PALO ALTO, Calif., April 3 — HP Enterprise Services today announced it has been selected by the U.S. Army to provide the Department of Defense and other federal agencies with enterprise cloud computing services under the Army Private Cloud contract (APC2).

The Army divided this contract to acquire enterprise cloud computing services in two suites. HP has been selected to provide services for both suites.

Under the terms of APC2, HP will team with world-class partners, including 10 small businesses and Alabama A&M University, to provide a wide range of critical services. Available for both fixed and deployed locations, these services include network connectivity, information assurance, certification and accreditation support, application migration, private cloud operations and maintenance, supply chain risk management, service support and service delivery.
