Event Details

OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud operating system for public and private clouds. OpenStack currently consists of three core projects: OpenStack Compute (code-named Nova), a scalable compute provisioning engine, OpenStack Object Storage (code-named Swift), a fully distributed object store, and OpenStack Image Service (code-named Glance), an image registry and delivery service.

Launched one year ago with source code contributions from Rackspace and NASA, the community has quickly grown to hundreds of contributing developers and more than 100 participating organizations. OpenStack was named the fastest growing open source cloud project in 2010 and a ‘cool vendor’ by Gartner in 2011.
