HP has released the ninth version of HP Helion CloudSystem, its cloud orchestration suite. It comes in two versions: Enterprise for large organizations and Foundation for smaller firms. Designed for hybrid cloud computing environments, it allows enterprises to manage and move workloads between public and private clouds, including infrastructure based on OpenStack, HP Helion, AWS and Microsoft Azure.
"Enterprise customers have a range of needs in moving to the cloud — some need to cloud-enable traditional workloads, while others seek to build next generation 'cloud native' apps using modern technologies like OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, and Docker," said Bill Hilf, senior VP for HP Helion product and service management. "The expanded support for multiple hypervisors and cloud environments in HP Helion CloudSystem 9.0 gives enterprises and service providers added flexibility to gain cloud benefits for their existing and new applications."
