"Believe it or not, OpenStack, the extremely popular open-source software cloud stack is just over six-months old. Someone new to cloud-computing might find that hard to believe since today, February 3rd, Cisco, the 800-pound gorilla of networking, and Canonical, parent of Ubuntu Linux, have both joined forces with OpenStack.

"Historically, Canonical has been allied with the other popular open-source cloud stack, Eucalyptus since it began working in clouds. Indeed, Canonical, in partnership with Dell, has just launched a private cloud server package using the Eucalyptus cloud platform.

"Be that as it may, Canonical's Cloud Solutions Lead, Nick Barcet, announced that Canonical was including the latest OpenStack software release, Bexar "in the repositories for Ubuntu 11.04 as well as officially joining the community."
