BlackBerry Now HP Helion Ready and First EMM vendor to Join HP’s Helion Network



We’re excited to share that BlackBerry’s enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution, BES12, is now certified through the HP Helion Ready Program. For those customers that want their software solutions to “just run” on HP Helion OpenStack®, they can now select BES12 as their EMM solution for use with HP Helion OpenStack.

HP Helion OpenStack is based on open source cloud technology, providing many business advantages, from reducing costs through economies of scale and decreasing TCO to avoiding vendor lock-in and preserving workload portability. It’s also the common architectural foundation for the HP Helion Network, for which BlackBerry is the first EMM vendor.

The HP Helion Network is an ecosystem of service providers, value-added resellers, independent software vendors, and other partners that will collaborate with HP to build, sell and deliver public cloud/virtual private cloud services based on HP Helion technology.

Comprising smaller communities, such as Cloud28+, the HP Helion Network also offers hardware vendors and solution providers both a way to test and certify their products with HP Helion OpenStack and become a part of HP’s expanding partner ecosystem.

The HP Helion Network works collaboratively to meet the needs of customers rather than being owned and operated by any single vendor. As part of this ecosystem, BlackBerry can offer enterprise customers looking to leverage HP Helion OpenStack real value from their hybrid IT environments.

“BlackBerry’s enterprise portfolio and global presence reinforce HP and the Helion community’s commitment to creating an open ecosystem of leading IT vendors,” said Steve Dietch, Vice President, Cloud Go to Market, HP. “This program allows customers to confidently deploy HP Helion OpenStack in mixed environments with hardware and software solutions that are certified and supported.”
