What’s Next for OpenStack Open Source Cloud Computing

In a recent call, Jonathan LaCour and Simon Anderson, who are, respectively, CEO and VP of Software Development at DreamHost (Anderson is also a member of the OpenStack Foundation board of directors), emphasized that the last 12 months have witnessed widespread adoption of OpenStack. That was true not only in the United States but also Europe, where OpenStack seemed to enjoy less momentum about a year ago at this time.

Going forward, however, both executives envision a bit of a shift in the direction of OpenStack’s momentum, with feature and usability enhancement poised to be at the core of OpenStack development now that the adoption phase is largely complete. “In 2014, the theme really is about production hardening of OpenStack,” Anderson said, adding, “work needs to continue to be done to make [OpenStack] perform optimally.”
