Drivers such as data growth, software-defined datacentre technologies, and the Internet of Things (IoT) continue to fuel Cloud adoption.

As such, enterprises are deploying OpenStack technology to overcome private and public Cloud challenges, including costly vendor lock-in, lack of control or customisability, and inability to scale applications for the Cloud, according to HP.

As a testament to its ongoing commitment to open source Cloud technology, the company’s made multiple contributions to the OpenStack Kilo release, including new converged storage management automation and new flash storage technologies.

It includes the following new capabilities: evaluator scheduler, adaptive flash cache, thin deduplication with express indexing, as well as manila files services.

HP Asia-Pacific and Japan Cloud division vice-president and general manager, Aman Dokania, said the aim of this is to support flexible, enterprise-class Clouds, while simplifying provisioning and improving performance and resiliency for consolidated block and file workloads.

Dokania added HP’s storage contributions to the OpenStack Kilo release focus on two strategic goals: supporting application-centric, automated, converged storage management; and helping make environments that use Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) server virtualisation technology enterprise-ready.

“Enterprises today struggle with the ‘all-in-one’ Cloud model because they don’t use a single operating system or database software or management tool. HP’s approach is to support a flexible hybrid Cloud infrastructure with open source technologies as its core DNA,” he claimed.

In addition, Dokania said HP intends to incorporate support for OpenStack Kilo into future HP Helion OpenStack releases.
