Open Source at Hewlett Packard Enterprise – Community

Active. Involved. Engaged.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise actively participates in open source

Thousands of developers across the company are focused on open source projects, and HPE sponsors and supports the open source community in a number of ways, including: contributing code, sponsoring foundations and projects, providing active leadership, and participating in various committees. We are committed to the growth, maturity, and success of open source and contribute in a variety of ways. Whether contributing directly to projects, improving quality and reliability for our products, increasing the support for open source projects, or educating customers about the fear, uncertainty, and doubt spread by opponents of open source, HPE focuses on enabling interoperability and reliable consumption of open source in its products and across the open source ecosystem.

Here are a few highlights:

HPE has a rich history of open source involvement

Open source is an important part of what we do as a company. We're a solutions provider, active user of many projects, and a longstanding participant in communities all over the world. Starting with Linux in the late 1990s and moving up the stack, HPE has been a key contributor toward readying open source technologies.


Our breadth of experience in open source includes vast internal deployment, partnering across projects, embedded uses of technologies, contributing upstream to projects, offering customers consulting and support, and open sourcing some of our own technologies. We’ve also helped others establish governance models that enable effective collaboration.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise employs many community contributors and is actively hiring.
