OpenStack is an open source project started in 2010 by Rackspace and NASA and, currently, is supported by more than 200 vendors, including Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Oracle, Red Hat, and Vmware. This involvement of several big IT players has led to a high level of trust on the robustness of the outcome, and has grabbed attention of several enterprises worldwide. However, the involvement of several players also raises management concerns. The very nature of the technology being an open one, it offers flexibility. It also enhances operational efficiency and reduces costs due to being on the cloud. This is likely to make OpenStack cloud technology an attractive offering.
