For months, we’ve heard the rumblings about HP’s public cloud. Insiders have been offering invites. HP’s intentions have been no secret, but now it is official. The HP Public cloud will open to the public on May 10.
The move is part of HP’s intent to be a public cloud services provider and marry that with its private and hybrid cloud strategies.
The HP Public Cloud is similar to Amazon Web Services in some respects but the difference is in HP’s idea of how the traditional enterprise fits into the model. Aspects of it are built on OpenStack.
