed technologies to create the most secure, high-performance, and industrial grade cloud offering with private, dedicated, managed or multi-tenant options.

HP Service Roadmap
HP and SHI International are expanding the current proof-of-concept focused on providing improved cloud infrastructure services to better understand the needs of the higher education community for cloud infrastructure services and to most effectively provision compute and storage cloud solutions through Internet2 NET+ Services. The proof-of-concept was initially kicked off in November with the following universities: Indiana University, Penn State, University of Notre Dame and the University of Utah. Extensive collaboration between the groups has resulted in several very near-term enhancements to the offering, including virtual machine cloning capabilities, increased network bandwidth and resiliency, InCommon integration and IPv6.
