HP launches a Global Cloud Network
HP has announced a new global cloud network. HP Vice President Martin Fink used his keynote address at the HP Discover 2014 event in Las Vegas to unveil the new HP Helion Network.
The network will include service providers, partners, developers, system integrators, and value added resellers. Helion will offer cloud space, as well as network-driven services like secure cloud links. HP says the Helion Network will be "hardware agnostic."
According to the press release, the Helion Network offers enterprise customers:
- An open, secure, and agile hybrid IT environment with no vendor lock-in, which enables workload portability between on- and off-premises environments.
- Access to an expanded enterprise-grade cloud services portfolio that includes horizontal and vertical applications, as well as network-enhanced services such as secure cloud networking, enabling customers to meet local and multinational hybrid requirements.
- The ability to meet country-specific data regulations regarding data sovereignty, retention, and protection.
At the core of the Helion Network is a collection of service providers. HP's "PartnerOne for Cloud" includes more than 110 service providers around the world. Other partners participating in the Helion Network include Intel and AT&T.
Customers will use the network to transfer applications between different cloud environments. Users will also get access to a big cloud service portfolio, and the network will ensure compliance with national data security regulations.
