Rackspace, Dell push OpenStack cloud OS

“Rackspace will help enterprises build private clouds using the
OpenStack cloud operating system, the company announced Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Dell is seeking enterprises and service providers for
proof-of-concept OpenStack trials with its Dell PowerEdge C family
of servers.

“”Last year was a year of big companies backing OpenStack, and
this is the year of deployments and production, where we have
multiple enterprises and service providers in tests,” says Mark
Collier, vice president of marketing and business development for
the new Rackspace division called Cloud Builders. “For instance,
we’re helping the Canadian Government deploy right now. In eight
months we’ve seen OpenStack go from support to active
engagements.”
