A few months back, Cisco announced our official support for the OpenStack open-source project. Led by Cisco’s office of the Cloud CTO (Lew Tucker), Cisco continues to expand our engagement in this community.
Our initial engagement was a “Network as a Service” (NaaS) submission, looking at ways to create a logical abstraction to automate pools (or containers) of network resources and allow developers to create systems that meet their application needs.
Last week we co-sponsored the OpenStack Design Conference in Santa Clara (all presentations). We also created this resource page to highlight configurations for developers or systems integrators looking to setup OpenStack on the Cisco UCS platform. Recaps of the Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 events and activities.
During the event, Lew Tucker spoke about our commitment to the program and our plan for engaging with the community.
In the coming months, you can expect to see more details about Cisco’s involvement with the OpenStack project and community. We welcome your input into the process and would like to hear if you have interest in OpenStack within your organization.
