OpenStack Delivers First Release of Cloud Computing Tech

“After only three short months of life, the OpenStack open
source cloud computing initiative is out with its first public
release of production quality code.

“The first OpenStack release is codenamed Austin and includes
both storage and cloud compute fabric technologies that can be used
by enterprises to deliver cloud services. Originally an effort
kick-started by NASA and Rackspace, OpenStack is now benefiting
from the support and contributions of more than 35 technology
vendors.

“”We now have our first software release — where we saw a lot
of interest initially in getting people involved. This is the first
output of that effort,” Mark Collier, vice president of community
and business development, at OpenStack told InternetNews.com. “So
for us it’s about going from the promise of OpenStack, to the first
chance for enterprises and service providers to kick the tires on
the code and start planning for public and private cloud
deployments.”

“The OpenStack project was first announced in July as an effort
to provide new open source based cloud computing technologies.”
