Piston Cloud Computing, Inc.

Piston OpenStack (version 3.0)

Winner -- Cloud Solutions
What Makes This Product InnovativePiston OpenStack turnkey software automates the orchestration of an entire private cloud environment on x86 servers and requires little to no operations support. Going from bare-metal to a fully operational OpenStack-based private cloud less than a day, Piston requires no other software and does not require per-server installation. Delivering compute, storage, networking, and management through self-service interfaces and APIs, Piston OpenStack software includes a hyper-converged hardware architecture, a highly-secure stateless Micro-OS, and advanced cluster management. Piston OpenStack also provides elastic scaling of resources and fault tolerance out-of-the-box, keeping infrastructure running by automatically rebalancing resources and restarting tasks that have failed.
