Implementing a continuous integration or continuous delivery workflow can help all aspects of software development, testing, and deployment, not only in a private on-premise system but across a multi-cloud infrastructure. In fact, multi-cloud DevOps is what HPE has strived to bring to the table with its recent releases of the Helion Cloud System 10, Helion Stackato 4.0, and Helion Cloud Suite, all unveiled at the 2016 HPE Discover event in June.
In this episode of The New Stack Makers embedded below, we explore the ways that HPE aims to bring better workflow automation to developers, how it has contributed and collaborated with the open source community, and how HPE has put the power of Cloud Foundry to use across its enterprise product platform. The New Stack founder Alex Williams spoke with HPE vice president of products and services Omri Gazitt, and HP Helion SVP of engineering Mark Interrante.
As enterprises continue to shift toward a multi-cloud infrastructure, HPE has created a variety of solutions to help developers meet their goals regardless of their hardware or where their stack is deployed. Gazitt offered a quick recap of the ways in which Helion Cloud Suite and Stackato had evolved.
“Helion Cloud Suite brings the best of IT operations management portability together. Cloud System 10 takes Helion Cloud Suite and makes it work anywhere. Stackato 4.0 is not your father’s Stackato. We replumbed it so it’s sitting on top of latest and greatest of Cloud Foundry, and is fully Cloud Foundry certified.”
Gazitt noted that HPE utilized Hashicorp’s Terraform to help it containerize Cloud Foundry. The goal was to create an automated system which broke down the latest Cloud Foundry release into containers in an automated fashion. While working on the project, HPE found it was also able to contribute back to the open-source community by working with Terraform to evolve its OpenStack support.
“One of our core beliefs is that multi-vendor open source ecosystems win out over closed ones over time,” Gazitt implored.
