The Berlin Summit is the first OpenStack Summit to be held in Germany, a Top 10 country in terms of OpenStack community membership that ranks third by number of OpenStack User Survey respondents. The OpenStack ecosystem in Germany ranges from independent consultants like B1 Systems to major service providers such as Deutsche Telekom and large enterprise users like BMW and Volkswagen. Data sovereignty and regulations such as GDPR are driving growth in the German OpenStack public cloud market, where there are six public cloud availability zones operated by City Network, Deutsche Telekom, Enter.IT, teutoStack, Cloud&Heat and vScaler.
