HP Helion OpenStack: A Tale of One Cloud


The new style of IT demands open, scalable, and secure technology as the key features in massively scalable cloud products. To deliver these features to enterprise customers, HP has chosen to develop clouds based on the industry leading open source cloud project, OpenStack®. From a single cloud platform, HP delivers private, public, managed/hosted, and hybrid clouds with seamless integration, manageability, and reliability.


The open cloud platform available from HP is delivered in two methods:

  • HP Helion OpenStack - An enterprise-grade commercial distribution that enables you to more easily build, manage, and consume open source-based hybrid clouds in a resilient, maintainable platform with no vendor lock-in
  • HP Helion OpenStack Community - A free, downloadable version ideal for pilots, proof of concepts, and small-scale product workloads

HP Helion OpenStack

The commercial edition of our cloud platform, HP Helion OpenStack, delivers the complete, scalable cloud solution for enterprises looking to deploy public, private, hybrid, or managed/hosted solutions. It is the infrastructure layers (IaaS) for HP Helion Development Platform cloud native-application development, and integrates with other HP cloud technologies such as HP Cloud Service Automation (CSA) for extending management capabilities, and HP Helion Content Depot for expanded object storage.
