OpenStack, the open source software for building public and private clouds, recently turned two years old. In those first two years, OpenStack developed a global community of more than 190 companies and 3,300 individuals, including tech stalwarts such as Dell, HP, IBM, NetApp and Red Hat. With a community that rivals any other open source project in history, it’s amazing that OpenStack is only celebrating its second birthday. Joshua McKenty, one of the project’s founders at NASA and a driving force behind its continued success, will discuss how OpenStack got its start, the reasons behind all of the hype and what can be expected in the year to come. Joshua will also discuss how OpenStack has changed the landscape of cloud computing and how it will continue to transform the industry in years to come.
