HP Cloud Approaching Feature Parity with AWS

HP Cloud joined the public cloud business much later than AWS, Rackspace and many of the smaller players, with a public beta in 2011. In some respects, the late arrival gave HP some advantage in seeing where competitors were thin. This is probably best evidenced by the robust Cloud Map support that carried over from HP private cloud solutions – the rest of the market relied on companies like Rightscale to provide similar functionality for AWS and Rackspace early on. This doesn’t mean HP was without some gaps.
