CRN Exclusive Interview: HP Enterprise Chief Veghte On The Trouble Ahead For Cisco's Public Cloud Initiative



What are the big differences between the Cisco Public Cloud and the HP Public Cloud?
 
I think one of the challenges and benefits that HP has is that Cisco is at the end of an era and we are at a new beginning. It is very challenging for a company to reinvent at a fundamentally different margin structure and to reinvent where it is not just about the switch and the router, but it is a broader solution. That is a very different model.

I think there are some wonderful things that they [Cisco] have done over the years. It has been a great run. For HP, for any number of reasons,  we started on that transformation two and a half  years ago and they have got a transformation they have to go through.
