Hewlett-Packard customers in Australia will receive a 20 percent discount off all data recovery services until November 17, 2006.
The discount applies to all data recovery performed on HP storage media and is part of a new partnership deal announced today between HP and CBL Data Recovery Technologies.
The company has been selected as the data recovery services partner for HP in Australia, China, India, Singapore and Taiwan.
Under the terms of a marketing alliance, HP will refer existing customers to CBL for data recovery services when hard drives, tapes and other storage media fail and data residing on these devices is inaccessible.
CBL CEO Bill Margeson said the company is ready to come to the rescue of HP customers when data loss disaster strikes and data on their HP server, notebook, PC or even HP digital camera is inaccessible.
HP marketing vice president for the Asia Pacific and Japan, Dennis Mark, said the alliance is timely as HP has just launched Total Care, a comprehensive lifecycle support and service program for customers.
