HP Enables Partners to Accelerate Cloud Services Delivery

New Offerings Help Partners Expand Opportunities in the Cloud, Grow Customer Base

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 02/20/13 -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced two new HP Cloud Builder programs that enable partners to leverage HP Cloud Services, the company's public cloud, to expand their cloud practices and generate new revenue opportunities.

HP also introduced three new "as a service" offerings from HP Cloud Services that provide customers with faster time to value and simplified cloud deployment.

As part of HP's Converged Cloud strategy, the new additions to the HP Cloud Builder program enable global system integrators (GSIs) and value-added resellers (VARs) to offer their customers a hybrid delivery model across private, managed and public cloud environments. HP partners are looking for new and innovative ways to assist their customers' move to the cloud. By adopting these programs, partners gain access to specialized personnel and training that enables them to respond faster, and drive greater profitability and innovation for their customers.

The two new HP Cloud Builder programs, unveiled at the 2013 HP Global Partner Conference, expand opportunities in the cloud for GSIs and VARs. HP's public cloud partner program for GSIs enables them to leverage tools and capabilities to simplify the cloud transition for customers. In addition, HP announced the general availability of its public cloud partner program for VARs, which provides reward incentives to partners referring customers to HP Cloud Services.

HP public cloud partner program for global system integrators
HP's public cloud program for GSIs enables partners to provide consulting services, build applications or resell services leveraging HP Cloud Services. It provides partners with the tools to rapidly and reliably transition customers to the cloud. Program members have access to designated cloud testing environments; collaborative go-to-market opportunities; and sales, technical and support resources that expand their public cloud practices.

Deloitte Consulting LLP, a global financial services firm, and Infosys, a technology consulting and outsourcing provider, are working with HP Cloud Services and the HP partner program for GSIs to help meet the high demand among enterprise customers to leverage the public cloud. As a result, Deloitte and Infosys have the means to help their customers solve complex business problems, foster innovation and drive growth.

"HP's public cloud partner program for GSIs provides global system integrators with access to HP Cloud Services to grow their public cloud practice," said Chris Weitz, Deloitte Consulting director and leader of Deloitte's cloud computing practice. "Deloitte has joined HP's public cloud partner program for GSIs to help meet the high demand among enterprises to define a cloud strategy, move to the cloud and remain competitive."

HP public cloud partner program for value-added resellers
HP's public cloud program for VARs rewards partners for referring customers to HP Cloud Services and maintaining long-term relationships with annuity-based commissions. The program helps VARs and channel partners capture new markets and attract customers through HP training, cobranding opportunities and marketing tools.

Starting summer 2013, HP will expand the program to provide financial incentives for channel partners reselling HP Cloud Services.

"By engaging with HP's public cloud partner program for VARs, we are able to meet the needs of our customers by offering solutions that help them innovate and scale with their business," said Al Chien, vice president, Sales and Marketing, Dasher Technologies.

New HP Cloud Services offerings
HP has expanded its HP Cloud Services portfolio with new private beta "as a service" offerings that support a reliable application infrastructure and enable customers to achieve rapid business results:

  • HP Cloud Monitoring helps users identify potential issues before they impact production with infrastructure metrics, alerts and notification tools.
  • HP Cloud Load Balancer optimizes application response times and reduces IT management costs by distributing web traffic across multiple servers.
  • HP Cloud DNS saves developers' time and provides quick and easy access to a faster, reliable global DNS service by translating domain names to IP addresses using a global network of servers.

"Partners and organizations alike are strapped for resources, making it difficult to invest in the newest technologies for their customers," says Roger Levy, vice president, Technology and Customer Operations, Cloud Services, HP. "HP's partner programs and service additions demonstrate our ongoing commitment to engage partners and clients in innovative technology capabilities, helping them to reach new markets, grow their customer base and, ultimately, ensure their profitability."
