On April 12, IBM announced that we will be joining the OpenStack Foundation as a Platinum-level sponsor.
This is another key announcement for IBM and cloud computing, and builds upon the exciting announcements made at Pulse 2012.
The OpenStack Foundation is bringing together amazing talent to produce an ubiquitous Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds.
Open source code and standards address real world implementations. They optimize customer investment value. They ensure clients have a strong voice in how YOU establish and adopt cloud computing paradigms.
Everyone benefits and it improves the overall quality of what we all do.
We've seen this first-hand with Linux and Apache and any number of other projects and what the 160 companies and 3,000 developers of the OpenStack Foundation will do to change cloud computing is a chapter in history that has yet to be written, but those pages started on April 12th and they're going to continue into Impact and beyond.
A good place to start is to read the Wired Cloudline blog that Angel Diaz wrote. I also have details and resource links over on the Cloud & Service Management Blog, and feel free to post comments below.
Next stop, Las Vegas.
