Akamai joins OpenStack community
Posted on 8-Oct-2011 08:19. | Tags Filed under: News.



kamai Technologies, Inc. has announced the company has joined the OpenStack community, with plans to provide advice and guidance on best practices for platform design and architecture to help overcome the availability, delivery, performance, and scale challenges inherently faced by globally distributed cloud infrastructures and applications.

"Acceleration, optimization, and control of distributed cloud computing environments are core to our business at Akamai. We're bringing that experience to the OpenStack community as they create a robust foundation for cloud computing adoption," said Andy Champagne, vice president, Products and Technology, Akamai. "Our goal with participation in the community is to help position OpenStack to address the control, scale and performance challenges that come with delivering globally distributed enterprise class applications."

OpenStack is a community of more than 100 companies, including Rackspace, NASA, HP, Cisco, Dell, and Citrix, coming together to create a massively scalable cloud operating system. Formed in mid-2010, the community now exceeds 1,500 registered individuals and Akamai is pleased to support the project in an advisory role.

"Having a market leader such as Akamai join the OpenStack community is the latest example of the power an open platform approach to cloud computing can generate," said Mark Collier, VP, Rackspace Cloud Builders. "Akamai will bring valuable input and advice regarding the challenges of globally distributed content and applications."
