HP Awarded Cloud Contract By U.S. Army

Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) announced Tuesday that its Enterprise Services segment has been awarded a indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract by the U.S Army. Under the deal, the tech giant will provide the Department of Defense and other federal agencies with enterprise cloud computing services.

The contract, released under the Army Private Cloud contract, would help the Army utilize industry capabilities via cloud offerings. The Army would use this contract to acquire specific cloud computing services to consolidate data centers by establishing a secure, cost-effective private cloud.

HPQ stated that the contract has a $249 million ceiling over a one-year base period and four one-year options.
