HP to introduce its first Cloud Center of Excellence in EMEA

HP says that Computacenter Germany has become the first HP Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) in the EMEA region. HP Cloud Centers of Excellence enable channel partners to showcase and demonstrate the business transformation potential that cloud offers to customers.


Date: 26 Sep 2011

With the newly installed HP CloudSystem Matrix, HP 3PAR Storage System, and the HP Cloud Service Automation for Matrix, Computacenter Germany is now well positioned to demonstrate end to end cloud solutions to their customers. The new HP Cloud Center of Excellence underlines the expertise Computacenter Germany and HP both have in the cloud area and is the latest addition to Computacenter Germany’s Customer Center in Ratingen, Germany.

Reiner Louis, Member of the Board at Computacenter Germany said: “We are delighted to be the first to open an HP Cloud Center of Excellence in EMEA. Cloud is fundamentally changing the way technology is used and consumed. We have a number of solution architects and engineers available to assist customers and this new center will now enable us to demonstrate the true power of cloud.”

Barbara Hallmanns, Converged Infrastructure Channel Sales Manager, HP Enterprise Business EMEA, said: “HP Cloud Centers of Excellence are a key part of our EMEA Cloud Channel Program and we are committed to expanding the infrastructure solutions for these centers to allow channel partners to transform their facilities into cloud demonstration sites. We look forward to working with Computacenter Germany on this first center and look forward to opening many more across the region.”

HP Cloud Center of Excellence is a joint investment between HP and channel partners. Centers are based on HP CloudSystem, which combines HP Converged Infrastructure architecture with HP Cloud Service Automation software for unified building and management of cloud services across private, public and hybrid models. It is part of a sponsorship program from HP Software in supporting partners with resources, trainings, and go-to-market programs for Cloud, covering both licensed software and SaaS. Cloud presents a great opportunity for HP channel partners and for HP Software partners in particular as customers are actively looking for expert advice and solutions to provision and manage Cloud services, and to modernize applications to run in the Cloud.
