"Over the course of the last year, I've seen OpenStack grow from
its NASA/Rackspace base, into becoming the most influential open

including Cisco, Dell, Brocade, Citrix and Canonical all align
behind the OpenStack vision.
"There hasn't been such a gathering of tech titans for an open
source effort since IBM launched the Eclipse Foundation. OpenStack
is a multi-vendor group and make no mistake about it, OpenStack is
the present and the future of the cloud."
