Podcast: Open Source Distributions vs Download


Enterprises considering OpenStack as their cloud platform must decide whether to purchase a pre-built, tested and support distribution, like HP Helion OpenStack or leverage their existing technical resources to create a custom internal distribution. In this podcast, I discuss this issue with Lon Tierney, OpenStack Professional Services, HP Helion.

To try the latest release of OpenStack pre-built and tested by the HP engineering team, download HP Helion OpenStack Community today. HP Helion OpenStack Community is pure OpenStack technology with no mix of proprietary or non-OpenStack tools based on the Juno release. Plus, it’s free to download under an open source license with an optional paid support contract.
