HP Signs 60-Plus Facility Contracts

HP (hp.com) announced on Thursday it has signed data center design services contracts with more than 60 customers in the last six months through its company, EYP Mission Critical Facilities (eypmcf.com).

The company provides strategic planning, design and operations support to help companies transform their data centers, optimize energy efficiency and enable business growth.

In the past six months, organizations across 12 industries and 27 countries -- including Credit Suisse, UBS, Digital Realty Trust and Power Loft -- have signed up for EYP MCF's data infrastructure services.

More than 500 companies have worked with EYP MCF to design their data centers, command and control centers, trading floors, and supercomputing sites.

This significant demand in mission-critical services projects has led HP to broaden its EYP MCF services availability to more countries.

"Companies from all over the world are turning to HP to design and build the next-generation data centers required for high-density scalable computing," says Peter Gross, CEO of EYP Mission Critical Facilities. "By offering customers the right solutions to complex energy-efficiency and optimization challenges, we are giving them the keys to adapt and transform to meet changing business needs."

EYP MCF has signed partnerships with data center designer Power Loft to apply industrial design concepts within its data center, helping to maximize energy efficiency with zero reduction to overall reliability.

Other projects EYP MCF has undergone in the past six months include providing consulting services for a Tier IV data center master plan across a top US university's statewide, multi-campus data center environment, designing an energy-efficient data center in Iceland that features Tier I to IV reliability and LEED Platinum certification, and consulting with global financial services firm UBS on its data center design.

With one of the industry's broadest portfolios of servers, storage, services and software, HP is helping customers build next-generation data centers to drive competitive advantage. EYP MCF's capabilities add facilities expertise to the HP Data Center Transformation portfolio.

In July, HP announced it is launching its own a container-based data center offering, Performance Optimized Data Center, by the end of the third quarter growth in the data center and the challenges of rising energy costs, says the company.
