The Frontline Partnership is a long-standing relationship, dedicated to developing and delivering industry-standard information technology in both core businesses and new strategic markets while offering unmatched ownership satisfaction and value.

Through this partnership, HP and Microsoft combine our respective strengths as industry leaders to bring you complete, integrated technology solutions that go in easy, stay up all the time, and include world-class service on demand.

Our history says a lot

For over two decades now, HP and Microsoft executives, engineers, and sales and service teams have worked side-by-side to research, develop, test, implement, and support solutions that meet your most demanding business objectives and help you drive new business development efforts.

Currently, we are engaged closely to launch Microsoft’s new Windows® Vista operating system including the next generation Exchange Server 2007 and Office 2007. This builds on a strong foundation of shared technology and engineering resources that developed and advanced the Windows 95/98, Windows NT, and Windows 2000 operating systems, Exchange 2000, Datacenter Server, the complete suite of .NET Enterprise Servers and the Windows Server 2003 operating system family.

We walk our talk

HP and Microsoft implement the solutions we offer to you within our own companies. HP ProLiants comprise 95% of Microsoft's 6,000 servers and were used as the development platform for Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003, Commerce Server 2000, Exchange 2000 Server, SharePoint Portal Server 2000, SQL Server 2000 and .NET. Microsoft and HP, respectively, represent the first and second largest Windows 2000 implementation in the world.

We're committed to serving you

With the largest and most experienced Microsoft-trained workforce, HP Global services offers superior talent and experience to plan, design, implement, manage, and support Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and .NET solutions that reduce your risk and accelerate time-to solution. We've developed a unique set of capabilities to help you build a super-efficient, ultra-responsive Web-enabled enterprise using the power of Microsoft technology on HP systems.

Because HP can deliver all of the service and support necessary to implement Frontline Partnership solutions, Microsoft endorses HP Services as Worldwide Prime Integrator for Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, Microsoft BizTalk® Server 2006, Microsoft .NET® technologies, and Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

HP Services' global presence includes 550 services locations in over 160 countries. We also offer 24x7x365 support at 105 Response and Operations centers around the world.

In addition to Worldwide Operations Management Centers, HP operates Frontline Partnership Customer Solution Centers located in Bellevue, Washington; Valbonne, France; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Tokyo, Japan. These "proof-of-concept" facilities showcase Microsoft and HP solutions operating within complex, multivendor, and real-world IT environments.

Commitment means being there for customers today and tomorrow. HP and Microsoft are continuously working together to understand your evolving needs and use that knowledge to provide better solutions.
