Enterprise Cloud Q&A with HP Helion: Can I use AWS and a Private Cloud?


Welcome to our new weekly cloud blog series where we answer common cloud questions our enterprise customers are asking.


Question: Can I use AWS and a Private Cloud?


HP has many customers who are currently leveraging the public cloud product from Amazon and are looking for a way to also leverage a private cloud as part of a hybrid cloud solution. This common industry challenge has led HP Helion to offer an open-source, secure and proven private cloud product for AWS users; HP Helion Eucalyptus.



HP Helion Eucalyptus provides open source implementations of many Amazon Web Services so you can confidently deploy AWS applications into a private cloud without changing tools, processes, or application code. In this video you can see a demonstration of this concept:
