Ubuntu Powers HP Public Cloud

Posted by kim0 // October 7th, 2011 // Uncategorized

Today our CEO Jane Silber announced at the OpenStack Conference in Boston that HP has chosen Ubuntu as one of the initial lead host and guest operating system powering their Public Cloud. HP and Canonical are working closely together during the current private beta to make certain that we provide the most secure, scalable, business-class cloud to companies of all sizes. We are excited to join with HP in recognizing that open and interoperable cloud infrastructure and services are critical in delivering the next generation of cloud-based services to developers, ISVs and businesses. Both companies share a common commitment to open source and both embrace the OpenStack community. With over 117 member companies the momentum behind OpenStack is truly game changing and promises to position it at the center of the next wave of computing.

This is an important announcement on several fronts – that OpenStack is seen as the platform of choice for building out the largest Public Clouds, and that Ubuntu has what it takes to power OpenStack clouds as a scalable and hardened host OS and responsive and flexible guest OS.

Ubuntu is the reference OS for OpenStack but like in any other open source project we need to earn our keep on a daily basis and having HP select us is a positive reflection of Ubuntu as a Cloud OS.

    Well, it sure can’t work on the 2 systems I bought this year: a core i3 PC desktop on which the mouse isn’t recognized after installation, and a core i5 MacBook Pro on which the CD doesn’t even boot.

  2. That’s indeed a very good new!

    Steve Ballmer, is that you? No one else appears to have problems with their MacBooks: http://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2011/06/install-ubuntu-1104-on-macbook-pro-81.html

    I’ve personally installed Ubuntu on two dozen disimilar systems and (other than one or two of them needing me to go into alsamixer to enable the correct audio levels) had no problems. If you’re 0 for 2, you either have extremely bad luck or you’re trolling.

    • it’s me jay, my name is ashar (admin of ubuntubuzz.com).
      as i write in there, the sound of my notebook works with the natty, but it’s only one speakers active (the right speaker but not the left, so the sound out not stereo).

      and also ..
      we i need to use NDISWRAPER to make the wireless works for me, until The Mactel teams show me the way to patch the kernel with new driver that dedicated for Kernel 3.2, So you think i’m in bad luck, i think so ..

    what is cloud ubuntu..anyone would tell me this.

  9. Asis says:

    happy to hear this!

    Macbooks don’t boot non-mac filesystem based disks without bootcamp. So before you blame Ubuntu, try to understand a bit how macs work.

    if the mouse isn’t recognized, then that might just be a simple driver issue and you can always try another mouse. They aren’t all that expensive these days. :)

    Glad to learn that your hard work is starting to be rewarded!
    Ubuntu 11.04 is wonderful, thank you

    Does this selection of Ubuntu to run as host on the HP cloud mean that HP is contracting with Canonical for multi-year engineering support services?

    Has HP made a firm commitment to fund continued Ubuntu development with 1%+ of the profits from their public cloud as part of their long term commitment to seeing a sustainable Ubuntu project?

    Will HP be reselling Canonical’s support services to HP cloud customers? Or will HP be offering their own in-house managed support levels that cover the OS with utility pricing to compete more directly with Rackspace’s managed cloud offering pricepoints?

      Sorry Jef, but we don’t publicly discuss the details of our business deals with Canonical partners.

      • Jef Spaleta says:

        Sure you do. This whole post is about one particular detail of a business arrangement. If you didn’t comment at all, I’d not know that HP had chosen Ubuntu for anything. Lest you forget it was a Canonical exec, not an HP exec, that actually made the public announcement. I’m having trouble finding any public statement from HP about it in fact.

        Canonical absolutely talks about details..just not the details that really matter to understanding whether Canonical has a sustainable revenue stream. Canonical likes to talk about the perception of success, not success itself. And I ask the questions about the details about more important matters.

        Have a nice day.

    I find the Ubunto choice an odd one. The cloud is still a very new concept for almost all users and companies, why increase the adoption hurdles by picking a non standard OS. Windows Azure seems to be the more logic choice. Or does HP really want to continue it’s move away from Microsoft. HP’s phone and tablet fiasco does not give me a lot of confidence they can deliver. A non technical CEO certainly won’t help.
