Talking to NASA CTO about OpenStack Cloud Platform


One of the featured speakers during the kick off of the OpenStack design summit yesterday was NASA CTO of IT, Chris Kemp.   OpenStack is an open source cloud platform and the compute side of the project is based on code from NASA’s Nebula cloud.

I got some time with Chris and learned about NASA’s involvement in the project:

Some of the ground Chris covers:

  • Nebula and the cloud computing platform code base
  • NASA’s huge data needs and what they do with the data
  • Serendipity: NASA’s cloud engine + Rackspace’s file system engine
  • How NASA is working with the project: a two-way street

Pau for now…
