HP exec leaks cloud plans; VMware in, Microsoft out?

JoMaitland Jo Maitland Profile: JoMaitland

HP will most likely base its cloud Platform as a Service offering on VMware’s CloudFoundry, according to plans leaked by an HP exec. Surprisingly, there was no mention of support for Microsoft Azure, possibly because Microsoft is still working out the spec for reselling this software.

The Register reported that Scott McClellan, the chief technologist and interim vice president of engineering for HP’s new cloud services business spilled the plans on his public LinkedIn profile. [Doh!]

According to The Reg story, HP will reveal the details of its cloud strategy at VMware’s conference, VMWorld in August.
