BANGALORE, INDIA: Hewlett-Packard announced that it is taking out its Cloud Object Storage and Cloud CDN from public beta stage and will start offering them to customers from August 1, 2012 onwards. HP’s cloud is based on OpenStack technology

HP commits that its Cloud CDN will be available 99.95 per cent or more of the time in a given calendar month. And if it fails to meet this commitment, it is ready to apply a service credit to users’ accounts.

The HP Cloud Object Storage can be used for archiving and backing up data, serving static content for web applications and to store large public or private data sets like online files and media.

Objects stored in HP Cloud Object Storage are replicated three times across physically separated availability zones with dual power and dual internet connections. It runs 100 per cent on high-end HP servers.

It has native support for object sizes from 1 byte to 5 GB. And, if it is larger than 5 GB, ‘with chunking, you can store objects of any size by easily breaking files into segments.’

HP Cloud CDN is powered by Akamai. HP Cloud CDN compresses files before sending them across the internet and can scale on demand.

HP has also opened up free trials for its Cloud Compute and announced 50 per cent off on it.
