HP and its partners are in a mission to enhance CloudSystem, a platform for building out hybrid cloud computing environments. It is considered to be the best of all integration products and services from Hewlett-Packard (HPQ). HP Discover 2015 conference was the foundation for this extension plan. Earlier this week, HP extended that platform by offering tighter integration with the Helion platform-as-a-service (Paas) based on open source Cloud Foundry software. HP CloudSystem 9.0 now supports VMware vSphere virtual machines, bare metal servers, Red Hat KVM, Microsoft Hyper-V and the latest version of HP Cloud Service Automation software. HP is all set to provide support for Swift OpenStack Object Storage and done everything to deliver CloudSystem as a virtual appliance that can be set up in a few hours.
Notably, HP also announced a beta release of HP Helion Managed Cloud Services for HP Helion OpenStack Managed Private Cloud and HP Helion Eucalyptus Managed Private Cloud. In addition, it also supports the HP Helion PaaS environment through its managed services offerings. Shashi Mysore, the director of product management for HP Helion told that the framework was specifically designed to provide IT organizations control over where workloads are simultaneously deployed on private or public clouds. He also added that CloudSystem 9.0 is a framework for building multiple types private clouds which in turn can easily be integrated with multiple public clouds.
