NASA's contribution to OpenStack came in the form of the core compute infrastructure that is a critical part of the overall platform. This week, Jeff Barr of Amazon's Web Services, which is competitive with OpenStack, posted a blog with the title, "NASA Saves Nearly $1M Per Year By Using AWS."
The Amazon post was based on a blog post from NASA CIO Linda Cureton. Cureton notes that NASA is using Amazon Web Services for enterprise infrastructure.
