HP is ready to roll out the public beta of its cloud services.

As noted back in April, HP plans to launch public betas of its HP Cloud Compute, HP Cloud Object Storage, and HP Cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN) May 10.

Officially, HP's services don't compete with Amazon Web Services, but most cloud observers know better.

The HP services are pay as you go and developers can test the company's cloud.

It's likely that HP will roll out a series of partners building on the company's cloud. Earlier on Wednesday, Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens noted that HP's public cloud beta is a coming out party of sorts for the OpenStack initiative. Stevens said HP's cloud services on OpenStack validate the open source effort.

Should you test out HP's public cloud we'd love to hear about your experiences.
