BSO Achieves Seamless, Worldwide Access to Business-Critical Services

We have selected Hewlett-Packard Enterprise to provide our customers with high-performance technology.

Hewlett-Packard LogoWhen you’re not the biggest player in the market, you have to work smart and that’s the secret of success for global network, cloud and hosting expert, BSO. This privately owned international company is led by technologists who continually invest in its network and data centres to create market-leading, progressive solutions that deliver competitive advantage for its clients.

BSO replicates data between two sites and constantly needs to innovate to fight competition from incomers such as GoogleTM and Amazon Web Services (AWS). To develop its private cloud offering, it wanted a platform where it could implement both bare metal and virtualized workloads on the same hardware. Because it has remote offices, it also wanted to cut down on manpower with a solution that could be managed remotely and easily augmented to onboard new clients and speed time-to-market for new services.Emmanuel Pelle

BSO has been a long-time user of HPE 3PAR storage, running what is believed to be the largest 3PAR platform in Paris, so it is no surprise that Hewlett Packard Enterprise was featured in its search for a new solution. The HPE Synergy composable infrastructure and its automation capabilities put it top of the list following presentations, workshops, and rigorous proof-of-concept (POC) tests.

Emmanuel Pelle, Chief Operations Officer at BSO, stated:

“We want to replicate what we have in Paris to allow our customers to be able to use on-demand cloud and on-demand service resources everywhere they need them. If we have customers who need resources in New York or Chicago, Hong Kong or Tokyo we want them to be able to use our network and infrastructure seamlessly across the world. That is our ultimate goal. To do that remotely, you need to build something with high resiliency and high availability from day one and that is why we chose HPE Synergy technology.”
