Cloud Computing: HP Has Framework for One-Stop Data Center Transformation

HP has announced a comprehensive service that simplifies the process of designing and building data centers

As more companies look toward building or expanding data centers, HP has announced a comprehensive service that simplifies the process of designing and building data centers by offering design, construction and project management from a single vendor.

The new HP Critical Facilities Implementation service (CFI) enables clients to realize faster time-to-innovation and lower cost of ownership by providing a single integrator that delivers all the elements of a data center design-build project from start to finish. An extension of the HP Converged Infrastructure strategy, HP CFI is an architectural blueprint that allows clients to align and share pools of interoperable resources. [Disclosure: HP is a sponsor of BriefingsDirect podcasts.]



A recent Gartner survey indicated that 46 percent of respondents reported that they will build one or more new data centers in the next two years, and 54 percent expected that they will need to expand an existing data center in that time frame.

“Constructing a data center is an enormous undertaking for any business, and taking an integrated approach with a single vendor will help maximize cost and efficiency, while reducing headaches,” said Dave Cappuccio, research vice president, Gartner. “As customers’ data center computing requirements add complexity to the design-build process, comprehensive solutions that provide clients with an end-to-end experience will allow them to realize their plans within the required timeframe and constraints.”

Extensive experience

Based on its experience in “greenfield” and retrofit construction, HP is delivering CFI for increased efficiency when designing and building data centers. The company draws on its experience in designing more than 50 million square feet of raised-floor data center space and its innovations in design engineering to create fully integrated facility and IT solutions.

Benefits of CFI include:

  • HP’s management of all of the elements of the design-build project and vision of integrating facilities development with IT strategy.
  • A customized data center implementation plan that is scalable and flexible enough to accommodate their existing and future data center needs.
  • Access to experience based on a track record of delivering successful customer projects around data center planning and design-build. These projects include the world’s first LEED-certified data center, the first LEED GOLD-certified data center, India’s first Uptime Institute Tier III-rated data center as well as more than 60 “greenfield” sites, including 100-megawatt facilities.

HP CFI is available through HP Critical Facilities Services. Pricing varies according to location and implementation. More information is available at www.hp.com/services/cfi.
