OpenStack, a leading open-source project, empowers enterprises to manage private clouds akin to AWS, fostering data control and security. Its latest release, OpenStack Caracal, highlights its commitment to hosting AI and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.

As enterprises increasingly invest in AI, OpenStack emerges as a pivotal solution. Mark Collier, CEO of the OpenInfra Foundation, highlights a forthcoming trillion-dollar investment wave in data center infrastructure, emphasizing the need for a robust software layer like OpenStack.

Amid shifts in the tech landscape, OpenStack stands out as a comprehensive alternative to VMware, attracting users dissatisfied with recent changes. Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenInfra Foundation, notes a surge in interest as companies reassess their infrastructure needs.

OpenStack’s growth extends globally, with notable traction in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe. The addition of Okestro, a South Korean cloud provider, as a Platinum Member underscores its appeal across diverse markets.
