HP announced new additions to its recently updated portfolio of servers, storage, software and services -- driving more business value into Microsoft virtualization environments.

"Customers are increasingly using virtualization to deliver lower costs and reduced risks to the business as virtualization moves from being a tactical technology toward becoming a key transformation strategy," said Sean Hehir, vice president, Microsoft Strategic Alliance, HP. "HP has worked extensively with Microsoft to develop products and services across our portfolio that not only help customers realize the full value of Microsoft virtualization technologies, but also help them accelerate the growth of their businesses."
