OpenStack Foundation Set to Advance the State of the Open Cloud

The OpenStack Foundation is almost officially alive. The open source group that will have oversight over the OpenStack cloud platform project was first announced nearly a year ago and is now ready to launch.

The Board of the new Foundation had its first full meeting at the CloudOpen Summit in San Diego last week. In an interview with Datamation, Jonathan Bryce one of the founders of the OpenStack effort at Rackspace detailed the road ahead.

"We're arriving at the point where we're about to launch the Foundation and it's going to take OpenStack off into the future," Bryce said.

Currently Bryce's official title is Acting Secretary of the interim board of the OpenStack Foundation. When the Foundation is officially launched, Bryce will become the Executive Director.
