HP gets big deal with telcos

Written by Nick Farrell



Vodafone, Mobile TeleSystems and Verizon want Proliants


The maker of expensive printer ink has opened the champers this morning after it was announced that three huge wireless-network operators have signed up for Proliant kit.

ProLiant servers which are built on Intel’s latest processors, are going to be shoved under the bonnets of Vodafone, Verizon and Mobile TeleSystems. The deal was a result of collaboration between the three carriers with the goals of aligning on product standards and combining purchasing volumes.

Each of the customers is using ProLiant machines to further standardize x86 servers in its data centers, HP said. The latest ProLiant servers HP announced are its Gen8 product family. These are blades and towers servers with tools for power and thermal monitoring and asset tracking. HP said that it will also provide its Converged Infrastructure solutions to them.

No word how much money the deal will cost, but we suspect that it will be good news to HP which has not had many nice things happen to it lately.
