The HPE Helion Public Cloud is one of several OpenStack public clouds that
generously donate compute, network, and storage resources to power the
OpenStack Developer Infrastructure. As you may know, HPE is sunsetting the
HPE Helion Public Cloud on January 31st 2016[1]. Use of HPE Helion Public
Cloud resources by the OpenStack Infrastructure system will be discontinued
this Friday, January 29th. This will have an impact on the number of
compute nodes available to run gate tests and as such developers may
experience longer wait times.

Efforts are underway to launch an OpenStack cloud managed by the OpenStack
infrastructure team with hardware generously donated by Hewlett-Packard
Enterprise. Among other outcomes, the intention is for this private cloud
to provide a similar level of capacity for use by the infrastructure system
in lieu of the HPE Helion Public Cloud. The infrastructure team is holding
an in-person sprint to focus on this initiative next month in Fort Collins
CO February 22nd - 25th[2][3]. For more information about the "infra-cloud"
project, please see

If your organization is interested in donating public cloud resources,
please see

Last, but not least, a huge thank you to HPE for their support and
continued commitment to the OpenStack developer infrastructure project.
