The stated goal of the OpenStack Project is to produce the ubiquitous Open Source cloud computing platform that will meet the needs of public and private cloud providers, regardless of size, by being simple to implement and massively scalable. The project has already attracted a global community of innovators, developers, software and hardware vendors and service providers. With an open community of more than 8,900 individuals and over 190 companies participating, OpenStack is clearly the winning IaaS project with accelerating momentum.
