OpenStack Cloud Goes Open for Vendor Certification

The effort led by Mirantis could reshape the way vendor certifications are done in the cloud. The way that IT certifications have long worked is that they have largely been vendor-specific. That’s something that is about to change with the open-source OpenStack cloud platform.

Rather than relying on vendor-specific certifications, a new effort being led by OpenStack vendor Mirantis is aiming to open-source certification for the cloud. The new effort is different from an existing effort known as Refstack.
