HP joining OpenStack and the announcement of the private beta for HP Cloud Services has raised a lot of good questions from the community. What exactly does it mean? How will HP Cloud Services incorporate OpenStack in its products and broad portfolio? What role HP will play within the OpenStack community? All great questions that we intend to share with you. With developers now signing up for our private beta we can share a bit more about our plans, including our contributions to OpenStack, and perspective on what it will take to create an open and transparent, business grade cloud.
