The Public Cloud Reaches Critical Mass for the Enterprise at HP Discover Frankfurt

At next week's HP Discover in Frankfurt Germany, there will be a tremendous amount of activity and dialog surrounding the enterprise cloud.  While individual developers, and many small and medium size businesses have embraced the public cloud for years, enterprises have been more cautious.  Concerns about security, reliability, migration and vendor lock-in have impacted adoption.  The HP Cloud Services team will be illustrating exactly how the HP Cloud is addressing these challenges so that organizations of any size can be confident in trusting their production workloads to the public cloud.
