"Putting the PaaS in OpenStack"

By: Diane Mueller (Red Hat), Krishna Raman (OpenShift)

RedHat has created its own OpenStack distribution that is now in preview and still a bit rough around the edges, but promises to include what is needed to deploy & evaluate a truly complete Open Cloud environment. In addition, Red Hat wants there to be a widely used open-source community developed PaaS model for the cloud which includes being open to participation by a community of peers. To really create a open cloud environment and to make it useful, you need to complete the stack with an PaaS. Just getting a cloud environment up and running is no longer enough. The challenge that OpenStack faces is how to get people, applications and services working on OpenStack out of the box.
