HP, Toshiba, and the Cloud

hp cloud computing 300x193 resized 600HP has been one of the industry leaders when it comes to cloud computing solutions and infrastructure. The latest move by the company further demonstrates HP’s commitment to the cloud. It was recently announced that HP will collaborate with Toshiba to help get cloud computing services out to infrastructure organizations. The idea behind the joint effort is to put cloud solutions in the hands of energy producers, health care providers, water suppliers, municipal services, and more. In addition, the two companies are going to be collaborating in the area of intelligent infrastructure.

HP will be contributing its deep and varied IT expertise to the project, which is something that Toshiba doesn’t have on its own. At the same time, Toshiba has experience and knowledge for specific types of infrastructure areas. In addition to computers and chips, Toshiba is also involved in the manufacture of a number of products that relate to these infrastructure industries. A good example of this is Toshiba’s power systems component. That component makes equipment that’s used by nuclear power plants. Toshiba’s medical systems component produces a variety of MRI and X-ray equipment, used in the medical field.

This joint effort also provides a unique way for HP to be able to take some of those products and services that it’s developing in its labs, and deploy them in infrastructure environments. Those research areas encompass a number of new technologies, most notably solar energy, cloud computing services, infrastructure development, and IT security.

For Toshiba’s part, the joint effort is designed to help boost the Smart Community Business Division. This division was opened up in October 2010. The purpose of the Smart Community Business Division is to be able to build “smart grids” and to bring a modernization to infrastructure. They hope to utilize technologies like cloud computing to be able to see these kinds of modernization efforts take place.

Overall, this partnership should be a good thing for both companies, as well as for their customers. It’s exciting to see what kinds of solutions will come out of the partnership, especially for those involved in infrastructure fields.
