Hewlett-Packard is the latest Silicon Valley heavyweight to join in on the OpenStack open-source cloud platform.

HP already has plenty of its own cloud solutions for IT departments, ranging in scale as well as private and public. Nevertheless, because OpenStack is a collaborative effort and free for all under the Apache 2.0 license, lots of other tech companies have found some benefit in supporting the project.

HP's vice president of Cloud Services, Emil Sayegh, wrote on the company's blog:

HP recognizes that open and interoperable cloud infrastructure and services are critical in delivering the next generation of cloud-based services to developers, businesses and consumers. It is our belief that close collaboration with developer communities combined with HP’s global portfolio are cornerstones to delivering the right, seamless and secure experiences for our customers.

Sayegh continued that HP will maintain an "active role" within the OpenStack community as some of HP's cloud development teams are already actively participating on OpenStack’s Launchpad and IRC channel.

OpenStack is a joint venture founded by RackSpace and NASA designed to serve as a massively scalable cloud operating system. Other IT giants that have acknowledged support for OpenStack include Dell, Cisco, Intel and Citrix.
