You can have it all: Fast to market plus reliability and security


By Derek Howard, Worldwide Service Provider Marketing Manager, HP Enterprise Group


Finding the balance between getting new services to market first and doing it reliably and securely is a tall order for cloud service providers. You know it’s important to act fast to start generating revenue from new services. But it doesn’t matter how quickly you get them to market if these services put you or your customers at risk or worse, if they simply don’t perform as promised. Today, you can have both with OpenStack® technology in your game plan. Our latest video shows you the key points to consider for your plan.


OpenStack® technology: For service providers who want it all

OpenStack software changes the game for service providers who have struggled with weighing the time-to-market advantages of public cloud services against the perceived security and greater control that a private cloud offers. Fully open sourceand built on open standards, OpenStack technology gives you the freedom to design across a hybrid model – rather than having to face an either/or decision of public vs. private cloud.


OpenStack technology also enables you to move away from proprietary solutions, whose steep licensing costs can price businesses right out of the cloud services market.


The key to succeeding with an OpenStack-based cloud is having a technology partner who will deliver a solution you can be confident in—one that’s a result of extensive OpenStack technology experience and expertise. If you’re concerned about your own level of OpenStack experience, or your ability to support a production environment, an experienced partner with a robust solution is critical. This is where HP Helion OpenStack® comes in.
