Hardware Certification Program

Customers want to be sure that if they deploy HPE Helion OpenStack® on their hardware of choice, it will run and be fully supported by the vendor and HPE. The HPE Helion Ready certification process ensures that this is the case.

HPE Helion OpenStack appeals to enterprises and service providers looking to obtain real value from hybrid IT. The HPE Helion Ready program gives you the opportunity to certify once, and then sell your hardware to a broad customer base across all cloud deployment models, including public, private, and managed.
