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.
