The curious case of why Red Hat won’t certify on HP’s OpenStack distro | #HPdiscover
HP has the ability to run Red Hat’s distribution on its Helion OpenStack platform and welcomes a certification for it. So, why won’t Red Hat certify it on HP? At HP Discover 2014 in Las Vegas earlier this month, Saar Gillai, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for HP Cloud, joined John Furrier and Dave Vellante on theCUBE and talked about his bewilderment of why Red Hat won’t certify on HP’s platform.
The Background Story
When Vellante asked Gillai to explain the story behind this subject, he responded with two points. First of all, Gillaia believes that there shouldn’t be this artificial connection between Linux and OpenStack. He said that this wasone of the things he noticed when he talked to customers. Some Linux vendors try to create an artificial connection that, when using OpenStack, requires the use of a certain version of Linux. As a result, customers potentially end up paying various licensing fees.
