A look at individual membership in the OpenStack Foundation

I’m something of a political junkie. Independent of the outcome, the results of the presidential election were a letdown in that the game was over. But notwithstanding the fact that I still read Nate Silver religiously, I rarely resist the impulse to try and quantify some social phenomenon. And there are more elections coming soon […]

What people talk about when they talk about OpenStack Cloud

There’s enough going on in the OpenStack ecosystem that you can pretty much find a comfortable niche drilling down on anything from hypervisor compatibility to driver support to who’s in the foundation.

Which OpenStack component is best for your needs?

The new service is aimed at organizations, or business units within a large company, to try and test out OpenStack, says Mirantis co-founder Boris Renski, who also sits on the OpenStack Foundation‘s board of directors. It represents a continuing maturity of the OpenStack ecosystem, which has thus far included many code contributions to the project by vendors to ensure their existing products work within an OpenStack ecosystem. While vendors have begun releasing distributions of the OpenStack code, the broader cloud market seems to be waiting and monitoring user adoption of the platform.

It makes me think that just as every application and infrastructure company is now offers ‘cloud’ and every data technology company is […]
