Openstack Foundation Launches

CIO: The Openstack Foundation is now officially a standalone non-profit organization and will oversee the management of the Openstack open source cloud computing software. Previously, cloud hosting vendor Rackspace had been handling the project. Foundation executive director Jonathan Bryce said that moving management to an independent organization will help preserve vendor neutrality and ensure that “OpenStack will be around for years to come.”

A board of 24 members–8 from the Platinum sponsors, 8 from the Gold sponsors, and 8 from individual members–will run the Openstack Foundation. Sponsoring companies with board seats include AT&T, Canonical, HP, IBM, Nebula, Rackspace, Red Hat, SUSE, Cisco, Dell, NetApp, Piston Cloud Computing, Yahoo, Intel, NEC and VMware.
