HP has just dropped the news on the private beta program of their HP Cloud Services, letting those who are interested (and qualify) to test, experience and provide input on both the HP Cloud Compute and HP Cloud Object Storage. These two are based on HP’s world class hardware and software with key elements of HP Converged Infrastructure and HP Software, working together in tandem with a developer friendly, integration of OpenStack via HP’s very own easy to use, web-based User Interface (UI) along with open, RESTful APIs.
The whole idea of HP Cloud Services? It is meant to deliver the next generation of cloud infrastructure, platform services and cloud solutions for developers, ISVs, and businesses – regardless of size. Public cloud services should remain not only open but transparent as well, ranging from end-to-end across APIs to infrastructure and software stack.
Hence, HP decided to take up the step by working even more closely with the developer community while merging the best open source technologies with HP’s hardware and software portfolio. As for HP Cloud Compute, it enables you to deploy compute instances on-demand, while HP Cloud Object Storage delivers scalable online storage capacity on-demand. [Press Release]
