CRN Exclusive: HP CTO Martin Fink On HP's Helion Global Open Network Vs. Cisco Global Intercloud


What are the customer/partner economics of HP Helion vs. Cisco InterCloud?

In our case, what happens is enterprises will be able to have access to that open hybrid IT environment that prevents that vendor lock-in and be able to have workload portability between their on-premises work, their off-premises work and get access to all of the different environments around the world..

As the Helion Network expands and we have multiple providers and multiple partners and systems integrators and people who specialize in certain verticals, those different providers will be able to provide an enhanced set of services that the enterprises will be able to leverage because it is all part of the Helion Network.
