Paris: HP has announced that Renault has chosen an HP Utility Services solution to support the development of innovative new telematics services for its electric cars.
Renault selected HP Enterprise Cloud Services – Utility Services to host its European IT infrastructure and manage its technical applications, delivering just the right computing capacity and giving the company greater flexibility to meet its business needs at minimum cost.
A preconfigured and tested HP Converged Infrastructure hosted in HP’s highly secure Tier 3 data center in Grenoble, France, gives Renault fast access to the latest HP server, storage, networking, power and cooling technologies.
This economical solution offers highly automated processes that cut the time, cost and complexity of getting Renault’s business-critical new applications into production. Built-in technology refreshes and flexible capacity provisioning ensure that Renault’s IT infrastructure is powerful and flexible enough to accommodate future demands.
The pay-as-you-go financial model reduces Renault’s capital investment and ensures predictable ongoing costs. The flexible model allows for frequent adjustments to support projected growth, and aligns with the service level agreements and high levels of security expected by Renault.
Gerald Karsenti, president and managing director, HP France, said that, “The combination of HP’s technology and cloud computing services helps us create the innovative, integrated, end-to-end solutions that customers like Renault need to more effectively achieve market, cost and environmental objectives.”
