Hewlett-Packard has announced the availability of its latest Pavilion laptop with Google's Chrome OS as the PC maker tries to improve laptop sales by offering an alternative to the Windows OS.
HP will be a big player in the cloud, says Zorawar Biri Singh. HP has worked to unify its message around the HP Converged Cloud strategy, including reportedly naming the company's former networking CTO Saar Gillai to help lead its cloud segment with Singh. "I have a big part in that, Meg [Whitman] is directly on top of it, the board members are integrally involved in it," he says. "This is a top-down strategy that is pretty well understood."
Hewlett-Packard has launched a hosted offering called HP Service Anywhere, providing IT service management (ITSM) software over the Internet.
"We believe that SaaS as a delivery model and as a business model makes sense for many of our customers," said Lee Nackman, who is HP's vice president and general manager for the company's service and portfolio management software.
Hewlett-Packard unveiled a lightweight version of its Windows-based NAS (network-attached storage) array that's aimed at small and medium businesses.
Based on the same architecture as the HP X5000-series NAS box, the new X5000 devices for small businesses use 2.5-inch drives and can scale to 32.4TB. It runs the Windows Server OS.
Central force behind development of the OS that powered HP's TouchPad is going to Google, according to a report on The Verge.
Google seems to be cornering the market on open-source operating systems.
The Web giant will soon be welcoming into its fold the Hewlett-Packard team responsible for creating Enyo, the HTLM5-based application framework for WebOS that debuted on the failed TouchPad, according to a report on The Verge. However, what they will be doing at Google remains a mystery.

HP said in a statement that the combination will help the company's go-to-market strategy, branding, supply chain, and customer support.
