Xerox Signs Six-Year Deal with India's HCL

HCL Technologies on Monday announced that it has signed a six-year, multi-regional data centre services and transformation deal with Xerox Corporation. It's learnt that the deal size is about $100 million.

The deal spans disaster recovery, data centre hosting and migration, virtualisation and consolidation across Xerox's data centres in North America and Europe. The Indian IT firm will also centralise and stan-dardise Xerox's data centres' infrastructure.

Last year, the two companies announced a strategic global alliance under which HCL became the systems integrator for Xerox's managed print services offering for enterprises.

"Data centre environments are the heart of our business operations and we look to partner with companies that can manage our centres and take them to the next level," Xerox chief information officer John McDermott said.

HCL Technologies Infrastructure Services Division's North America senior VP R Srikrishna said, "This engagement is a significant mile-stone for HCL and further enhances our credibility for managing complex, multi-regional data centres."

HCL recently bagged a $170-million contract from Microsoft for providing technology services for its online services business. Last month, it secured a $350-million total IT services outsourcing contract from Readers' Digest Association (RDA). The Indian IT firm will provide applications development and maintenance services and infrastructure support to the New York-headquartered media firm.
