LONDON, June 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HashiCorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: HCP), The Infrastructure Cloud™ company, today announced at HashiDays London a European expansion of the HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP), starting with HCP Terraform®. The European expansion of HCP — a unification of HashiCorp’s products onto a single platform — along with enhancements across HashiCorp’s solutions for Infrastructure and Security Lifecycle Management, bring together The Infrastructure Cloud to unlock developer potential while controlling cloud costs and risk for customers across the globe.

HashiCorp’s forthcoming 2024 State of Cloud Strategy Survey indicates that only 8% of respondents have attained high operational maturity in the cloud, and 60% are experiencing a shortage of skilled staff. When enterprises reach operational maturity and find the skilled talent needed to implement platform teams, they can improve efficiency, reduce costs, and prevent security and compliance risks. To help enterprises build successful cloud programs, HashiCorp is delivering a unified cloud platform and systematic approach to Infrastructure and Security Lifecycle Management.

“I’m pleased to unify our cloud offerings through the HashiCorp Cloud Platform. With our expansion into Europe, starting with HCP Terraform, we’re continuing to bring new capabilities to help our customers manage the full lifecycle of infrastructure and security in the cloud,” said Armon Dadgar, CTO and Co-Founder at HashiCorp. “HCP provides organizations with the critical tools they need to effectively run centralized platform teams and realize the benefits of increased cloud maturity. Our upcoming State of Cloud Strategy Survey shows that most cloud-mature respondents have standardized platform teams throughout their organization, and many other organizations are looking for help getting started. With these announcements, HashiCorp is well positioned to be their partner for operating in the cloud successfully.”
