Together with HP, Centric and Eshgro are delivering secure, unified cloud solutions based on HP CloudSystem to help enterprises gain agility, speed and flexibility. Through the new
HP CloudAgile Program, Centric and Eshgro have transformed their business models to offer a future-ready platform that helps companies accelerate their migration to the cloud.
Rather than build and maintain their own data centers, organizations are increasingly entrusting operations to service providers like Centric and Eshgro. This enables organizations to provide customers with technology resources to help them meet security, compliance and other regional requirements for cloud computing in their local markets.
Centric and Eshgro each offer a comprehensive program that spans testing, development resources and pay-as-you-grow financing. Plus, as members of the HP CloudAgile Program, they have direct access to HP’s sales force in the Netherlands to extend their sales reach. The program, with built-in incentives such as go-to-market support, financing incentives and training, lets them expand their portfolio of service offerings and accelerate time to market.
The HP CloudAgile Program includes certified partners that deliver cloud services, as well as service providers, service hosts, systems integrators and value-added resellers.
Certified partners help customers reduce costs, increase efficiency

HP’s agile, easily managed cloud computing solutions enable us to run more than 500 industry-specific applications while offering companies reliability, speed and significant cost savings.”
