At the recent Cloud Foundry Summit, HP Helion presented “Why open platforms matters to enterprise developers?” as part of Manav Mishra’s keynote.


Keynote Themes

Keynote Abstract


Today, enterprise developers need the ability to easily develop and deploy applications across different types of cloud deployments, in a framework of their choice. Sounds simple. However, in today's world developers need to understand the entire cloud underpinning, and enterprise applications require open and flexible architectures that deliver consistent access to infrastructure and highly available services. Join Manav Mishra, Director, Product, HP Cloud, for an engaging discussion on HP’s strategy and innovation around HP Helion, the role of Cloud Foundry and OpenStack® and why it matters to today's enterprise developers.
