HP has announced plans to offer Oracle applications bundled with its private cloud hardware platform.
Oracle's PeopleSoft platform will be available on BladeSystem server hardware, and HP also planning to add Oracle E-Business Suite and Fusion Infrastructure to the platform by the end of the year.
The HP Private Cloud Solution bundles will also include HP's Cloud Service Automation and StorageWorks platforms as well as the Cloud Maps management tool.
Additionally, HP said that it will provide customers with white papers and service experts to help deploy and support the systems.
Kevin Lyons, director of solutions alliances for enterprise server storage and networking at HP, told V3.co.uk that the company is aiming to provide the basis for transitioning other parts of the IT infrastructure to private cloud systems.
"This is not an appliance, it's a flexible bundle built on an architecture from years of experience," he said. "This is the beginning. You are going to want to merge your environments and build on this starting point."
HP plans to launch the Private Cloud Solution for PeopleSoft systems in October.
