Cirious: Enterprise Cloud Software Platform
The Cirious vision is to lead HP in becoming the foremost Service Providers’ Service Provider, delivering a set of cloud capabilities that enable service providers to take full advantage of the power of the cloud. Our work enables service providers of all types to tap into foundational cloud capabilities – general purpose horizontal capabilities, as well as those tailored for specific industry verticals – that make it easy for them to develop, host and manage their services to deliver value from the cloud, and to integrate with an ecosystem of services from other providers.
Our security research agenda focuses on developing analytical and architectural computing models to support assured governance of information security management. In the context of a worsening threat environment, increased consumerization of IT, and the highly sought-after cloud computing paradigm, we are creating technology and methodologies that will improve situational awareness and help assure customers that security of their information assets is appropriately managed. Our approach is to introduce innovative analytics in the lifecycle of security management, to help analyze and drive appropriate desired security outcomes at the governance level; and to design the next generation of trusted system architectures that will help ensure that IT operations can achieve those outcomes reliably and with strong assurances.
Today, innovations in information technology are creating a new paradigm for human communication and collaboration on a global scale. The Internet is evolving into the cloud: the means through which everything will be delivered as a service—from computing power to business processes and personal interaction. The cloud is fundamentally changing the way we connect with each other and with information.
At HP Labs, our research is focused on delivering the secure application and computing end-state of “Everything-as-a-Service.” This research envisions billions of users securely accessing millions of services through thousands of service providers, over millions of servers that process exabytes of data, delivered securely through terabytes of network traffic. We’re creating the foundational technologies to expand the use and relevance of cloud computing in the enterprise. We’re working on an enterprise cloud platform, from computing resources to human skills. And we’re working on the security analytics that will automate enterprise-grade security and address one of the biggest obstacles in the broad adoption of the cloud in the enterprise.
