HP has announced a new service for data centre implementation, that aims to cut the time and complexity of delivering mission critical computing.
The HP Critical Facilities Implementation service (CFI), which is an extension of HP's Converged Infrastructure strategy, offers design, construction and project management to customers, with HP acting as the sole supplier. The service is intended to lower overall TCO for customers.
HP says that customers will benefit from HP's end-to-end critical facilities expertise and customized planning and implementation services to ensure that new or upgraded facilities meet with customer needs.
"Constructing a data centre is an enormous undertaking for any business, and taking an integrated approach with a single vendor will help maximize cost and efficiency, while reducing headaches," said Dave Cappuccio, research vice president, Gartner. "As customers' data centre computing requirements add complexity to the design-build process, comprehensive solutions that provide clients with an end-to-end experience will allow them to realize their plans within the required timeframe and constraints."
"Clients want all levels of their needs addressed, whether they are updating an existing data centre or building from the ground up. HP Critical Facilities Implementation service converges technology with strategic facilities planning to cover all aspects of our clients' needs whether they are updating an existing data centre or building from the ground up," said Ryan D'souza, technology services director, HP Middle East.
