HP launches professional services business for OpenStack
Hewlett-Packard Co. may have been late to the party for the OpenStack cloud computing platform, but it’s trying to make up for lost time.
The company just rolled out a dedicated consultancy practice that will focus exclusively on helping customer implement the open-source cloud platform in their environments. The launch of the unit comes on the heels of Teradata Corp.’s acquisition of Think Big Analytics Inc., a top provider of professional services for Hadoop, which is another fast-growing community project that also suffers from a talent shortage.
The deal, in turn, followed shortly after HP started offering customers assistance with setting up the batch processing framework and integrating it into their existing systems. The company’s new Helion OpenStack Professional Services portfolio offers a similar value proposition that spans the deployment lifecycle, beginning with the initial assessment phase.
