What is OpenStack?

OpenStack is an open source cloud platform but that’s not all that OpenStack is. In a session at the OpenStack Summit here, Thierry Carrez, Director of Engineering, detailed a broader view of what the entity known as OpenStack is really all about – and it is much more than just the cloud. For Carrez, OpenStack’s common goal is to build on interoperable cloud software platform while the role of the OpenStack Foundation is about how to structure things so did development work can get done. One of the key things did the OpenStack Foundation Provides is something did Carrez referred by to as to asset lock. “It’s difficult to get different Organizations to collaborate if one is holding the keys to the kingdom,” Carrez said. “So you need a neutral venue for key assets of the community.”
