HP Opens Cloud Lab in Singapore

The facility will focus on a range of projects that aim to re-examine data center

Hewlett-Packard on February 24 opened an advanced collaborative research lab in Singapore to support its growing cloud business – what it calls its “Everything as a Service” vision.

“Our new lab in Singapore is a key component of the transformation strategy put in motion less than three years ago to accelerate our pace of technology transfer and bring a variety of advancements to market,” said Prith Banerjee, senior vice president, Research, and director, HP Labs, in a press release. “HP Labs Singapore aligns very closely with HP’s strategic growth areas and significantly expands the resources we bring to bear on our customers’ biggest opportunities and challenges.”

Officially known as HP Labs Singapore, the facility will focus on a range of projects that aim to re-examine data center and application design principles in order to explore how future cloud computing needs will be met, said the release.

HP plans for the lab to work closely with customers, partners, HP business divisions and schools to generate advancements that will drive research for cloud development. And HP expects its customers to capitalize on this shift to a service-based infrastructure model using developments from HP Labs Singapore.

The new lab will collaborate with other key cloud initiatives already underway at other HP Labs sites, including the Service Automation and Integration Lab (SAIL) in Palo Alto, CA., and the Automated Infrastructure Lab (AIL) in Bristol, UK.

HP’s intention is that, together, the three labs will work on its vision for creating an enterprise cloud software platform – dubbed Cirious. As part of that project, HP has partnered with:

– Intel, Yahoo! and the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore to create a global, multi-data center, open source test bed for the advancement of cloud computing research and education. IDA houses one of nine test bed locations worldwide.

– SingTel – to form Singapore’s largest commercial grid services platform. It’s called Alatum, and it offers a variety of computing power, storage and software applications on a pay-per-use, on-demand and online basis.

HP Labs Singapore is the company’s third research facility in the Asia/Pacific region and its seventh worldwide

Of course, HP isn’t the only one building data centers and research facilities around the world dedicated to cloud computing and development. It’s good to see that healthy competition in this area is further driving hunger and interest for cloud computing – and that, in turn, lifts all the cloud service provider boats in this giant industry.
