From its inception as a collaborative mission in 2010 between NASA and Rackspace to build and manage massively scalable, feature rich clouds with Open Source software, the OpenStack Project has evolved to a community of almost 10,000 people across 87 countries. Today, over 200 vendors are actively participating across the OpenStack ecosystem.
This video provides an introduction to OpenStack and the problems it is solving in cloud computing. We discuss how OpenStack leverages block storage, what it is/isn't, how it works, and then we take a deeper look into the block storage service called Cinder, and describing how it differs from Swift object storage.
