OpenStack Celebrates It’s 1 Year Anniversary

Filed in Product & Development by Lew Moorman | July 21, 2011 4:50 pm

[1]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[2]. From day one[3] 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
