Ecosystem in the Cloud: Importance of OpenStack Ecosystem

Stephen_Spector

The OpenStack community spends a great deal of time focusing on the rapid growth of developers, features, and projects to demonstrate the success of the community. While this focus is understandable, I believe an even greater metric for measuring success is the size and breadth of the partner ecosystem.

Enterprise customers run a wide variety of computing solutions and adopting a new product requires that product to fit into their existing infrastructure. It is critical that existing vendors have links in place to connect to the new technology; otherwise, customers are less likely to adopt to the new technology.

In the video below, you will see a glimpse of the ecosystem at the recent OpenStack Summit Tokyo event and how it covers a broad range of customer needs ensuring the viability of OpenStack in an enterprise infrastructure.

The complete list of companies supporting the OpenStack project is available at https://www.openstack.org/foundation/companies/. This list demonstrates not only the acceptance of OpenStack as a key technology in cloud computing but also the many ways that customers can enhance their OpenStack deployment to meet their specific requirements.
