OpenStack Continues to Push Cloud Integration Vision

OpenStack continues to move forward, even as new technologies like containers enter the cloud virtualization landscape. At the OpenStack Silicon Valley event on Aug. 26, OpenStack supporters discussed why the open-source cloud platform is thriving and detailed new efforts to keep momentum moving forward.

Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation, announced that the OpenStack Foundation has now officially received tax-exempt, nonprofit status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). While OpenStack as a technology is now five years old, the OpenStack Foundation itself was officially launched in 2012.
