OpenStack Summit review

Jason Brooks from the RDO team wrote up his experiences from the OpenStack Summit and the RDO launch.

What impressed me more than the growth of the project, however, was the way that OpenStack embodies one of things I love most about open source, namely, its knack for helping people to peel back or eliminate barriers to innovation.

We got a lot of attention during the launch. Here is a selection of some of the things which were written about us.

It's happening again. Red Hat, which for years has dominated both the development and monetization of Linux, has turned its code contributing hand to OpenStack, the popular open-source cloud computing project. While Red Hat initially fought OpenStack, today it has become OpenStack's biggest contributor.
