Essar picks HP’s converged infra solution

Mumbai: IT major, Hewlett-Packard (HP), on Monday said that Essar has selected its Converged Infrastructure solution to build a shared services environment for selected applications across its group companies.

This will allow Essar to improve time-to-market and reduce cost by leveraging a flexible IT model where resources can be provisioned on the fly as per business demand, an HP press release said here.

“With HP Converged Infrastructure solutions, Essar will now be able to use a shared services environment where resources can be consumed on demand," HP India, Converged Infrastructure and Datacenter Transformation, Country Head, Santanu Ghose, said.

Using HP’s converged infrastructure solution, Essar is enabling a share services model by pooling together all its IT resources into a highly virtualised environment. Specific application templates have been developed to automatically provision resources for every new business user. Businesses can then request IT services on the fly by using a built-in self service portal, the release said.
