Invented by Rackspace and NASA®

OpenStack® is an open and scalable cloud operating system for building public and private clouds. It provides both large and small organizations an alternative to closed cloud environments, reducing the risk of lock-in associated with proprietary platforms. It also offers flexibility and choice through a highly engaged global community consisting of innovators, developers, software and hardware vendors, service providers, and more than 17,000 individuals and 430 companies including Rackspace®, Dell®, HP®, IBM®, and Red Hat® (as of 2014).

OpenStack is the strategic choice of many types of organizations—from service providers looking to offer cloud computing services on standard hardware, to companies looking to deploy private cloud, to large enterprises deploying a global cloud solution across multiple continents.

Whichever scenario is yours, we can provide the support you need. We helped build OpenStack and operate one of the world's largest OpenStack clouds, so we know how to support it, while offering you a broad portfolio of products and services for OpenStack cloud platforms.
