The OpenStack cloud computing project is moving forward with plans for a web-based computing platform called Austin built from its OpenStack and Object Storage platforms.
Backed in part by organisations such as NASA and Citrix, OpenStack looks to develop and deploy a fully functional cloud computing and management platform. The project combines code from Rackspace with NASA's Nebula project.
"We are much further along than we expected to be three months into this project, and the future is very promising," said OpenStack general manager Jim Curry.
"The community is rallying around the vision of an open source cloud alternative, which means service providers won't have to reinvent the wheel with proprietary cloud stacks.
"Cloud consumers will have the freedom to move their applications among clouds, whether an enterprise private cloud or simply to change service providers."
The company plans to decide on details for the next version of OpenStack next month at its Design Summit in San Antonio. The next release of OpenStack is set to arrive in January under the code name Bexar.
