AT&T (s T), which provides telephony services to consumers and enterprises, is looking to build a private cloud using the open source cloud platform known as OpenStack. It is a collection of technologies that are available for anyone to build private and public clouds.

Josh Kleinpeter, a software engineer with AT&T Interactive, a division of AT&T, mentioned AT&T’s plans during a panel discussion at the OpenStack Summit, currently under progress in Santa Clara, Calif.  Kleinpeter said that the Dallas-based phone company would use the private cloud for its own internal usage, primarily for its web-centric businesses.

    Goes with popular trend of using open source to developed “closed” systems. Not sure how good it will be for consumers…but I’m betting it will be profitable.
