Volume VII, Issue 11

and beyond, open standards lead the way to effective, innovative solutions.

IT investments for an open, agile, secure environment that scales quickly and
easily. HP Helion OpenStack—a commercial distribution built on OpenStack
technology—provides an enterprise grade cloud platform to help you build,
manage and consume hybrid clouds.
