HP and Box accelerate business collaboration in the Cloud

5 Dec 2011 Palo Alto - HP and Box are working together to provide businesses an integrated collaboration experience to a range of users - from the individual to the enterprise - for storing and managing content in the Cloud. HP is offering the Box Cloud content-management and collaboration platform on select small and midsize business and enterprise devices, delivering greater opportunities for business customers who want added value from their critical information.

Customers who purchase select HP Compaq Elite and HP Compaq Pro business desktops will have access to special offers from Box that include increased storage capacity and enterprise sync for enhanced collaboration and content management in the Cloud.

"Our customers are entering a new era of data management and storage, and they need a simple, cost-effective way to collaborate and share information in the Cloud", stated Stephen DiFranco, senior vice president and general manager, Americas, Personal Systems Group, HP. "HP's broad range of PCs plus Box's scalable service provides the desirable security, functionality and features to meet the needs and budgets of our customers."

Gartner estimates that while $74 billion was spent on public Cloud services in 2010, it represented only 3 percent of enterprise spending. Gartner predicts that public Cloud services will grow five times faster than overall IT enterprise spending (19 percent annually through 2015). With the massive market opportunity for enterprise collaboration in the Cloud, HP and Box are focused on redefining the way organisations manage and share information.

"To be successful in today's enterprise, businesses of all sizes must provide their end users with the right tools to drive innovation, foster collaboration and increase customer adoption", stated Aaron Levie, co-founder and chief executive officer, Box. "Box and HP are focused on helping redefine the way organisations manage and share information in the Cloud. Together, we can empower the next generation of knowledge workers."

Customers who purchase select HP business PCs will have access to a free account on the Box platform:

  • HP Compaq 6200 and 6005 Pro Series PCs: U.S. customers who purchase an HP Compaq 6005 or 6200 Pro Series PC through the HP Smart Buy programme can choose to open a free Box account with 10 gigabytes (GB) of storage, with the option to upgrade to additional capacities at a reduced annual rate.
  • HP Compaq 8200 Elite Series PCs: U.S. customers who purchase an HP Compaq 8200 Elite Series PC through the HP Smart Buy programme can choose to open a Box account with unlimited storage and sync at no cost for one year.
