Stephen_Spector on ‎06-06-2014 01:05 PM

As enterprise customers see the business value of operating private clouds or leveraging the power of big data, the need for a durable, scalable, and low cost unstructured data storage system becomes paramount. Many companies including HP have turned to the OpenStack community and its proven object storage system, OpenStack Swift


Our experience working directly with the OpenStack community has driven innovation in our hardware with the HP ProLiant SL4550 Gen8 Server, fine-tuned for OpenStack Swift deployments. Delivering petabyte scalability in a cost effective solution ensures your enterprise the opportunity to maximize the value of your storage and access of unstructured data.



To better understand this hardware and open source software solution, HP has created a Solution Brief to further detail the opportunity for your company.
