It is truly amazing that it has just been one year since we at Rackspace, along with NASA and 25 other organizations, officially announced the launch of OpenStack. From day one we have been shocked by the interest, engagement and momentum of the community launched to build the de facto open standard cloud operating system. Turns out the world was craving a truly open project devoted to cloud software, and they quickly got behind OpenStack.
The stats are just amazing:
-Developer summits: #1 – 100 attendees; #2 – 250 attendees; #3 – 500 attendees
-Number of contributors who have signed CLA: 217
-Number of developer community members: 1,200
-Number of downloads from Launchpad alone: 35,000
