Differentiate in a cloud market dominated by global giants
French CSP Groupe Hisi saw a gap in the market for high-quality cloud services on IBM Power® servers, but the company lacked the capital for the required hardware.
At the time, the managed and cloud service provider was also starting up a number of new business streams and money was already tight.
So, how would they seize this opportunity?
Working closely with IBM Global Financing, Hisi were able to get the right infrastructure in place and align its investment with revenues from the new service.
The contract from IBM Global Financing spreads Groupe Hisi’s investment in two IBM Power System servers across monthly payments, starting with a two-month deferral period to give Groupe Hisi’s cloud service time to grow.
Since the contract was signed, Groupe Hisi have been able to upgrade the servers twice as demand has increased, and on similar terms.
