OpenStack is a collection of open source technologies delivering a massively scalable cloud operating system. Founded with source code from Rackspace and NASA, and with more than 40 corporate sponsors, OpenStack is currently developing two interrelated projects: OpenStack Compute and OpenStack Object Storage. OpenStack Compute is software to provision and manage large groups of virtual private servers, and OpenStack Object Storage is software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of servers to store terabytes or even petabytes of data.
