World computer systems maker, Hewlett Packard, HP and its Nigerian partners, Computer Information Systems, CIS Nigeria Limited, may have decided to leverage on the partnership to benefit its numerous users.

This is as the partnership brought about a newly introduced data centre management solution from the (HP), said to have the capacity to reduce costs by 34 per cent.

Speaking at the one-day seminar organized by the duo in Lagos, recently, Managing Director of CIS, Mr. Charbel Bon-Eid said that the new data management centre reflected the original aim of the company’s green technology initiative which aims at reducing cost from optimal management of scarce energy resources and alternative power plans.

The centre boasts of Performance Optimized Data (POD) centre,  dynamic smart cooling system and thermal logic, which derives from power measurement.

The core value of the data centre transformation, involves practical ways to overcome the energy and capacity limitations, operational vulnerabilities and technology constraints for energy and space efficiency among others.

Explaining how the data centre could reduce cost to up to 34 percent, Bon-Eid said that as a centre with combined value proposition, though the initial cost may be high, but when eventually spread over the life span of the data centre the total cost of ownership would be cheaper.  In his presentation titled  The CIS & HP Advantage in Managing Projects and Risks, he noted that with globalization, about 57 per cent of workers are in locations other than the headquarters of their companies, adding that only technology could transcend across all the locations without creating barrier.
