MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 6 — Executives of Mirantis, a leader in engineering services for OpenStack Cloud, will describe how its customers are deploying OpenStack technology to attendees of Cloud Connect 2012, February 13-16 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Alex Freedland, co-founder and chairman, Adrian Ionel, CEO, and Boris Renski, co-founder and CMO will share case studies of OpenStack Cloud implementation. Mirantis has recently completed several projects to help companies solve a range of IT challenges, using OpenStack in areas that range from storage to HPC.
OpenStack software is an open source platform for building private and public infrastructure clouds. More than 145 leading companies participate in the OpenStack project, including AMD, Cisco, Citrix, Dell, HP, Intel, and Microsoft. It originally started with NASA and Rackspace.
Mirantis has been an active member of the OpenStack community since its inception and has contributed multiple code commits to the OpenStack Compute and Identity projects. Mirantis is also one of the organizers of the Bay Area's OpenStack user group, hosting the quarterly community events in Silicon Valley. This OpenStack community grew from 100 to more than 900 members in less than nine months in 2011. Mirantis is also focused on expanding the OpenStack community in Russia because of the growing interest there among developers.
Also at the conference, Mirantis will introduce a new training program on OpenStack technology. The much-needed program will expand the pool of skilled engineering talent and expertise in OpenStack software throughout the industry.
