If you’re curious how a Windows developer would go about starting an open source project, you aren’t alone. Our most recent Office Hours Hangout guest, Don Schecnk, found himself ready to start an open source project, but didn’t know where to start.
Carl Thompson was shocked to learn he’d been named this year’s Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year— understandable, given that he’d never submitted an application for the prestigious award.
Rackspace has publicly announced our affiliation with the OpenPOWER Foundation, and we are now an official member. OpenPOWER is a community dedicated to opening access to the lowest-level parts of servers: chips, buses, boards, firmware, and so forth. We anticipate that this movement will bring increased freedom and value to two other communities that we participate in: OpenStack and the Open Compute Project. We think that by working within this new community, Rackspace can deliver improved performance, value, and features for our customers.
OpenStack Summit Paris is just about over. It was a great week. In case you missed it, here’s a roundup of our coverage from the Paris Summit. We’ll see you in Vancouver in May.
As more organisations adopt the cloud, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that many will need to use more than one cloud, and in many cases several clouds, to serve the range of workloads they will run.
OpenStack Summit Paris marks the first Summit in Europe, and thousands of attendees – many of them Summit first timers – gathered to talk all things OpenStack.
In the technology industry, there is always disruption. That was one of the many messages OpenStack Foundation Executive Director Jonathan Bryce hammered home in front of a capacity crowd Monday during his keynote to kickoff OpenStack Summit Paris.
OpenStack is growing. Just looking around at the OpenStack Summit Paris, it’s exciting to see how far it’s come in just four years. It’s being used in production at many large enterprises and was recently named the most important open source project in the cloud. It was great to see Jim Zemlin from the Linux Foundation on the Summit keynote stage this morning. The size of the Summit and excitement around OpenStack are reminiscent of Linux conferences in the early 2000s – it’s a project that’s still developing, but on track to dominate.

At Rackspace, we believe that open source communities enable innovation and collaboration. That is why we founded OpenStack four years back and why we actively engage in the Open Compute Project as well. OnMetal is built on OpenStack software and Open Compute hardware. Listen to what the OnMetal team has to say about why we chose such a design.
