Airtel teams up with HP to launch cloud platform

MUMBAI: Telecom Major Bharti Airtel has launched its Cloud Enablement Platform (CLEP) based on the HP Aggregation Platform for Software-as-a- Service (AP4SaaS).

Bharti Airtel will offer hosted SaaS and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) applications to the small and large enterprises on a pay-as-you-go model.

Initially, Airtel will offer solutions like ERP, accounting packages, storage and compute on the Airtel CLEP Platform. Going forward the company will introduce diverse SaaS applications on the same platform especially for SMB customers, thereby helping them to meet the ever evolving business demands.

Airtel asserts that its Cloud Services will enable businesses of all sizes to optimize their IT costs while providing security, scalability and flexibility.

Bharti Airtel CEO (India & South Asia) Sanjay Kapoor said, “Cloud computing market in India is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 40 per cent by 2014. Bharti Airtel, with our end to end telecom solutions bundled with the latest technologies like 3G and 4G, is uniquely poised to lead this space by offering a wide range of Cloud based services /applications to our customers.

HP Enterprise Services built a CLEP using the HP AP4SaaS, integrated into Bharti Airtel‘s existing network system. A key component of the HP Cloud Services Enablement portfolio, the AP4SaaS is a common platform from which Airtel can not only deliver IaaS but also Communications as a Service and SaaS, either hosted on operator premises or integrated with third-party SaaS providers.

It provides a flexible set of web service interfaces for enhancing the Cloud Service Provider’s (CSP) customer portal and facilitates distribution, subscription, and consumption via a marketplace portal.

“Communications service providers need flexibility, innovation and speed to market to attract new customers and drive new revenue streams,” said HP India MD Neelam Dhawan. “HP Aggregation Platform for SaaS eases the integration of SaaS and IaaS into the CSP environment, expediting the delivery to Airtel’s small and medium business customers.”

HP will offer implementation and management of the end-to-end Cloud Enablement Platform.
