OpenStack Gains Traction
The winter continues to fuel major growth for the OpenStack initiative. In November, NTT hosts the first Japan user group and 150 attendees show up. Then, in January, Wikimedia says it's running OpenStack for a test/dev environment. And on Jan. 15, service provider Internap launches a storage service using OpenStack. At the six-month mark, OpenStack now boasts 40 member companies and partners and has received contributions from more than 60 developers.
