OpenStack Overview

OpenStack is a large open source software project that provides a platform for creating, operating, and consuming public and private clouds. OpenStack abstracts key elements of a datacenter - compute, storage, and networking resources, into pools of resource accessible by a unified API. As a OpenStack cloud tenant or a cloud application, you can use these APIs to provision these resources within the limits set by the administrator.

Cisco’s technical and operational involvement with OpenStack is through various OpenStack projects.
