enStratus Expands Capabilities for OpenStack

New capabilities for OpenStack Object Storage & Compute released on one-year anniversary of open source cloud computing project

enStratus on Wednesday announced expanded capabilities for OpenStack components including OpenStack Object Storage and OpenStack Compute.

enStratus CTO George Reese noted that "we already have customers using Swift as a storage platform for their cloud infrastructure. Providing governance and automation capabilities is an important aspect for OpenStack's enterprise and service provider clients."

OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds.

enStratus has embedded Object Storage for on-premise deployments against cloud platforms that don't have an object storage option like vCloud, Cloud.com and Nimbula. OpenStack Object Storage, code-named Swift, is a highly available, distributed, eventually consistent object/blob store.

enStratus also announced native support for Compute. OpenStack Compute is the software that controls one's Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.
