Wow, what a crazy month it has been! We’re really excited by all the buzz and activity that’s going on in OpenStack–in IRC (freenode.net #openstack) and on the mailing lists (launchpad.net/openstack), as well as on Twitter (@openstack) and in the media. But hype time is over and it’s time for us to begin delivering on the promises of OpenStack.
OpenStack Compute and Object Storage already have a number of important features in the code base today including:
managing virtual machines
network configuration for those VMs
a fully distributed, replicated storage system
storing, retrieving, and replicating objects and files up to 5GB in size
In addition, we have already released interfaces for controlling an OpenStack environment via a web control panel, iPad, iPhone or Android device.
