HP departs the cloud competition
HP regarded cloud computing too much as a commodity infrastructure servoce, not enough as a dynamic and expanding set of services. A supplier needs to keep adding to the possibilities of what can be done in the cloud to attract the buying crowd, even if they're not interested in the latest and greatest. As with other new technology platforms, they'll gravitate to the provider who seems fully invested and most likely to offer the most out of the platform. HP never met that description.
