Piston Cloud Joins OpenStack Foundation

Piston Staff  /  Apr 12, 2012  / 

Piston Cloud was founded with a simple goal: make OpenStack easy, secure and open for the enterprise. A year later, we are more committed than ever to that goal, and are proud to announce we have pledged our support to become official sponsors of the emerging OpenStack® Foundation. Members of the Piston Cloud team have been involved in the OpenStack project since its inception, and we are looking forward to working with our fellow foundation members to drive adoption and development, ultimately contributing to the long-term viability of the OpenStack project.

The OpenStack Foundation will be an independent body providing shared resources to promote OpenStack software and empower the community around it, including users, developers, and the entire ecosystem. Piston Cloud is among 19 companies involved in the foundation creation, committed to “The OpenStack Way,” an open development process that is driven by a technical meritocracy, supported by significant investments in community building, and focused on driving adoption.

The process for finalizing the foundation documents will be open to all, with the initial committed companies providing legal support to aid in the drafting process. For more information please visit the OpenStack Foundation Governance Wiki.
