“If you look at all the companies involved in the OpenStack community, those are some big technology players and they’re all going to be looking for OpenStack talent.” – Tony Campbell

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is OpenStack, an open source platform-as-a-service (PaaS) initiative for creating and managing large groups of virtual private servers in a cloud computing environment. OpenStack was set up to compete with Amazon and is often referred to as the “Linux of the cloud.”   In September, the OpenStack foundation formally took over development and approved VMware as a member.  That was when the you-know-what hit the fan and bloggers began speculating what VMware was up to and whether their admittance to the party spelled doom for the OpenStack initiative.
