VMware Doubles Down on OpenStack Havana Cloud

Some members of the technology community see VMware as a key competitor and rival to the open-source OpenStack cloud platform. The truth of the matter is somewhat different, as VMware is a major contributor to OpenStack and has taken multiple steps forward to help advance the upcoming Havana release.

Dan Wendlandt, director of product management for OpenStack at VMware, is a well-known figure in the OpenStack world. Wendlandt helped create the OpenStack Networking project, once known as Quantum, now renamed Neutron.
