The idea of a software-defined data center is not just another marketing acronym, said Steve Lankard, CTO and vice president of technology solutions architecture for OnX, a Toronto-based solution provider and HP channel partner.
“The industry has seen the advantage of using industry-standard hardware with compute resources, and is looking to do the same with storage and networking,” Lankard told CRN. “They see the advantages that come from standardization of components, a move away from vendor lock-in, and a faster speed to deploying assets.”
HP has become a leader when it comes to technology for building OpenStack-based clouds and has been making big bets on that technology with its own HP Helion OpenStack cloud, Lankard said.
“We see a lot of opportunities to provide the technology and services for OpenStack using HP,” he said. “We’re doing it now.”
OnX has proven experience providing technology infrastructure solutions that deliver strategic business outcomes for our clients.
