The Open Infrastructures Movement
With over 100,000 members in 187 countries, the Open Infrastructure Foundation connects people and companies from around the world who are committed to open source. The Foundation's goal is to help the community create new open source communities and develop open infrastructure such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, CI/CD, container infrastructure, edge computing and cloud computing.
Open Infrastructure Foundation appoints its first Board of Directors
Last week, the Open Infrastructure Foundation announced that its board of directors has expanded to 27 people, including engineers from Facebook, Ant Group and Red Hat.
"It's exciting to see the Open Infrastructure movement growing at such a rapid pace, evidenced by the fact that we have more Platinum members than ever before, more Open Infrastructure community members, with infrastructure experts running some of the largest infrastructures in the world," said Mark Collier, COO of the Open Infrastructure Foundation. 1
Cloud&Heat becomes silver member
Since we have been working with OpenStack, the open source standard for cloud infrastructures, since 2012, it was only a matter of time to become a member of the Open Infrastructure Foundation. Over the last few years, we have built up a great deal of OpenStack expertise as well as a deep knowledge of lifecycle management, operation and monitoring, maintenance and optimisation. We have been offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) since 2012. Recently, we have expanded our portfolio to include Platform as a Service (PaaS) with Managed Kubernetes based on Vanilla OpenStack with additional security enhancements and look forward to further contributions to the community.
