The OpenStack Design Summit & Conference, which brought together developers, customers and more to hash out the next OpenStack release, Folsom, was a whirlwind, and in a pair of blog posts I’ll try to break down exactly what happened when OpenStack stormed San Francisco in mid-April. Yesterday, I showcased the Design Summit, today I’ll zero in on the Conference.

The Space Cowboys from the Rackspace Startup Program were in Silicon Valley for the last couple of weeks visiting startups and helping spread the word on the next generation Rackspace Cloud.
Days 2 and 3 of the OpenStack Design Summit & Conference kicked off on a rabid pace. These are typically the days that the deep-dive technical sessions really ramp up and it gets, well, really geeky.
Here’s one final thought on last week’s OpenStack Design Summit & Conference in San Francisco:  As we interviewed more than a dozen OpenStack users and developers, listened to the sessions and watched the keynotes, the one comment we kept hearing over and over is “it’s the community.”  Most cited the community of more than 3,000 people and more than 150 companies as one of the main reasons they chose to get involved and plan to stay involved with OpenStack.  It’s also clear that the community is rapidly expanding around the globe.
Some of the biggest names in tech are backing OpenStack. Last week at the OpenStack Design Summit & Conference in San Francisco, top cloud experts from Red Hat, IBM and HP joined Rackspace for a panel to discuss how and why they’re using OpenStack.
There is a lot of buzz coming out of last week’s OpenStack Design Summit & Conference. One event that helped build more understanding about the current state and evolution of OpenStack was Analyst Day. Held at Rackspace’s San Francisco office, the day brought together analysts from several major firms including IDC, Gartner and Forrester to get a deeper look at OpenStack through a free flow of demos and discussion.
OpenStack is ready. And the era of open cloud is here. Rackspace is using it to power its public cloud. Customers and partners are screaming for it. And more than 1,000 attendees are expected to descend upon San Francisco this week to learn more about it at the OpenStack Design Summit & Conference.
From the launch of the Rackspace Cloud powered by OpenStack to day one of the OpenStack Design Summit & Conference, Rackspace on Monday took the City by the Bay by storm and made San Francisco the world’s open cloud headquarters.
There is only one word to describe Day 1 of the OpenStack Folsom Design Summit: “wow!”
