CenterBeam Wins HP AllianceONE Partner of the Year Award for Cloud Computing

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 6, 2012) - CenterBeam Inc., a pioneer in hosted IT services, today announced that it has won the HP AllianceONE Partner of the Year Award for Cloud Computing, which recognizes outstanding cloud-based solutions built on HP Converged Infrastructure. CenterBeam was honored for its development and deployment of a secure, scalable cloud-based B2B infrastructure for food maker Chipita America.

HP AllianceONE Partner of the Year Awards recognize HP business partners' outstanding accomplishments in the development and delivery of innovative solutions built on HP Converged Infrastructure that raise the standard for business excellence and client satisfaction. Winners are chosen for delivering solutions that drive meaningful business results.

"For more than a decade, CenterBeam has delivered industry leading SaaS solutions over the cloud, built on HP Converged Infrastructure," said Shahin Pirooz, CSO and CTO at CenterBeam. "CenterBeam delivers a robust, reliable and secure solution in collaboration with HP, and we're honored to receive this recognition for our innovative services and business value."

"IT sprawl and siloed infrastructure are the primary barriers to the speed and agility customers require to keep pace with enterprise demand," said Doug Oathout, vice president, Global Marketing, Enterprise Group, HP. "HP and AllianceONE partners like CenterBeam collaborate to help customers improve agility and reduce costs through the use of HP Converged Infrastructure."

Using its hosted Private Virtual Datacenter, which is built on HP 3PAR Storage and HP ProLiant blade servers, CenterBeam created Chipita's B2B cloud. Chipita's cloud is comprised of a combination of vApp (DaaS), PaaS and IaaS solution to make a three-tiered Virtual Private Cloud, hosting both the backend application infrastructure, as well as the deskside client software in the cloud. Leveraging CenterBeam's innovative "bring your own security" (BYOS) model, Chipita also was able to integrate its required internal security policies into the CenterBeam cloud solution to ensure the highest level of security across all its IT resources. The resulting cloud solution reduced Chipita's overall capex; offered flexible, fully fault tolerant infrastructure and played a critical role in the company's success in working with its business partners and vendors.

"CenterBeam has been our trusted managed solutions provider for more than eight years, helping us design and build a secure, scalable cloud-based B2B infrastructure -- something that had we attempted to do on our own would have been expensive and required significantly more in-house expertise," said Scott Martin, Chief Information Officer at Chipita America. "CenterBeam's cloud solution was -- and still is -- critical to maintaining strong relationships with our customers and vendors."
