OpenStack is about having the freedom to exploit new technology and solutions quickly. You put that in practice by evolving and optimizing your cloud’s performance, features and cost as fast as the cooperative efforts of hundreds of vendors and thousands of contributors can make possible. But doing this with confidence means making decisions about, and investments in hardware, software and systems — and that means having meaningful, detailed and trustworthy information about OpenStack drivers: the logical glue connecting third-party products with OpenStack components.
