HP is pushing into the cloud computing sector in a big way with a new scheme
HP is pushing into the cloud computing sector in a big way with a new scheme that will enable its channel partners to roll out better services for their customers faster.
The HP CloudSystem Partner Program consists of a set of tools designed to help with the development of cloud services and associated skills.
HP partners can take advantage of multiple resources made available to them including expert guidance, training and demonstration websites.
Launched at the HP Americas Partner Conference in LasVegas, the new programme is designed to help businesses utilise HP's cloud portfolio in the best possible way.
The company has an extensive range of cloud products - public or private storage clouds or hybrid solutions - suitable for all kinds of business environments.
Analysts predict the cloud market will be worth nearly £87.8 billion by 2013, and HP is hoping its initiative will help its partners capitalise on this rapid growth.
Frank Rauch, vice president for storage and networking, said: "Our partners play a strategic role in building and delivering cloud solutions for customers.
"Working with HP, channel partners can quickly build cloud practices today and develop new business models that take advantage of the massive cloud opportunity moving forward."
