Hewlett-Packard is reaffirming its strong commitment to the open-source OpenStack cloud platform today, with a $1 billion, two-year investment in research and development and a new Helion cloud platform initiative.
Helion is the new brand name for HP's OpenStack efforts and includes a full OpenStack distribution that will have both community and commercial editions. Additionally, HP is building its own platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technology, dubbed the Helion Developer Platform, that is based on the open-source Cloud Foundry platform. Rounding out HP's Helion initiatives are professional services to help enterprises get up and running with the cloud as well as a legal indemnification program.
