Brewing giant SABMiller has signed a multimillion-pound outsourcing deal with HP.

The maker of Grolsch, Coors and Peroni has contracted HP to provide support for its users and IT infrastructure as part of a project to save money and standardise IT across the regions in which the brewer operates.

The company will see its servers and storage consolidated and virtualised, using HP's BladeSystem products, plus the provision of services to cover helpdesk, desktop management, and Exchange email support.

The contract is worth more than $100m and will last for eight years.

Andrew Derodra, business development director at SABMiller Europe said, "We look forward to a productive business partnership."
