HP to launch Amazon's cloud computing competitor
The cloud computing service that HP is planning to roll out will have more business-oriented features.
New Delhi: Hewlett-Packard (HP) is reportedly all set to come up with its cloud computing service in next two months, which is said to be similar to Amazon Web services that delivers a set of services, which together form a computing platform "in the cloud".
According to a report from The New York Times, the cloud computing service that HP is planning to roll out will have more business-oriented features.
The report quoted Zorawar "Biri" Singh, senior VP and general manager of HP's cloud services as saying, "We're not just building a cloud for infrastructure," adding "Amazon has the lead there. We have to build a platform layer, with a lot of third-party services."
However, there are no reports as to how much the computing services would cost, but he opined "we are not coming at this at 8 cents a virtual computing hour, going to 5 cents."
HP's alternative to Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been afoot for over a year.
