Open Source, openstack

OpenStack One of 10 Most Important Open Source Projects in 2011

Joe “Zonker” Brockmeier recently posted his list of the top 10 most important open source projects of 2011, and OpenStack was in there.

I agree that OpenStack is one of the most compelling open source projects this year. I think back to the Cactus release earlier in the year and really am amazed at the amount of change in many of the core OpenStack projects — Nova in particular. We’ve had an explosion of contribution from a ton of individuals working at a who’s who list of technology companies, and I expect to see that passion and enthusiasm for OpenStack only continue to grow through 2012. Lots to look forward to. 🙂

Here’s to an innovative 2012 and continued collaboration in the open source community on this terrific set of cloud infrastructure projects.
