After the overwhelming success of the OpenStack Summit in Atlanta, the schedule for the next OpenStack Summit in London is announced. So here’s a chance for those who couldn’t make it to Atlanta to join the event in London.
OpenStack Software brings with it a massively scalable cloud operating system. It is promoted by the OpenStack Foundation which has already attracted more than 9,500 individual members from 100 countries and 850 different organizations. OpenStack is used by organizations like AT&T, CERN, BestBuy and Comcast and is rapidly becoming the industry open source standard for public and private clouds. OpenStack is running on the world’s fastest supercomputer too!
