All of us here at Riak would like to congratulate CloudStack on their graduation from incubation status to a Top-Level Apache project. This signifies that the Project’s community and products have been well governed under the Apache Software Foundation’s meritocratic process and principles. CloudStack joined the Apache Incubator back in April 2012 and has experienced large successes since – including Datapipe’s decision to build their public cloud on CloudStack.
If you’re not familiar with CloudStack, it is used to deliver Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing in private-cloud, public, and hybrid cloud environments. It has been proven to be both stable and highly scalable, underpinning production clouds more than 30,000 physical nodes, in geo-distributed environments.
Riak has been partnered with CloudStack since September of last year, working together to build a combined platform for compute and storage resources. For more details about how Riak and CloudStack are working together, check out the full announcement.
The Apache Software Foundation is a non-profit that provides organizational, legal, and financial support for nearly 150 open source projects and initiatives. The pragmatic Apache License makes it easy for all users, commercial and individual, to deploy Apache products. Visit their site to learn more.
Congratulations again, CloudStack. We’re excited to see what comes next!
