File Sharing Company Seeburger to Offer HP 'Cloud in a Box' Services

By Erin Harrison, Executive Editor, Cloud Computing

File sharing company Seeburger and HP Germany have formed an agreement to make the company’s user-to-user file sharing available on HP’s new cCell Services Platform.

Company officials said the private cloud options of the multi-tenant HP cCell Services include a pay-per-use, HP-managed “cloud in a box” that can be deployed in the customer’s own data center to avoid capital outlays and maintain data on company premises.

Seeburger officials said HP’s cloud service gives companies a unique advantage based on its on-premise private cloud model.

“HP’s new cloud services offer all the core cloud advantages, including rapid deployment and utility pricing, with unique additional benefits ranging from a pay-per-use on-premise private cloud as a service to optional addition of cCell Services from HP’s or a partner's data center,” said Rohit Khanna, executive vice president, Global Strategy and Corporate Development, at Seeburger. “This is a compelling new model with significant advantages for many companies, including those with regulatory prohibitions against transmitting data outside the company firewall.”

Seeburger File Exchange (SEE FX) is part of the company’s Managed File Transfer solution – a segment of its Business Integration Suite (BIS), which companies augment the value of their SAP (News - Alert) deployments as well as achieve new business efficiencies by solving complex integration needs.

SEE FX helps organizations control and monitor file transfers both inside and outside the company firewall with full compliance, audit and security coverage unavailable with conventional file transfer solutions such as FTP, YouSendIt and Dropbox.

In related news, Telecom provider Swisscom (News - Alert) AG has launched a managed service for hosted unified communications and collaboration based on HP’s private cloud infrastructure, TMCnet reported.

As integrated communications solutions become increasingly complex for businesses to operate, HP’s CloudSystem allows Swisscom to offer managed services for UC using a fixed price, per-user per-month model.

In addition to providing mobile communication services to 5.8 million customers and 1.6 million broadband connections, Swisscom now offers UC&C as a managed service for its corporate customers using a high-performance HP Converged Infrastructure.
