Cloud Open Stack – Enterprise Solution

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

What do you think of Cloud Stack? Here is what The official Cloud Stack Website is saying about cloud stack:

What the software does: The goal of OpenStack is to allow any organization to create and offer cloud computing capabilities using open source software running on standard hardware. OpenStack Compute is software for automatically creating and managing large groups of virtual private servers. OpenStack Storage is software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of commodity servers to store terabytes or even petabytes of data.

Why open matters: All of the code for OpenStack is freely available under the Apache 2.0 license. Anyone can run it, build on it, or submit changes back to the project. We strongly believe that an open development model is the only way to foster badly-needed cloud standards, remove the fear of proprietary lock-in for cloud customers, and create a large ecosystem that spans cloud providers.

Who it’s for: Institutions and service providers with physical hardware that they’d like to use for large-scale cloud deployments. (Additionally, companies who have specific requirements that prevent them from running in a public cloud.)

How it’s being used today: Organizations like Rackspace Hosting and NASA are using OpenStack technologies to manage tens of thousands of compute instances and petabytes of storage.

Timeline: Openstack was announced July 19th, 2010. While many components of OpenStack have been used in production for years, we are in the very early stages of our efforts to offer these technologies broadly as open source software. Early code is now available on LaunchPad, with an inital release for OpenStack Storage expected in mid-September and an initial release for OpenStack Compute expected in mid-October.

Open Stack Participants

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

Open Stack Participants:

An expanding list of companies and organizations involved in the OpenStack ecosystem.

  • “Choice is the big advantage here, as OpenStack enables integration with best of breed infrastructure network, storage & compute services.”

    Steve Mullaney, Nicira Networks

  • “OpenStack will accelerate Open Source momentum for Cloud Computing and be used around the world.”

    Yoichi Kihara, NTT DATA

  • “If cloud computing is the future, then understanding how to make that future open is one of the great technology challenges of our day. Rackspace and NASA are taking an amazing step towards my vision of an open cloud future.”

    Tim O’Reilly,

  • “We believe that an open Cloud is the future of cloud computing. The internet would not be what it is today, had it not been built on open and interoperable standards.”

    Phil Worms, iomart Group

  • “OpenStack will seed many clouds—public and private—powered by this single, open industry standard.”

    Justin Santa Barbara, FathomDB

  • “We see significant interest among enterprises and service providers for scalable, open and proven platforms to deploy private and public clouds. OpenStack hits the mark.”

    Bill Karpovich, Zenoss

  • “The Openstack initiative is open source at its best… It will re-define cloud computing.”

    Adam Jacob, Opscode
