Software licensing in the Cloud, HP is here to help


TechTarget posted a recent article, Cloud Computing Licensing: Buyer Beware with details on the complexity and challenges of moving applications to the cloud. As the article states:


“Now add in the cloud. Dynamically increasing and decreasing the number of servers hosting an application to meet demand is great when it comes to uptime, stability, and performance. But figuring out how to license this is a nightmare.”


HP is aware of this challenge and provides our customers with industry leading experts in cloud and licensing, Software Licensing Advisory Services for Cloud. As part of the HP Software Licensing Advisory Services for Cloud (SLAS4C) this team has more than 20 years of experience as a globally accredited Software Licensing Reseller and Software Asset Management partner.
