HP to base client virtualization service on CANCOM - AHP Private Cloud 
(AHP - application hosting platform)

Munich, Germany, 29 April 2014 - HP has chosen CANCOM's AHP Private Cloud
architecture for the client virtualization component of its Enterprise
Service for small and medium sized enterprises (approximately 500 to 7000
users). HP will operate the solution at its computer centers. It will add
further services as required and market the solution together with CANCOM.
The aim is to provide SME clients with a turnkey solution that reflects
HP's 'new style of IT' paradigm supporting virtual clients.

The CANCOM architecture will allow HP to expand its portfolio by
introducing a cloud solution for virtual clients that meets the needs of
small and medium-sized enterprises. The deal with HP means that CANCOM has
attracted one of the world's biggest providers of hosting and cloud
services as a partner for its private cloud platform. Clients stand to
benefit from the extremely high standards of security, availability and
flexibility offered by HP at its computer centers. HP's global presence
will also support CANCOM's international expansion.

The CANCOM AHP Private Cloud allows clients to access a tailored,
virtualized Windows desktop (including business applications) wherever and
whenever required using any Internet-compatible equipment, e.g. mobile
devices, tablets, notebooks, and thin clients.

The CANCOM AHP Private Cloud makes it possible to recreate any workplace
scenario, whether the user is traveling, at the office, working from home,
or at the point of sale. Support for unified communication & collaboration
(UCC) is provided on the basis of Microsoft Lync and Sharepoint.

One of the platform's great strengths is a comprehensive security
architecture that covers every single area, e.g. authentication,
governance, risk and compliance.

The highly automated CANCOM AHP Private Cloud platform supports multiple
clients and multi-farm environments, thus allowing users to work at the
same time with different versions of applications and Windows operating
systems.

Efficient change and release management is assured by a multi-system
landscape.

"We are proud that the market leader HP has chosen our CANCOM AHP Private
Cloud platform for the client virtualization component of its Enterprise
Service for small and medium sized enterprises. That gives us a hosting and
sales partner with extremely high standards of security, availability and
flexibility and a global supply chain," commented Rudolf Hotter, Member of
CANCOM's Executive Board.

CANCOM SE is listed in Germany's TecDAX index. It has positioned itself as
a cloud transformation partner and has been awarded the title of Cloud
Leader by the prestigious IT research firm Experton Group. In the fiscal
year 2013, the Group generated annual sales revenue of EUR 613 million and
had 2,360 employees.
