OpenStack Summit Showcases Innovations in the Open Cloud

The OpenStack community held its semi-annual Summit event in Boston from May 8-11, showcasing the latest innovations and directions in the open-source cloud platform. The event also marked the first OpenStack Forum, providing developers with an opportunity to discuss technical issues for upcoming releases.

Among the big highlights of the event was a keynote conversation with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden who praised OpenStack while warning of the ‘silent vulnerability’ present in non-open public cloud platforms.
