IBM OpenStack Cloud

Enterprise Cloud Powered by Open Source Code

Much like IBM's embrace of Linux over 10 years ago, IBM has thrown its full support behind OpenStack, as an open source project that enables enterprises and organizations to utilize private, hybrid, and public clouds, all through an open source philosophy with a large community behind it.

In a nutshell, OpenStack is an open source project that is designed to provide endusers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The project itself is managed through a non-profit corporate organization called the OpenStack Foundation, which was founded in 2012. More than 150 companies are officially onboard the effort, including IBM, Intel, AMD, Canonical, Red Hat, and many others.
