Hewlett-Packard: HP has been making a lot of announcements recently about its Converged Cloud Strategy, which it says is a common platform across public and private clouds for users. Based on OpenStack code, the idea is to manage private clouds build on HP servers and have the ability to scale up into HP's recently launched public cloud, all with the same platform. The company has emphasized its support for multiple types of hypervisors on the private cloud side, but has not talked as much about enabling workloads across multiple public cloud providers though.
