"These dynamic IT solutions are expected to provide increased business efficiency through solutions that converging server, storage, network and application resources in an automated, self-managed environment," the companies explained.

Solutions are available immediately, with new offerings being introduced throughout the next three years, the companies added.

Under the terms of the expanded partnership, the two companies will increase their global investment by 10 times to drive new opportunities for the 32,000 HP and Microsoft Frontline channel partners.

Through more than 11,000 Microsoft-certified HP professionals worldwide, HP Services, in partnership with Microsoft Services, will support the entire integrated hardware and software solution from simple implementations to the most critical enterprise infrastructure.
