Transparency in open-source world becoming the norm | #OpenStack

When it comes to modernizing IT, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. (HPE) wants to be the front runner. Its plan: working past the current issue to include the problems that lie in wait. HPE’s Helion Group is helping the company work toward this goal, and an announcement concerning HPE Helion OpenStack 3.0 is expected shortly.

Mark Interrante, SVP of cloud engineering at HPE Helion, didn’t show all his cards during his interview with Stu Miniman (@stu) and Brian Gracely (@bgracely), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team. However, Interrante did hint that the latest version is forthcoming, stating the next iteration of Helion will have “some bits from what we are working on” with Helion 2.0. He then went on to discuss the industry’s changing attitude toward open source, HPE’s partnerships, and how transparency is becoming the norm.

HPE as ‘one member of a large constellation’

In regards to OpenStack, Interrante said HPE is able to use it in ways they never thought possible and that HPE wants to “meet the customers where they are” and not be “too preachy about that” process. Interrante remarked that HPE is “one member of a large constellation of open-source” developers.

He described HPE Helion as the center of several “concentric circles” and a member of the ecosystem. And with Helion’s focus on multi-cloud systems, the industry’s evolving constellation should continue to be quite the show.
