HPE CloudSystem Enterprise version 10 is the last release of CloudSystem. The phase-down of support for CloudSystem is underway, with end-of-maintenance support occurring in May 2020, and the end of remedial support at the end of May 2021. Refer to the following business white paper, Support policy for HPE Helion CloudSystem software, for additional information. 

Envisioning the way forward, HPE and Micro Focus partnered as old friends and we have good news for all Cloud System Enterprise customers!cloud buildings.jpegWhen HPE CloudSystem was introduced, the world was looking at private cloud as the only and preferred choice, but now multi-cloud is the norm. In keeping with this new normal, Micro Focus offers Hybrid Cloud Management suite (HCM) as a powerful replacement for current and future enterprise needs. HCM is a DevOps driven multi-cloud management software with best-in-class orchestration and analytics built-in. 

Migration specs

  • Promotional Pricing: We offer a discount program for customers who own CloudSystem Enterprise to move to Micro Focus HCM V2 Premium. There's a mapping formula to convert the hardware-/server-based licensing to OSI units. HCM is much more than just the CSA and OO products that shipped with CSE!
  • Data migration services: Moving to HCM involves a data migration of application and database to the new environment/setup. The move will be to the HCM products as standalone installation (CSA+OO), and our professional services team has the necessary recipes to achieve this.
  • Direct Micro Focus support: Cloud System support was through HPE. You now get direct Micro Focus support!
