Please Welcome AT&T to the OpenStack Community!

We are very excited to welcome AT&T to the OpenStack community today!

John Donovan, AT&T’s Chief Technology Officer made the announcement at their annual AT&T developer’s summit in Las Vegas today:

“We also announced today that AT&T has become the first U.S. telecom services provider to join the OpenStack initiative, a community of more than 140 technology companies worldwide. We’ve been participating in OpenStack for more than a year and have already contributed a blueprint for a potential new function within OpenStack, focused on transactional task management.

We’re housing our OpenStack capabilities on dedicated infrastructure in three AT&T data centers today, with locations in Dallas, San Diego and Secaucus, New Jersey. We plan to more than double the number of our centers with open-source capabilities in 2012.”
