OpenStack: Building portability, security, and trust in the cloud

OpenStack, the fast-growing IaaS platform is taking root across the industry, promising an open cloud computing platform that enables portability, security and trust in the cloud. OpenStack distributions continue to come to market and customers are testing the platform as an adjunct to public clouds or their own private infrastructure. How many customers are using OpenStack in production today, and is the platform living up to its promise of openness and security, beyond what’s available from other cloud providers?
