As day two of OpenStack Tokyo begins, and I find myself surrounded by some of the brightest developers, engineers and architects in the world, I am reminded of a recent article suggesting that while OpenStack has momentum, it also requires a substantial amount of expertise.
This week I’m in Tokyo for my 12th OpenStack Summit.
Rackspace Cloud Files is a massively scalable cloud object storage system built using OpenStack Swift. As with other OpenStack projects, Swift is written in Python to take advantage of its rich technical features, fast delivery of capabilities and quick ramp-up time for developers to contribute.
As part of the OpenSource track at Grace Hopper, Anne Gentle will share findings and best practices while running a large documentation site for multiple open source projects within OpenStack as one of three “Lightning Talks” on Oct. 15 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.
In an open community, with great partners, it’s amazing how fast things get done.
Rackspace has publicly announced our affiliation with the OpenPOWER Foundation, and we are now an official member. OpenPOWER is a community dedicated to opening access to the lowest-level parts of servers: chips, buses, boards, firmware, and so forth. We anticipate that this movement will bring increased freedom and value to two other communities that we participate in: OpenStack and the Open Compute Project. We think that by working within this new community, Rackspace can deliver improved performance, value, and features for our customers.
In the technology industry, there is always disruption. That was one of the many messages OpenStack Foundation Executive Director Jonathan Bryce hammered home in front of a capacity crowd Monday during his keynote to kickoff OpenStack Summit Paris.
OSCON 2014 is upon is. We’ll have a number of Rackspace specialists on-hand throughout the event talking about all things open source. We’re pumped to head to Portland to highlight the projects we’ve contributed to and collaborate and innovate with the open source community.
Cloud Foundry Summit kicks off today in San Francisco. As an open source project, Cloud Foundry is growing rapidly and is getting more industry adoption. This summit is designed to bring together Cloud Foundry developers and operators for community interaction and discussions. And the summit’s schedule is packed with sessions showcasing business and technical topics.
Open source Content Management Systems (CMS) like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla! have now been around for a decade or so, doing their part to make the internet a more manageable place. At its core, a CMS structures the experience of developing, managing and consuming a website. Chances are good that a big chunk of the content you’ll read on the web today (including this post) is being delivered through an open source CMS. FedEx and The Washington Post are using Drupal. Coca-Cola France and Sony Music are using WordPress. Harvard and IHOP use Joomla!
