The companies said the alliance was formed to address enterprise customer demand for reliability, growth of operations, reduction of costs and increase in profitability.
The first release from the joint venture will feature PSINet's new dedicated-hosting services on HP-UX and Windows NT system servers, along with the HP OpenView management system.
The integrated service package is immediately available in the U.S. and is slated for future release in markets including Toronto, London and Amsterdam upon PSINet's completion of its worldwide data-centers in these regions.
The companies tested new dedicated-hosting services on HP servers during the past six months with select PSINet customers including Mirabilis ICQ division.
"The alliance with PSINet is a major step in our efforts to make the Internet a more reliable and predictable utility for critical applications that will allow businesses to expand their operations," said Nigel Ball, general manager for HP's Internet and Application Systems Division.
