HP cloud cover for TNT customers

PRESS RELEASE

March 16, 2015: HP Enterprise Services Ltd today announced that it has been selected by international express delivery services company TNT to help achieve its goal of delivering the perfect customer transaction.

Under the six-year contract, HP will support TNT's business by consolidating and virtualizing its IT infrastructure and moving some functions to an HP Helion Managed Virtual Private Cloud environment. As a result of simplifying the business model, standardising the technical landscape and providing flexible service levels, HP will enable TNT to keep pace with changing market conditions.

TNT is one of the world's largest express delivery companies. On a daily basis, TNT delivers close to one million consignments ranging from documents and parcels to palletised freight. The company operates road and air transportation networks in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Americas. TNT made €6.7 billion in revenue in 2014.

HP will support TNT's global strategy to improve performance while reducing costs by consolidating the company's IT estate to fewer locations, virtualising its servers and transforming older architectures to managed cloud services, thereby providing the company with a solid foundation for future business growth.

As well as building TNT's defined data centre networks based on HP servers, storage and networking, and delivering HP-managed security services, HP will move the company towards an Infrastructure as-a-Service (IaaS) model. As a result, TNT will be able to increase efficiency, control costs and respond to changing demands.

TNT's new hybrid environment will deliver savings and business innovation through a tailored mix of traditional hosting along with HP Helion Managed Private Cloud based on OpenStack technology. This open standards-based common architecture cloud platform enables new capabilities such as 'bursting' workloads, which will allow TNT to consume and pay for capacity only when needed.

"Transforming the provision of data centre services across the world will provide TNT with a solid foundation to support its growth strategy," says Jacqui Ferguson, general manager UK&I and MEMA, HP Enterprise Services. "As a global partner with presence in all TNT's operating countries, and a comprehensive technology and IT investment solutions portfolio, HP will provide services that can be scaled with the business."
