Cloud 28+ catalogue off to a strong start

Following it’s launch at the end of last year Cloud 28+, the online catalogue of cloud services for European businesses, has already been hailed a huge success.

The platform enables European enterprises to easily search for cloud services to meet their specific business requirements and its technology framework is based on Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s HPE Helion OpenStack, ensuring portability of cloud services and eliminating vendor lock-in for the end customer.

Cloud28+ customers can also sort for a specific data center location and provider by which a cloud service is operated, thus ensuring compliance with local laws and business requirements. Cloud 28+ is a community of commercial and public sector organizations aimed at expanding cloud service adoption across the European region.


A centralized enterprise app store, the Cloud28+ catalogue already features 800 cloud services from 200 Cloud28+ members across Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service offerings. Partners include BT, Intel, Telefonica and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

We recently spoke to Xavier Poisson, EMEA Vice President of Hybrid IT at Hewlett Packard Enterprise to get the lowdown on what the catalogue offers European business customers.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel will host the fifth Cloud28+ Acceleration in Amsterdam on Thursday, 19 May, 2016.
