Fri, 22/07/2011

ForLinux are proud to be involved in the first EMEA OpenStack event along with about 350 others. Not only were a substantial portion of the audience very familiar with OpenStack, many had already deployed it. I met individuals and companies from around Europe who have already deployed OpenStack clouds. Free T-shirts, pens, mouse mats and a glowing ball added to the occasion.

The discussion about OpenStack distributions from companies such as Citrix, Canonical and StackOps indicates how companies are investing in this technology as the right cloud solution for their customers. Citrix highlighted how their acquisition of was a doubling their commitment to the project. All of this activity bodes well for the creation of a broad range of OpenStack solutions for customers.

In addition to the open panel discussions, there was an overview of Cloud security, the architecture behind Open Stack and the Swift object store. The event demonstrates that OpenStack is here to stay and will become the open standard for Cloud architectures which ForLinux will be supporting.
