HP’s New Cloud Engineering SVP Bolsters Open Stack Efforts
HP’s recent hiring of Mark Interrante as SVP, engineering for HP Cloud marks a significant step in the company’s cloud computing efforts and overarching Helion strategy. Interrante came to HP from Rackspace, where he was SVP Products and Engineering, led the company’s product organization and was responsible for dedicated hosting solutions, internal customer support applications, Private Cloud, data science and network architecture.
Just as importantly for HP, Interrante was one of those (along with other Rackspace and NASA personnel) responsible for the founding and early development of OpenStack. That invention resulted in the design, development, and operation of what Rackspace calls the world’s largest open cloud, and helped drive OpenStack’s popularity as an open source foundation for cloud infrastructures.
