Here at Rackspace we view OpenStack as the operating system of the cloud. We believe that the openness and large community that has developed around OpenStack provides value for consumers by empowering them with flexibility and optimization options. Consumers can use OpenStack to power an on premise cloud or a cloud hosted by a provider.

Today is a huge day for the OpenStack community – Rackspace officially hands off the management of the project and all its assets to the independent OpenStack Foundation.

OpenStack is the platform upon which Rackspace has built its open cloud. The community-driven cloud operating system, which Rackspace co-founded, has sparked an open source cloud revolution. Enabling the community of hundreds of developers to contribute code and leverage the OpenStack cloud however they want has created a shift in how applications are developed. This blog series collects insight straight from key developers on the front lines about how they became involved in OpenStack and the open cloud, and what contributions they’ve made.
