Debian 7.1 arrives in the HP Public Cloud

HP is pleased to announce the availability of 64-bit Debian 7.1 (codename 'Wheezy')  in the HP Public Cloud. We're excited to provide to our users the first update of the latest stable Debian distribution. This image is built and supported by HP and is a standard Debian server installation with some slight modifications to the cloud-init package to accommodate the HP Cloud OpenStack environment.

You can find the image in the HP Cloud through the web console @ http://console.hpcloud.com in the HP provided public section of the image catalog or by using your favorite OpenStack/Nova CLI. See http://docs.hpcloud.com/cli for HP provided and supported CLIs for different Operating Systems.

In addition, HP Cloud also offers and supports the 64-bit server image of the previous Debian 6.0.3 release which is available using the Nova CLI or the OpenStack API directly.
