OpenStack Grizzly Set to be the Foundation for Red Hat Enterprise Cloud Release

While Red Hat may not have been an early adopter of the open source OpenStack cloud platform when it was first launched by Rackspace and NASA in 2010, Red Hat did publicly jump into the OpenStack community in 2012 and has since become one of its leading contributors.

Mark McLoughlin, Technical Lead for Red Hat's OpenStack team, told ServerWatch that a key highlight of the OpenStack Grizzly release that is out today, is the simple fact that it continues to advance code stability and maturity.

"Like clockwork, every 6 months delivers the predictable, incremental improvement the project needs for continued success," McLoughlin said. "From our deep experience with open source, we know this is the mark of a healthy project that's going to be around for the long-term."
