Two contracts from the Defense Information Systems Agency worth up to $440 million over eight years have been awarded to Hewlett-Packard Co., which will furnish computing infrastructure in 17 locations worldwide. Both contracts have a five-year base period and three one-year options.
Under one contract, capped at $250 million, HP of Palo Alto, Calif., will deliver its HP-UX operating environment. Under the other contract, worth up to $190 million, it will deliver operating environments in Microsoft Windows, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Novell SUSE Linux.
The company's computing infrastructure will adjust to DISA's fluctuating demands, and the Defense Department agency will pay only for the services it uses.
HP will deploy its Integrity and ProLiant servers, software solutions for automated server provisioning and its OpenView commercial applications. The company will design, deliver, install and maintain the infrastructure services.Roseanne Gerin is a staff writer for
