HP has announced the closure of their Helion public cloud services, early next year with emphasizing and upgrading their open stack hybrid infrastructure for cloud computing.
GreatResponder.com Not long ago HP let slip that the public cloud may not be a spot it needs to contend, and on Wednesday it finished on that recommendation with an announcement that it will close its Helion Public Cloud for good. The main reason behind this decision is that HP wants to double down its private and managed cloud computing services, and they know hybrid infrastructure is the future of IT organizations.
“We have made the decision to double down on our private and managed cloud capabilities,” wrote Bill Hilf, senior vice president and general manager for HP Cloud, in a blog post announcing the news. He further noted that “Our customers are telling us that the lines between all the different cloud manifestations are blurring,”
Hybrid infrastructure’s market is evolving very rapidly. From medium to large, all enterprises want a hybrid arrangement in order to meet their full range of needs. These organizations are pushing to provide efficient and managed IT services and private cloud, with a fast paced delivery of these solutions. That is the main reason behind the decision of HP.
HP is already providing a great support for Amazon Web Services and made it a part of their HP Helion Eucalyptus and they are also working with Microsoft to provide support for Office 365 and the Azure with their hybrid infrastructure. They are providing these services to satisfy the needs of their customers who are willing to access the existing large scale public cloud providers
He further said “we will sunset our HP Helion Public Cloud offering on January 31, 2016. As we have before, we will help our customers design, build and run the best cloud environments suited to their needs – based on their workloads and their business and industry requirements”.
HP plans to concentrate on two notable zones: Bringing efficiencies to clients’ on-premises situations, and furnishing its accomplices with HP equipment and programming to manufacture facilitated cloud. HP also puts forward its vision to provide speed, agility and cost benefits of cloud computing. It also explained their idea of exploring all possibilities of open source to provide a flexible, reliable and secure platform for organizations to progress with confidence.
