10 Hot Money-Making Plays For HP Partners


HP Cloud Builder

Saar Gillai (pictured), senior vice president and general manager of HP's Converged Cloud business, addressed a standing-room-only crowd of partners at the Global Partner Conference. Gillai told partners they have three choices: "Be in denial. Be disrupted, or be the disrupter by embracing cloud solutions from HP." The message has been resonating with partners who like HP's "3 Cs" cloud story: "Choice, Consistency and Confidence."

The first order of business for the thousands of partners selling HP's Converged Infrastructure is to sign up for HP's Cloud Builder program, which gives them a wide range of tools and incentives including market development funds, he said. "It's a no-brainer," said Gillai.

"By 2015 cloud is going to be a $132 billion market growing at a 20 percent compound annual growth rate," he said.
