 Hewlett Packard has just introduced a low cost virtual private cloud offering in the shape of HP Helion Virtual Private Cloud Lean. This is an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) aimed at improving workload performance for mid to large sized enterprises with an emphasis on collaborations and application development. The Helion VPCL includes some standard sized features such as virtualization, backup, recovery and clustering plus SAP HANA add-ons.

According to Jim Fanella, VP of workload and cloud for HP Enterprise Services, VPCL offers affordable enterprise class performance.
