In the new age of computing which is witnessing the integration of social media, mobile, cloud, and big data, it is cloud computing that is wielding the most compelling force to change the design of IT architectures and delivery models. The industry has reached a stage where IT decision makers are not questioning “if” they should begin their cloud journey, but rather “how” they can make cloud work. Since most enterprises operate or plan to operate in a hybrid cloud environment, the path has been paved for the emergence of OpenStack, an open and flexible cloud computing platform for both public and private clouds.

While OpenStack has made great headway since NASA and Rackspace launched it in 2010, enterprises that are adopting OpenStack do face some roadblocks. Calsoft is an early adopter of cloud technology and promotes OpenStack’s mission to develop cutting-edge open source software solutions for product companies on private and public clouds. Our dedicated OpenStack center of excellence assists product companies in adopting and unleashing the power of the cloud. Calsoft has been actively contributing to the OpenStack community since its inception in 2010.
