With the right infrastructure, service providers can leverage their greatest assets - their network and their expertise - to deliver cloud services from their data centers as a natural extension of the network and hosting services they offer today. The cloud-ready data center infrastructure must support new service models at the scale necessary to meet demand, and operate efficiently to ensure profitability and support full virtualization.

HP and Alcatel-Lucent have combined their strengths to bring service providers all of the elements needed to deliver cloud services from their data center: Compute resources, storage, data center fabric, inter-data-center connectivity and unified service orchestration.  With the HP and Alcatel-Lucent offering, service providers will be better positioned to address their customers' needs and reap the rewards of the cloud services opportunity.
