HP To Invest More Than $1 billion In Open Source Cloud Products


HP today introduced the HP Helion portfolio of cloud products and services and announced plans to invest more than $1 billion over the next two years on cloud-related product and engineering initiatives.

HP Helion incorporates existing HP cloud offerings, new OpenStack technology - based products, and professional and support services under a unified portfolio.

"Customer challenges today extend beyond cloud. They include how to manage, control and scale applications in a hybrid environment that spans multiple technology approaches," said Martin Fink, executive vice president and chief technology officer, HP. "HP Helion provides the solutions and expertise customers need to select the right deployment model for their needs and obtain the greatest return for their investment."

As part of the HP Helion portfolio, HP introduced several new cloud products and services, including:

- HP Helion OpenStack Community edition - A commercial product line of OpenStack that is delivered, tested and supported by HP. Available today, the community edition is a free version designed for proofs of concept, pilots and basic production workloads. A commercial edition that addresses the needs of global enterprises and service providers will be released in the coming months.

- HP Helion Development Platform - A Platform as a Service (PaaS) based on Cloud Foundry, offering IT departments and developers an open platform to build, deploy and manage applications. HP plans to release a preview version later this year.

- HP's OpenStack Technology Indemnification Program - Protects HP's customers using HP Helion OpenStack code from third-party patent, copyright and trade-secret infringement claims directed to OpenStack code alone or in combination with Linux code.

- HP Helion OpenStack Professional Services - A new practice made up of HP?s team of consultants, engineers and cloud technologists to assist the company's customers with cloud planning, implementation and operational needs.

HP Helion OpenStack - based cloud services will be made available globally via HP's partner network of more than 110 service providers worldwide and in HP data centers. The company plans to provide OpenStack-based public cloud services in 20 data centers worldwide over the next 18 months. HP will also enable HP PartnerOne for Cloud partners to deliver and resell OpenStack-based cloud services.

HP last week also striked a deal with Taiwanese contract manufacturer Foxconn Technology Group to make servers aimed at companies that provide cloud computing services.

Amazon.com and Google recently slashed prices of most of their cloud computing services as other companies join the fray.

Cisco Systems has laid out plans in March to offer cloud computing services, pledging to spend $1 billion over the next two years, while Microsoft said it will increase its cloud storage offering for business users 40-fold.
