Inside HP’s Helion OpenStack Cloud Strategy

Earlier this month, Hewlett-Packard announced its new $1 billion Helion Cloud effort as the company’s own OpenStack cloud distribution. It’s a move that redefines HP’s approach to the cloud and how it plans to be a key player in the marketplace.

In a video interview with eWEEK, Bill Hilf, vice president of product management for HP Cloud, discusses how the Helion Cloud strategy was born and what it means to HP moving forward. Hilf is one of the key executives driving HP’s cloud strategy forward and reports to Martin Fink, HP’s CTO.
