Introducing OpenStack — an open source cloud platform


Today Rackspace and NASA announced OpenStack, an open source cloud platform that they are collaborating on and building a community around.  Last week the inaugural OpenStack design summit was held here in Austin with 20 companies from around the world, including Dell, participating.

During one of the breaks I grabbed sometime with Rackspace’s cloud president, Lew Moorman to learn more about the effort and get his thoughts:

Some of the topics Lew tackles:

  • What is OpenStack (an opensource set of technologies for building clouds…)
  • Why Rackspace decided to opensource their code .
  • How Rackspace got hooked up with NASA and what each brings to the party.
  • Taking Nebula’s core foundation and adding some elements from Rackspace’s side in order to put together a release candidate that should be available to the community this Fall.

Pau for now…
