OpenStack board elects Tencent as Gold Member

OpenStack board elects Tencent as Gold Member”

"OpenStack [has become] more shrink-wrapped and risk is reduced for enterprise use", the research firm said. The results of the OpenStack User Survey found that users from 48 percent of deployments interact with more than one cloud. Shenzhen-based Tencent said it used OpenStack since 2013 as the foundation of its TStack private cloud platform.

451 Research is a preeminent information technology research and advisory company. The platform was once limited to mostly development/testing and proof-of-concept deployments but there are now mission-critical workloads on OpenStack across almost all enterprise verticals and regions. It aims to give anyone interesting in investigating use of OpenStack services a way to do so at no cost. While not the primary driver, a contributing factor is the Chinese government's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology advocating for OpenStack.

The OpenStack Foundation also announced initiatives to support its integration strategy including OpenLab, the Public Cloud Passport Program and the Financial Services Team.

The OpenStack Foundation opened the OpenStack Summit asking, "Can open source software innovate?" - the answer being a resounding yes.

"OpenStack has solidified its position as the leading open source option for building private and public cloud environments but it is no longer the shiny new toy in the industry - that torch has been passed to containers and microservices".

These connectors do exist, but the problem is majority are in the possession of the users that created them.

"As open source leaders, we'll fail our user base if we deliver innovation without integration, meaning the operational tools and knowledge to put it all into production", said Jonathan Bryce "By working together across projects, we can invest in closing this gap and ensuring that infrastructure is not only open but also consumable by anyone in the world". "We need to support each other and make sure open technologies work well together in order to build user and ecosystem value around these shared assets".

The Foundation is launching several initiatives to help with this.

The Infrastructure Integration will also create verified use case templates that describe common deployments of OpenStack alongside other tools.

When the Foundation heard its members asking about edge computing, it started work on features to make the platform good at it, some of which have now arrived.

Also at the summit, the organisation has formally launched an OpenLab "to enable the testing, reporting, and development of tools and applications for hybrid and multi-cloud environments". Intel Corp. and Huawei Technologies Ltd. are both working alongside the foundation to further this effort.

To date, OpenStack revenue has been overwhelmingly from service providers offering multi-tenant IaaS, but 451 Research Market Monitor finds that OpenStack growth is now shifting towards the private cloud space faster than previously expected.
