Tech Data Broadens Its Cloud Offerings with HP’s CloudSystem Platform

The distributor says HP’s cloud infrastructure will provide SMB resellers with technology to build and manage services across private, public, and hybrid cloud models.

The distributor says HP’s cloud infrastructure will provide SMB resellers with technology to build and manage services across private, public, and hybrid cloud models.

IT distributor Tech Data Corp. has added the HP CloudSystem Platform to its TDCloud and TDCloud Academy offerings.

HP CloudSystem is an integrated, open solution designed to enable resellers to build and manage services across the private, public, and hybrid clouds. These services could include:

  • Single services viewed across private, public, and hybrid cloud.
  • Multi-hypervisor, multi-OS, and heterogeneous infrastructures.
  • Intelligent automation and lifecycle management (application-to-infrastructure).

Tech Data Broadens Its Cloud Offerings with HP's CloudSystem PlatformHP CloudSystem is built on HP Converged Infrastructure and HP Cloud Service Automation.

“The HP CloudSystem infrastructure assembles best-in-class cloud technology across the private, public and hybrid models,” said John O’Shea, Vice President of Product Marketing, HP Solutions at Tech Data.

“HP has developed one of the most coherent, complete Cloud platform solutions,” says John O’Shea, Tech Data’s vice president of HP solutions, “and will essentially provide our VARs with an easy point of market entry to capitalize on HP’s position as the only industry leader able to bring together world-class server, storage, and software technologies into one cloud solution.”

To enhance the incorporation of HP into TDCloud, Tech Data has completed a new HP Solutions Center, which includes the HP CloudSystem Platform. The HP Solutions Center, located within Tech Data’s onsite Solutions Center in the company’s corporate headquarters, will showcase the HP BladeSystem Matrix solution and a host of HP service automation software and system extensions, such as cloud mapping, storage, security, and networking technologies.

“Cloud computing signifies a monumental transformation in the IT services industry,” O’Shea says. “The typical SMB reseller is uncertain about transitioning from a product- to a service-based model and how to gain entry to the cloud. Tech Data is leveraging TDCloud and HP CloudSystem to simplify the cloud for all resellers and introduce them to the tremendous potential for quickly developing a profitable business model around it.”

Through the establishment of the HP CloudSystem Platform with TDCloud, Tech Data is now a certified HP Cloud Center of Excellence. The designation is part of a program that will complement TDCloud Academy and culminate in HP Cloud Discovery Workshops and other facility-based training initiatives designed to provide resellers with guidance in utilizing and deploying cloud systems for their end-user customers.
