Aruba: Everything Is Going To Be Fine
Aruba is telling its channel community that there is nothing to be afraid of, and the acquisition will actually help grow their business because partners will be able to utilize a much larger and broader HP portfolio.
"Aruba partners are going to have far greater resources available to them, a broader solution portfolio that's available to them, better ability to drive business and demand," said Greg Murphy, vice president of business operations. "Frankly, we think that combining with HP, that we and our partners will get higher-level access to larger enterprises than we're currently able to do by ourselves, and that is one of the main strategic drivers for this."
Murphy said both Aruba and HP share the same vision of open system networking, and partners have the opportunity to capitalize on the trend of "mobility-first" by working together with HP.
