HP updates its cloud portfolio

Posted by Kenneth van Surksum   |   Monday, December 10th, 2012   |  

During HP Discover which was held in Frankfurt Germany last week, HP announced some updates to its Cloud Portfolio which HP calls HP CloudSystem. HPs Cloud portfolio consists of solutions from other vendors, with supplementary tools provided by HP making up the whole stack.

First of all, HP announced the release of HP Cloud Compute, its public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution based on OpenStack. HP also announced the release of HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) version 3.1. its management platform for deploying cloud services providing better support for the KVM, Hyper-V and ESX hypervisors. HP also released Continuous Delivery Automation (CDA) version 1.1, which automates cloud application releases.

HP also announced a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. It leverages technology from a company called ActiveState which has a solution called Stackato which is based on VMware’s Cloud Foundry.

HP can now offer Cloud solutions for customers on-premise, off-premise or in a hybrid scenario. Services offered can be on the IaaS, PaaS or Saas level. HP does rely on external technology though, which in a certain way is good because that technology is proven. On the other hand HP is making itself very dependent on those technologies as well.
