OpenStack for the Open-Source Cloud

OpenStack is an open-source initiative to develop an open cloud infrastructure. First launched by NASA and Rackspace, OpenStack is designed to maximize interoperability and speed development. IBM has built a number of software products around OpenStack since making a formal commitment to the organization in 2013, including PowerVC*, PowerVM* NovaLink and its cloud orchestrator. Open development ensures interoperability and optimizes software quality, thereby fostering widespread adoption across a wide swath of industries.
