Cloud computing's big debt to NASA

IBM is betting big on OpenStack, deeply rooted in the NASA's ingenuity

Computerworld, 3/8/13

IBM's announcement this week that it would base its cloud services on OpenStack may help establish the open source platform as the standard in enterprises.

IBM along with Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Cisco, Red Hat, and Rackspace, which helped develop the platform, are supporting OpenStack.

This means that just about every Fortune 1000 company will be using vendors that are building products and services based on the OpenStack-based cloud platform. Considering that OpenStack is less than 3 years old, this may be remarkable.
