HP Announces Private Beta Program of HP Cloud Services

(This entry was cross-posted from the HP Scaling the Cloud blog and was authored by Emil Sayegh, VP, Cloud Services)


Today, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the HP Cloud Services private beta program. We are making this early access available so you can test, experience and provide input on our two initial cloud services: HP Cloud Compute and HP Cloud Object Storage. Both offerings are based on HP’s world class hardware and software with key elements of HP Converged Infrastructure and HP Software combined with a developer friendly, integration of OpenStack™ through our easy to use, web-based User Interface (UI) along with open, RESTful APIs.


At HP Cloud Services, our goal is to provide the next generation of cloud infrastructure, platform services and cloud solutions for developers, ISVs, and businesses of all sizes. We recognize that public cloud services should be open and transparent from end-to-end across APIs, infrastructure and software stack.  


We believe that by working closely with the developer community and combining the best open source technologies with HP’s hardware and software portfolio, we can create the right mix of capabilities that deliver best customer experience.  


Last month we announced that we joined OpenStack, an infrastructure cloud open source project.  HP developers are already active and many of our ideas will be shared at the upcoming OpenStack Design Summit and Conference, of which we are a sponsor.


The first two offerings in our private beta are compute and storage infrastructure-as-a-service offered as pay-as-you-go services that can be up and running within minutes. 


  • HP Cloud Compute allows you to deploy compute instances on-demand.  It lets you customize your instances to handle your unique workloads and add new instances to quickly scale. 


  • HP Cloud Object Storage provides you with scalable online storage capacity on-demand.  Object storage is ideal for archiving and backing up data, serving static content for web applications, and storing large public or private data sets, such as online files and media. 


We already collected some great feedback during our first development stage, which strongly influenced our private beta offerings.  Now we would like to hear from more of you and get your input on features, functionality and the overall experience, in order to ensure that we continue to create an offering that matches your needs.

HP intends to extend its full spectrum of cloud offerings spanning private, hybrid, and public architectures. You can have confidence that HP Cloud Services will have the same commitment to leadership that HP has with our existing cloud portfolio including HP CloudSystem and HP Enterprise Cloud Services.


If you want to find out what happens when the cloud meets one of the most recognized names in technology, we invite you to sign up for the HP Cloud Services free private beta to develop, test and run your applications. To register, simply visit We are accepting only a limited number of private beta applicants—so please register early.


Please stay tuned to this blog and our website at for further details on our offerings. Feel free to reach out to us on Twitter (@hpcloud) or on our blog for feedback or questions.


We look forward to hearing from you.
