HP has launched its Helion CloudSystem 9.0, a private cloud enterprise offering that can help organisations manage mixed cloud environments. The company has also launched a complementary piece of hardware on which the new software can be deployed on.
Many organisations today have diverse application and deployment needs. The Helion cloud platform is compatible with the most commonly used operating systems, standard infrastructure and operations management tools like hypervisors to accommodate these demands. The goal is to enable enterprises to be able to embrace cloud in their organisation for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) or platform-as-a-service (PaaS) while still being able to make use of existing IT assets.
One of the draw cards of CloudSystem is its hybrid cloud management capabilities across different private and public cloud environments. It can work with Microsoft Azure, AWS, HP, Helion Public Cloud, HP Helion OpenStack and VMware. Customers can move workloads between AWS and their own datacentres using HP Helion Eucalyptus software. This gives enterprises flexibility in adopting cloud services from a variety of vendors at the same time.
HP Helion CloudSystem 9.0 also supports the following:
- OpenStack software and Cloud Foundry application programming interfaces (APIs) to access and control cloud resources directly.
- The latest version of HP Cloud Service Automation for single pane control of multiple cloud environments
HP CloudSystem 9.0 can be rolled out as a standalone software or integrated with the newly launched HP ConvergedSystem 700 which has been optimised for it. Both are available now and you can find out more information over at the HP website.
