OpenStack Ready To Wean

OpenStack, an open source platform for building clouds (both public and private), just turned the ripe young age of 1. The party, held in London, was a largely European affair; they may have even served gelato instead of ice cream.

OpenStack has a number of commercial supporters, chief among them Rackspace, Citrix and Dell. It's pretty cool to see a pure open source system gain this kind of traction against multibillion dollar corporations. Can't wait to see what OpenStack does once it learns how to actually walk and talk!
