HP lands $290 million DLA data center deal

Hewlett-Packard Co. has won a 10-year, $290 million contract from the Defense Logistics Agency to provide data center consolidation services for the agency's Enterprise Data Center program, the company announced today.

Under the contract, HP of Palo Alto, Calif., will help the agency consolidate large numbers of servers and infrastructure into centralized facilities using HP technology.

Most of the agency's servers, applications and storage will be consolidated through the EDC migration effort, which program officials have agreed to stagger to minimize disruptions to customer service.

The initiative is expected to reduce the DLA's information technology inventory, resulting in cost reduction and more modern IT infrastructure, the company said.

Once completed, the consolidation will allow for more effective implementation of information assurance programs throughout the agency and will enhance its disaster recovery and business continuity programs, the company said.

HP, a provider of IT infrastructure, personal computing and access devices and services, has more than 142,000 employees and annual sales of $78.4 billion.

The company ranked No. 56 on Washington Technology's Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
