"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."
