What were customers telling you about Helion Public Cloud?

It was sort of confusing to our customers because the demand [is in hybrid cloud]. They were telling us for the public cloud component of the portfolio they were really looking at AWS or Azure. In some regions they were looking at Baidu in China or a particular service provider in Spain or France as their public cloud option.

So we decided since we are investing in this hybrid space, we are building hybrid management tools. We are building HP Converged Infrastructure that is enabling these hybrid clouds. We are building a platform with Helion that allows people to build an app and have it run on any cloud environment.
