Introducing Application PaaS with HP Cloud

Cloud and Virtualization
23 April 2:20pm - 3:10pm @ Ballroom H

Application PaaS or aPaaS is important for developers who want to build and run their applications in the cloud without having to deal with IaaS complexities directly. HP’s Converged Cloud strategy promises to help customers deliver and deploy services in the cloud leveraging open standards like OpenStack and a rich ecosystem of partner solutions. In this session you will become better versed with HP’s public cloud, our newly introduced Application PaaS, and how we address a wide variety of customer needs/use cases. We will also describe how developers can leverage aPaaS in HP Cloud today.
