Hewlett-Packard (HP) has announced a new offering that the company says is designed to help customers launch a private cloud in 20 percent of the time it typically takes. This Information Week story says that the new offering, CloudStart, is a combination of blade hardware and HP data center management software in a single package.

The company is packaging blade hardware, storage management software, and consulting services to help customers launch a private cloud.

"HP made the announcement Monday on the opening day of VMworld, VMware's annual user group meeting going on this week in San Francisco. 'CloudStart is a high availability, turn-key solution at a fixed price, pre-integrated with a one-touch portal deployment,' claimed Alan Wilson, VP of infrastructure consulting, technology services. CloudStart will be delivered by a new unit, HP cloud consulting services.

"CloudStart enables delivery of IT services on a pay-per-use basis, with users given resources on a real-time access basis, with chargeback reporting supplied automatically, Wilson said in an interview."
