Beginning as an Open Source project in 2010, OpenStack®  ( has seen meteoric growth in the last few years. With literally thousands of corporate and individual contributors, it is now one of the leading platforms for both private and public clouds. Responding to customer demand, we’ve built a powerful and flexible enterprise private cloud architecture based on OpenStack.Our enterprise private cloud architecture addresses two key use cases for OpenStack: scaling OpenStack up to Webscale volumes and leveraging OpenStack in complex global multi-datacenter, hybrid cloud environments.
