HP Cloud 13.5 Release Supports Our Customers

Following this week’s post announcing new features to HP’s Public Cloud, we would like to share some additional context about our policy of transparency when we release new functionality.


The 13.5 release of HP Public Cloud carries forward our commitment to bringing more features and functionality to our enterprise customers. It delivers very real improvements to our public cloud technology and it represents a significant step forward in our commitment to OpenStack.


Our customers are eager to deploy more resource intensive workloads on HP Public Cloud and we are committed to delivering upon our customers’ needs. This is why the 13.5 release delivers increased capacity for resource-hungry workloads, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) capability through software defined networking, easier management of multi-AZ deployments, and higher memory instance flavors.


In addition to meeting our customer’s technology needs, we are also committed to transparency. Therefore, in addition to receiving updates about what is new and improved with each release, one of the clear expectations of HP’s enterprise customers is ongoing communication around known issues. We provide not just a listing of limitations or issues, but also guidance for any work-arounds.


At HP, we believe this type of transparency is a critical piece of how we partner with our customers to ensure they are achieving business outcomes—improved agility, management security and simplicity –with their hybrid environments. We continue to give our customers the world class 24x7x365 service and support that they expect. We will help them with any issues they encounter and actively engage with the OpenStack community to provide the latest feedback on any technology issues.
