Yet another big name IT vendor is joining OpenStack.
HP announced this week that it was going to be joining the open source OpenStack cloud infrastructure project. OpenStack is a year-old project originally started by NASA and Rackspace for delivering a cloud computing and storage platform. During the course of the past year, OpenStack has attracted more than 90 member organizations, including Dell, Citrix and Cisco.
“HP is taking an active role in the OpenStack community, and we see this as an opportunity to enable customers, partners and developers with unique infrastructure and development solutions across public, private and hybrid cloud environments,” Emil Sayegh, VP, Cloud Services, wrote in a blog post. “HP recognizes that open and interoperable cloud infrastructure and services are critical in delivering the next generation of cloud-based services to developers, businesses and consumers.”
