SOMERSET, NJ, July 10 — HP CloudSystem Hosting partner SHI International revealed today that its Managed Private Cloud (MPC) solution has been certified by HP and is now available through the HP direct sales channel. Through this expanded partnership, HP customers wanting to buy private cloud services can purchase SHI's Managed Private Cloud directly through their HP sales representative.
Built using HP CloudSystem solutions, the SHI Managed Private Cloud is an on-site, appliance-based approach to cloud computing. It utilizes the Managed Private vCore to enable virtual machines (VMs) to exist with an organization's data center while being remotely monitored and supported by SHI Labs. SHI's Managed Private Cloud is delivered via a usage-based pricing model, offering easy acceleration to the cloud with minimal upfront investment.
"Organizations are looking for ways to immediately access additional capacity for critical applications, but keep their IT costs under control," said Patrick Harr, Americas vice president, Cloud Sales and Solutions, HP. "With SHI's Managed Private Cloud, HP customers have the flexibility to tap into secure, high-performance services on demand, freeing budget to focus on innovation and growth."
Certain government and industry regulations require enterprise data to remain on-site within an organization's firewall, limiting its ability to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing. SHI's Managed Private Cloud eliminates this barrier to entry, providing the features and functionality of an in-house solution with the flexibility and scalability of a cloud environment.
"When we set out to design and build our cloud infrastructure we needed to select the best technology to build our solution, and the HP cloud portfolio met our requirements for hardware and software solutions," said Henry Fastert, SHI's Chief Technologist and the Managing Partner for Enterprise Solution Services. "This extension of the HP CloudAgile relationship gives HP customers new flexibility for integrating HP CloudSystem solutions – namely, SHI's Managed Private Cloud – into their IT strategies."
