BEIJING, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — At this week’s OpenStack Summit in Atlanta, Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation, announced the launch of the OpenStack Marketplace. The OpenStack Marketplace aims to assist organizations wanting to use OpenStack software to easily find OpenStack products and services that best meet their business requirements.
“How to get started with OpenStack is one of the most common questions we receive,” said Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation. “The answer is that there are many ways to consume OpenStack, and the Marketplace is intended to show users the right paths to adoption for them, and community participants like Pactera are helping us make that happen.”
