« Acquiring EYP Mission Critical Facilities boosts HP’s ability to help customers transform their data centers and build dynamic computing environments from the ground up, » John McCain, senior VP and general manager for HP Services, said in a statement.
Industries in which EYP has customers include financial services, technology, telecommunications, broadcast, manufacturing, and health care. The company also serves federal, state and local government agencies.
Besides the EYP deal, HP has made other data center-related acquisitions this year. The largest was the $1.6 billion purchase of Opsware, a maker of data center automation software; and the $214 million buy of Neoware, a maker of hardware and software for thin-client desktop systems.
