Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has recognized CROC as the CERTA (Central Europe, Russia, Turkey and Africa) Solution Provider of the Year 2021 for its expertise in the creation and development of computing infrastructures. HPE also recognized the proficiency of CROC experts and the company’s service ecosystem, which helps Russian and international customers operate effective and scalable IT systems and drive business transformation through innovation.

CROC has been a key HPE strategic partner for 17 years, completing around 1,500 projects featuring HPE hardware and software for leading companies such as Ingosstrakh, RusHydro, Paradigm Geophysical and Wimm Bill Dann. Furthermore, CROC has an HPE demo lab in its office to test the vendor’s cutting-edge technology and apply it to customer business tasks.

Notably, 2020-2021 witnessed around 100 large joint projects by CROC and HPE. Specifically, CROC provided computing capacity for an insurance provider’s VDI during the pandemic, upgraded and expanded a hyperconverged storage for a large retailer, and renewed one of its most long-term agreements (10+ years) for technical support of HPE systems at an FMCG company. Earlier this year, CROC was also presented with two awards by HPE: "Largest sales for business-critical HPE Datacenter care" and "Best implementation of HPE GreenLake EaaS/ХaaS".

CROC's expertise helps Russian customers make the most of HPE products. Our partner has a high level of competence in the comprehensive range of available HPE solutions when it comes to technology selection, installation, and integration. We are also fully confident in CROC’s capacity to consistently provide high quality technical support.

Our projects most often involve HPE equipment for business-critical purposes. Whether an IT upgrade to meet new market challenges or infrastructure adaptation to launch new services and drive digital progress, any ambitious endeavor requires solutions that guarantee excellent performance, high reliability, and cost-effective support. In many cases, HPE systems fit corporate workloads more than others. Moreover, the vendor's products are part of our own IT infrastructure. Given our many years of experience with this vendor, we can definitely recommend HPE solutions to our customers.
