UPS® and HP: An IT collaboration
A partnership for continuous results
UPS needed to modernize IT operations in other ways too. Their HP Converged Infrastructure now helps them better meet tough corporate and industry sustainability benchmarks. These standards are part of UPS culture and they take them very seriously.
As a technology forward company, UPS knows they need to innovate every day. Easy expansion of IT capabilities, flexibility of resources and speed to value is key. That's why a Converged Infrastructure works so well. Importantly, it also frees up resources to power even more growth.
HP did all this with "strategic replacement"-taking the best of what UPS had, combining it with the best of what HP offers. Now new distribution centers can be set up in hours, not days, with no disruptive "rip and replace." Resources dedicated to the old process are now tackling other projects.
UPS Infrastructure. Converged.

HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers
UPS chose the HP ProLiant DL380, one of the newest Gen8 server series. Designed for application-driven workloads, the ProLiant Gen8 family will help-UPS get the most out of its specialized business software.
HP Backup and Recovery
UPS operates secure in the knowledge that powerful HP backup and recovery solutions are on the clock, around the clock. These include HP StoreOnce B6200 Backup, HP StoreOnce Catalyst Software and HP Data Protector Software. Their new redundant, secure, highly accessible storage and archiving platform delivers major cost-savings and greatly reduced data recovery times.
HP Technology Services
HP Technology Services works very closely throughout the journey with UPS, so upgrades, support and implementations happen smoothly. HP Technology Services, the Experts behind HP hardware and software, are people who share the UPS passion for getting better every second and working together to make it possible. Now UPS can do more because their HP CI solution has removed previously time- and money-intensive IT oversight from their schedules.
UPS's broad service portfolio and global network allows us to go further to provide unique logistics solutions to our customers. HP technology enabled us to free up valuable resources that we reinvested in growth and innovation to remain ahead of our customers' needs.”
