OpenStack has taken the world by storm, and it seems like everyone wants a piece of it. Since the OpenStack project deals primarily in source code, most people will need a distribution of OpenStack or will work with an integrator to get their private cloud up and running.
The problem is that there are a dozen or more distributions of OpenStack on the market and it’s easy to get confused. Should you go with a distribution from a traditional Linux vendor like Red Hat, Suse or Canonical? Is it better to choose a distribution from a hardware vendor like Dell, HP, IBM or Cisco? Or a hosting company like Rackspace? How about start-ups with OpenStack products like Nebula, Piston Cloud, Cloudscaling, Morphlabs or Mirantis?
This is your chance to hear from the distributors what their focus is, and why you might want to pick them. It is also a chance for OpenStack distributors to meet and discuss how we can get more out of our collaboration with the OpenStack project.
