OpenStack Turns 4 – It’s Time to Celebrate the Community!

OpenStack celebrates its 4th birthday July 19, and we’re celebrating with the entire OpenStack community during July!  User maturity, software maturity and a focus on cloud software operations are rapidly emerging for OpenStack and none of it would be possible without the quickly growing OpenStack community. There are now more than 70 global user groups and 17,000 community members across 139 countries, spanning more than 370 organizations. This calls for a big toast to the OpenStack community members and our users.
