HPL Singapore: Data Center Design for Cloud Computing Lab


Establish a research center of excellence in Singapore focused on enabling service providers to take full advantage of the power of the cloud.


  • Determine future cloud computing requirements and data center and application design principles
  • Promote commercialization of innovation to a rapidly growing regional customer base
  • Serve as a hub for Open Innovation in the region, fostering collaboration among HP’s customer and partner communities to bring a variety of innovations to market


In support of HP's vision of "Everything as a Service," the lab will contribute to the HP Labs project called "Cirious" that is developing foundational technologies needed to create an enterprise cloud software platform. Research areas in the lab include cloud-based and service-enabled applications; novel techniques for data center design and operations; and service-oriented IT.
