BT inks deal with HP Enterprise – beams cloud to biz customers

Mmmm, how many acronyms does this involve? Answer: BT IP VPN HPE

In brief Blighty telecoms giant BT has struck a cloudy deal with HP Enterprise for an undisclosed sum.

The company said that its IP VPN customers can now hook up directly to HPE's Helion managed cloud services. BT claimed that the direct link up would help customers to have more "reliable and secure access" when building workloads.

HPE veep, Eugene O'Callaghan, said in a canned statement:

Customers are looking to their cloud providers to deliver high performance, secure, reliable and high availability services in an evolving regulatory and threat landscape.

Our partnership to deliver these services with BT will bring a whole new level of confidence to global organisations.

At present, customers in the UK, Germany and France can access the HPE Helion cloudy services over its rapid connect system.

BT global services veep, Keith Langridge, said: "Our partnership to deliver these services with BT will bring a whole new level of confidence to global organisations.” ®
