OpenStack is democratizing the data center. Up until now, only very large Internet players like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple could afford custom-built data centers that gave them a competitive edge. With OpenStack, the Compute, Network, and Storage pillars of today’s data center are being commoditized, allowing companies of all sizes to build or buy the infrastructure they need.
As a free and open-source cloud computing software platform, OpenStack enables data center infrastructure as a service (IaaS). With competition driving prices down, startups and entrenched players are in a race to bring the power of the cloud to the Enterprise.
Who will guarantee interoperability among vendors? How will business models evolve for Open Source private clouds? Will service providers continue to grab the lion’s share of the revenues?
