The emergence of cloud computing combined with the convergence of Information Technology (IT), telecommunications, media, and entertainment have created a new enterprise market opportunity for service providers. By leveraging their networks and trusted relationships with enterprises, service providers can define a new cloud paradigm. They can transform their network infrastructures into agile, elastic virtual networked cloud platforms that provide a distributed, scalable, communication, content management, and computing infrastructure. HP and Alcatel-Lucent have created an open carrier-class cloud solution that automates and manages network, storage, compute and application resources while optimizing latency through intelligent distribution of applications and content to provide superior Quality of Experience (QoE) for users anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
