HP Brings Power of OpenStack to the Enterprise
Posted on 16-Apr-2013 08:26 | Tags Filed under: News



HP today extended its commitment to the OpenStack community with new and enhanced HP Converged Cloud offerings that enable enterprises to increase agility, speed innovation and lower costs.

The company is integrating OpenStack technology to deliver enterprise-grade solutions across its private, public and hybrid cloud portfolio.

Over the past two years, HP has been a top contributor to the advancement of the OpenStack project in infrastructure operations, software and developer tools. HP’s contributions have focused on continuous integration and quality assurance, which has supported the development of a reliable and scalable cloud platform that is equipped to handle mission-critical production workloads.

“Enterprises are embracing open-source cloud solutions to increase workload portability and avoid vendor lock-in,” said Saar Gillai, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Cloud, HP. “HP provides the industry’s most comprehensive hybrid cloud solution leveraging OpenStack across private and public cloud environments.”

HP CloudSystem, the company’s flagship private cloud solution, now features integrated OpenStack technology with the latest release, HP CloudSystem 7.2. By combining the flexibility of open-source software with proven, enterprise-focused functionality for provisioning, managing and scaling clouds, HP CloudSystem leverages OpenStack technology to enable support of “bursting” capabilities and KVM resource pools. This allows enterprises to tap external resources directly from HP CloudSystem for pay-as-you-go capacity.

Additionally, HP introduced two new HP CloudSystem Bursting Activation Services that allow enterprises and service providers to reliably and quickly install and configure cloud-bursting capabilities. HP experts can help clients configure the HP CloudSystem software needed to burst from one HP CloudSystem to another, providing access to additional capacity across multiple HP CloudSystems and enabling service providers to deliver on-demand capacity to customers. HP also can educate IT staff on operating and managing the HP CloudSystem bursting technology to simplify the startup of hybrid clouds and accelerate efficient resource use.

HP also expanded its public cloud portfolio with new HP Cloud Messaging, available as a service to enable developers to build more fault-tolerant applications and reduce application downtime by duplicating messages on multiple servers. Using the emerging OpenStack Marconi API standard, HP Cloud Messaging serves as an intermediary for trading information between applications by offering language and framework independence without any system installation or configuration.

To support the need that many larger organizations and service providers have for enterprise-class storage, HP submitted to the OpenStack Foundation a blueprint and software for orchestration and provisioning of Fibre Channel Storage in private and hybrid cloud deployments. In line with this contribution, the HP Converged Storage portfolio—including HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage and HP StoreVirtual Storage—now supports OpenStack technology across both iSCSI and Fibre Channel protocols, providing the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of a cloud-based open-source platform to customers with mission-critical environments and high resiliency requirements.
