18 Oct 2011 Palo Alto - HP has launched a new global HP CloudSystem Financing offer for qualified customers transitioning to the Cloud. This set of offers is made available through HP Financial Services, the company's leasing and asset management subsidiary.
Part of HP's programme to provide up to $2 billion in financing for Cloud projects, the offer allows enterprise and government clients to build their Cloud environments while conserving capital for growth initiatives. This should be especially appealing for both chief financial officers and chief information officers looking to strengthen business objectives while reducing IT provisioning costs.
Continued pressure on IT budgets can leave clients with little room to invest in newer technologies such as Cloud computing. Providing a bundled financing agreement for HP CloudSystem solutions, customers can immediately harness the power of Cloud computing for a low monthly cost.
With a variety of payment plans and financing options available through HP Financial Services, customers can now build and scale their Cloud environments without the large upfront capital expenditures typically tied to purchasing technology.
Additionally, as part of the HP CloudAgile programme for qualified service providers, HP Financial Services is offering a step payment plan, where payments start small and increase over six to 12 months, helping service providers ramp their businesses and better align expenditures with revenue growth.
HP CloudSystem is ideal for enterprises and service providers who want to deliver private and public Cloud services ranging from compute to Software as a Service. With HP CloudSystem, clients can deploy a new Cloud service in minutes or hours, not the weeks or months that a manual method requires. New financing, services and developer resources further extend the value of HP CloudSystem and accelerate the move to Cloud computing.
