A few years ago, a limited number of enterprises used open source technology in their infrastructure. Today, it’s difficult to find an IT operation that does not leverage open source technology. Yet, some cloud providers would have you believe that OpenStack technology—“the” open source cloud platform—is not yet enterprise-ready. In reality, OpenStack computing is the fastest growing open source project worldwide, and it is being deployed by thousands of companies for business-critical workloads. As they take advantage of OpenStack in their own environment, these enterprises are seeking new ways to enable their development teams to deliver value to customers. The transformation takes many shapes and includes new tools, new processes, and often adopting a ‘cloud-native’ app architecture.

In this half-day session, you will learn how to integrate OpenStack and CloudFoundry technologies to develop, deploy and deliver cloud-native applications. Using real-world examples of how companies have implemented OpenStack technology, Sam Gazitt and Anand Bhadouria will discuss:

  • OpenStack architecture overview
  • Deploying an Enterprise Scale cloud using HP Helion OpenStack
  • Cloud Native Application Development using HP Helion Development Platform, a Cloud Foundry – based Platform-as-a-service offering for private clouds
    • How to get started with HP Helion Development Platform
    • How to push an app to the cloud PaaS
    • How to modify a cloud native app
    • Advanced cloud application development


  • Understand OpenStack architecture
  • Learn how to deploy an enterprise scale cloud environment by integrating OpenStack & CloudFoundry using the HP Helion portfolio
  • Learn how development teams can build cloud-native apps using open source tools with the HP Helion Development Platform, a CloudFoundry based PaaS

This session is sponsored by Hewlett-Packard Company.
