HP and Disney sign 10-year hardware deal

Hewlett-Packard is to supply hardware to The Walt Disney Company in a 10-year deal.

The announcement was made at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando kick-starts a joint advertising campaign to promote Mission: Space, a new attraction at Disney's Epcot Center, which was designed by both companies.

Neither company disclosed the potential size of the 10-year contract, nor did they specify what hardware will be supplied by HP to Disney as part of the deal.

One of HP's first sales as a company was an oscillator to help Walt Disney enhance the musical score for the animated film Fantasia in 1937, Fiorina said. Since then, Disney has purchased a great deal of hardware from HP, including the 70,000 HP PCs and 10,000 Intel servers in use.
