Open Stack - the open source, open standards cloud

OpenStack allows any organization to create and offer cloud computing capabilities using open source software running on standard hardware. OpenStack Compute is software for automatically creating and managing large groups of virtual private servers. OpenStack Storage is software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of commodity servers to store terabytes or even petabytes of data.

Come learn how this killer new project changes the competitive landscape.

A big thanks to the following sponsors for making this event happen:

    Hi guys,
    It was great to attend the openstack talk and discussion a couple of weeks ago.
    I've started a blog on addressing the current developments related to cloud computing technologies. Its at vinayvenkat.wordpress.com

    Your comments will be greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for posts related to openstack!
    Thanks!

    I was a little disappointed we didn't get more technical information on OpenStack. It would have been nice to get more of an overview of the capabilities, architectures, and APIs for Swift and Compute.

    We got the T-shirts, we ate the pizza, we drank the kool-aid. It was a great community building talk. It was a bit lite on technical details. For those who want to dig a bit deeper:
    The compute part of OpenStack is a NASA project called Nova. The web site for it is:
    http://nova.openstack.org­
    The storage part of OpenStack is a Rackable project called Swift. The web site for it is:
    http://swift.openstack.org­
    Neither of these sites are obvious from the OpenStack home page or wiki.
