OpenStack 101: What Is OpenStack?

1 comment

Data Center Knowledge has been covering OpenStack — an open source cloud operating system driven by a growing community — for more than two years. However, widespread understanding of OpenStack is lacking and potential cloud customers and users continue to raise questions, such as “What is OpenStack?” or “How is it used?” Rackspace, one of the original founders of the OpenStack project along with NASA, published this video that gives quick primer on OpenStack, what it is and who uses it. This 6-minute video, which is part of an ongoing series on OpenStack, introduces the cloud OS and dives into it from a high level to give you the basic understanding of this disruptive technology.

    The music is quite irritating. More information - less sound effects.
