HP gives some pro PC buyers free Box cloud storage

updated 06:35 pm EST, Mon December 5, 2011

Latest company to team with cloud storage provider

HP has announced a program that will provide free Box cloud storage for customers who purchase select Compaq pro-level desktop machines. The computer maker appears to be expanding its collaboration with the cloud service provider, following a similar promotion that brought 50GB in free storage for the TouchPad tablet.

Several other companies in the smartphone arena have also confirmed partnerships with Box. LG and Sony Ericsson recently announced promotions that will provide smartphone buyers with free lifetime 50GB accounts.

Box offered its own promotion for the iPad, attempting to woo prospective iCloud users with a free alternative, however the deal has since expired.

The LG and Sony Ericsson announcements and TouchPad promos focused on consumers, however HP's latest offering will provide additional access to Box enterprise features. The program includes Compaq 6200 and 6005 Pro Series PCs, along with Compaq 8200 Elite Series desktops. Pro Series buyers will receive 10GB of free storage and special deals on annual rates for additional capacities, while Elite Series customers can access unlimited storage and enterprise sync free for one year.
