HP Says It Isn't Abandoning the Public Cloud After All

Did an HP executive misspeak or is the company unsure of its strategy?

Last week, several news organizations, including DevX, reported that HP planned to shut down its public cloud computing services after executive Bill Hilf told The New York Times, "We thought people would rent or buy computing from us. It turns out that it makes no sense for us to go head-to-head." Now HP is saying those reports were not true. "Bill's quote was interpreted as HP is exiting the public cloud, which is not the case," said the company. "HP's commitment to its cloud strategy remains unchanged since our launch of HP Helion nearly one year ago."

Hilf added, "Of course, developers and IT operations increasingly want a variety of services and options, often driven by cost and resource availability. In addition to our own public cloud, enterprises often use a combination of providers, such as: AWS, Google, Azure and Alibaba. We believe the ability to support and integrate different public cloud environments and services is an essential part of hybrid delivery for the enterprise."
