Beat Marten Mickos Personal Best at Installing HP Helion OpenStack®

Stephen_Spector

During his first few weeks overseeing the HP Cloud business, Marten Mickos (@martenmickos) has already set the record in the HP Helion executive team for the proper installation of HP Helion OpenStack®. During an HP Helion Installfest last week, Marten successfully installed HP Helion OpenStack across 9 nodes in 98 minutes. While his time leading Eucalyptus gave him a solid private cloud grounding, he has admittedly just scratched the surface of OpenStack technology's full capability.

 

Of course, our customers and engineers claim much faster results, but nevertheless, the challenge is on. It’s beat Marten Mickos time. Tweet your time to @HPHelionCloud with #MickosChallenge, and we will send you our latest HP Helion classic shirt or a potential opportunity to see Flo Rida at our launch event on Thursday the 23rd of October.

 

Here are the tech specs for Marten’s install:

 

HP Proliant SL230 Blades Gen 8

2x Xeon E5-2670 @ 2.60GHz (32 cores)

98GB Memory

4x1TB Disk Raid 5

9 Nodes

 

Here are a few action shots!
