Mary Gabra.jpgNew marquee customers continue to select HP Networking for their data center infrastructure. These large organizations see the value HP offers for their network. Simplicity, security and agility are benefits that HP brings to customers.


Gaming Company Selects HP

This latest customer that transitioned to HP was moving to a new location and had Cisco as its incumbent vendor. We competed against a Cisco Nexus 7000 with HP’s FlexFabric data center solution that included HP 12900, HP 5900 and HP 5500.


The customer was impressed by HP’s ability to provide a long-term solution at a price/performance that worked for them—and as a result chose us as the vendor of choice. also In addition we designed a scalable solution with the HP FlexFabric 12900 to meet their current as well as future needs.


The proposed solution includes Technology Services consulting and support, consultants helped the customer architect their network to meet the business needs today and to scale for future requirements.


In the end, the customers’ selection of a vendor was not based purely on products and services – it also encompassed HP’s partnership with the customer. HP invested in the relationship and was committed to making it successful. And that is why HP was selected – it’s not just about speeds and feeds anymore; it’s about our being able to listen to customers, understand their needs and provide them with solutions.

More to Come 

HP Networking continues to secure more business from competitors because of or successful positioning as a trusted partner as well as our solutions that future-proof the network and protect customers’ investments. I truly believe that for customers it is not about products, it’s the partnership that makes HP the vendor of choice.
