OpenStack Summit, User Survey showcases new users, diverse industry adoption and growing popularity of OpenStack for multi-cloud environments and bare metal deployments with Kubernetes
BERLIN — November 13, 2018 — OpenStack Summit — New OpenStack users Metronom, Oerlikon ManMade Fibers, SBAB Bank, UK Science & Technology and Volkswagen Financial Services join veteran OpenStack users with growing deployments speaking at the Berlin Summit. Their presentations demonstrate how open infrastructure is reaching new markets, including 5G, edge computing, industrial internet of things (IIoT) and high performance computing (HPC).
The 2018 OpenStack User Survey Report, released today, documents more than 10 million computing cores running OpenStack in over 60 countries and a growing number of OpenStack bare metal clouds fueled by Kubernetes adoption. OpenStack is one of the three most active open source projects, alongside the Linux kernel and Chromium, with 70,000 commits in the last year, and an average of 182 changes per day during the OpenStack Rocky cycle specifically.
A packed schedule of new OpenStack users speaking at the Berlin Summit includes:
Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation, highlighted OpenStack’s growth and its role in addressing these emerging use cases during the Summit’s opening keynotes Tuesday morning.
“Open infrastructure couldn’t happen without a solid platform that can integrate the tools you need. OpenStack is that platform,” Bryce said. “Open infrastructure starts with OpenStack.”
