OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. These are all managed using a dashboard or a command line interface that gives administrators control, while allowing their users to provision resources through a web-based interface. OpenStack is used in a wide variety of industries and use cases, and is supported by more than

400 leading IT hardware and software companies, who have contributed to development of the OpenStack project.
