HPE is no longer developing OpenStack, but it’s still offering a new OpenStack distro and services.
If you thought HPE was getting out of the cloud business, I couldn’t blame you. In late 2015, HPE gave up on its public OpenStack-based Helion cloud. Then, early this year, all of HPE’s OpenStack developers moved over to SUSE. So, was HPE bidding the cloud, and OpenStack in particular, goodbye? Nope.
In Boston this week at OpenStack Summit, HPE released HPE Helion OpenStack 5.0. This release Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) based cloud is built on the OpenStack Newton codebase and adheres tightly to application programming interface (API) standards and services. Since OpenStack’s open APIs are an important part of why it’s popular with so many companies, that’s no small matter.
