OpenStack: open source is "synonymous" with cloud computing

Computer Weekly - The OpenStack Foundation this week comes into being as a new, formally established, completely independent body.

Forged with a remit to promote the development, distribution and adoption of the OpenStack cloud software, the foundation has attracted more than 5,600 individual members, secured more than US$10 million in funding and says that it is ready to fulfil the OpenStack mission of becoming the planet's "ubiquitous" cloud computing platform.

Executive director of the OpenStack Foundation Jonathan Bryce has said that this is a "defining moment" for the open cloud movement.
