OpenStack Summit: What Will be the LAMP of the Cloud?

AUSTIN – In the early days of the Internet, it was the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack that enabled the rapid growth of the Web. For the new era of the cloud, what will be the LAMP stack of the cloud? That’s a question asked by Mark Collier, Chief Operating Officer of the OpenStack Foundation at the OpenStack Summit here.

Collier noted that growing demand for infrastructure is driving a need for a new stack. While OpenStack is part of the solution, it’s not necessarily the entire solution. Collier added that there are other tools and communities that OpenStack needs to embrace.
