OpenStack Overview

OpenStack is an open-source, standard platform for cloud computing. It can manage VMs, volumes, and virtual networks in both public and private cloud scenarios with multiple components, for example, Nova, Cinder, Neutron, Keystone, and Glance.

Currently, OpenStack is the second largest open-source foundation behind Linux. It has 440 partners, including major IT service vendors and mainstream open-source ecosystems and over 2000 developers.

OpenStack provides an easy-to-use, scalable, standard, and uniform cloud computing platform suitable for multiple cloud computing environments.

OpenStack supports infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solutions based on its complementary services, with each service providing APIs easy to integrate.
