The deal gives Bethesda-based OptiGlobe access to Hewlett-Packard's computing and imaging solutions and services at its recently opened data center facility in Sao Paulo, as well as in centers under development in other key cities in the region, including Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Mexico City.
Over the next three years, OptiGlobe (www.optiglobe.com) projects the value of the partnership at $100 million, says the company's CEO and chairman, Scott Puritz.
Since its launch last November, the Sao Paulo facility has attracted more than 55 customers with a sales backlog that now exceeds $23 million.
OptiGlobe's services allows customers to choose high-speed Internet connections from all the major telecom providers for cost, reliability and diversity benefits.
