The OpenStack Foundation starts to look at projects beyond OpenStackFrederic Lardinois / TechCrunch - 2 years ago
  • Over the last few years, we’ve seen the launch of a number of open source foundations like the Cloud Native Compute Foundation, the Cloud Foundry Foundation and others.
  • This move could send ripple through the open source ecosystem because if it’s successful, it’ll create another organization that will sit next to the Linux Foundation, the Apache Foundation and others, yet with the community support and experience that the OpenStack team has built.
  • Boris Renski, the co-founder and CMO of Mirantis, who made an early bet on OpenStack a few years ago, told me that if there’s a team that can pull this off, OpenStack CTO Mark Collier, executive director Jonathan Bryce and VP or marketing and community services Lauren Sell are the best people to do it.
