Hewlett Packard Platinum Partners

OCSL's relationship with HPE spans more than 20 years. We were recently announced as the first UK HPE Platinum Partner.

HPE Platinum Partner

Our commitment is to ensure that our consultants keep abreast of new developments via ongoing training and accreditation. OCSL has been awarded the highest accolades and partner status from HPE.

OCSL was presented with Converged Infrastructure Partner of the Year from HPE at the annual Partner Forum. As just one partner receives this award, it clearly sets us apart from other partners in the UK.

"OCSL continues to be one of HPE's most valued and innovative partners. Their focus on delivering customer excellence across the HPE portfolio is recognised in this suite of awards and I have no doubt that they will continue to exceed customer expectation with the HPE based solutions they create." Andy Isherwood, Managing Director, HPE UK & I.

OCSL was also singled out by the Frontline Partnership to receive an award for HPE & Microsoft Frontline Outstanding Partner of the Year.

HPE provides a broad portfolio of hardware and software solutions, invests in constant product innovation and offers best-of-breed products to suit all your IT needs.

HPE Awards and Accreditations

"I was very pleased to present the Converged Infrastructure Partner of the Year Award to OCSL. OCSL is a long standing and valued partner that has built an excellent reputation with both customers and HPE sales teams. OCSL's success in deploying HPE solutions is largely down to their deep understanding of the HP Enterprise product set portfolio and ultimately their ability to translate these into outcomes that matter for the many customers they engage with." 

Andy Isherwood, Managing Director, HPE UK&I

HPE Storage

OCSL is a multi-award winning HPE Storage Specialist Partner, as well as being one of a select few HPE ServiceOne Expert Partners, meaning OCSL is an approved deployment partner for HPE.

HPE Storage solutions help clients to optimise storage resources and build a platform for businesses to operate critical applications and services.

OCSL is skilled at creating efficient, consolidated, virtualised, performant, highly available and multi-site storage solutions, utilising the latest advanced features available from the HPE Storage portfolio, including StoreServ (3PAR) and StoreVirtual (Left-Hand), as well as HPE P2000 (MSA), P6000 (EVA) and P9500 (XP) disk based storage arrays.

NAS solutions can be seamlessly fused with the SAN based storage, to provide a unified data solution for todays mixed workload environments.
Efficient and reliable backup of business data is another key area of competency. Depending on the size and complexity of your organisation, this may require individual tape drives or centralised tape libraries.

An alternative approach is backup-to-disk using space efficient de-duplication technologies, such as the HPE StoreOnce (D2D) range of appliances, supporting virtual tape libraries, NAS and the all new Catalyst integration, for the most advanced backup and replication solution for your backup data, made even more feature rich with the HP Data Protector enterprise-class backup software suite.
