VIDEO: Nebula CEO on the Importance of Open Source Contribution to OpenStack

Nebula is one of the leading contributors to the open source OpenStack cloud project. It's a role and a responsibility they take very seriously.

The need to contribute back to the core OpenStack project is important in Nebula CEO Chris Kemp's view. He noted that if companies that are developing products or services based on OpenStack contribute to the platform, there will be a better reflection of the needs and requirements of users in the technology.

Kemp also warned that when companies don't contribute back, that hurts the OpenStack project.

"To the extent that people hold back, we'll see entire use-cases and classes of applications not represented in the core, which will skew the trajectory of the overall open source project," Kemp said.
