I recently had the pleasure of moderating a great discussion over at newvem around how to ensure and improve the health of your cloud efforts.
Through a series of announcements made at HP Discover Frankfurt (detail below), HP has signaled that it intends to build, support, and foster it’s partner ecosystem centered around it’s OpenStack-based IaaS offering rather than building supplementary services themselves – even for key services such as their choice of a PaaS solution in ActiveState Stackato .
Can a top tier technology infrastructure provider who has struggled with integrating even traditional product silos (servers & storage, software, PCs, etc.) pull off the traditional infrastructure vs. public cloud balancing act? It’s a tall feat – and one that perhaps could be done more rapidly and effectively with a new organization spin-off approach.
