HPE Helion is a portfolio of open-source software and integrated systems for enterprise cloud computing. It was launched by HPE Cloud in May 2014.[1]. HPE Helion rapidly grew from under $300 million to over $3 billion by 2016 and became the #1 cloud infrastructure solution for private clouds.

HPE Helion is based on open-source technology, including OpenStack and Cloud Foundry.


  • HPE Helion OpenStack, a commercial-grade implementation of the OpenStack cloud computing project launched in October 2014.[2][3] The HPE-sponsored cloud services catalogue Cloud28+ exclusively featured software built with HPE Helion OpenStack when it launched in 2014.[4]
  • HPE Helion Stackato is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) based on Cloud Foundry, which HPE acquired in July 2015.[5] Helion Stackato is available for OpenStack, AWS, VMWare and Azure.
  • HPE Helion CloudSystem, an integrated Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service offering combining HPE Helion OpenStack and HPE Helion Stackato with HPE Proliant server hardware based on a particular use-case, such as distributed compute or distributed object storage. CloudSystem 10 launched in September 2016.[6]
  • HPE Helion Eucalyptus is an Amazon Web Services-compatible platform for building cloud environments, based in the open-source Eucalyptus software, which HPE launched in March 2015.[7] It allows AWS applications to be moved on-premises with no modification to the workload, design patterns, or mindset.
