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

What kind of enterprise-grade public cloud momentum do you have?
The HP Public Cloud is about drinking our own champagne or eating our own dog food. When I go talk to a partner that is aspiring to be a service provider, I want them to know that I am asking them to do something that I do every single day for and with customers. 

In the context of public cloud, we made the bet on OpenStack. We are one of only two players in the marketplace that has actually put it up there with an enterprise-grade SLA [service level agreement] and that gives us enormous expertise as we roll out the work that we are doing with and for partners in a managed or a public cloud context.
