This week marks a milestone in the history of open source. Only a few years back, OpenStack was nothing but a twinkle in a few people's eyes. Today, it counts with over 100 companies running OpenStack-based clouds and offering OpenStack-based solutions. Fortune 500 companies are building OpenStack clouds, hedging their IT infrastructure on OpenStack and a whole ecosystem of products and services have emerged.

Join John Engates, Rackspace CTO, and Mark Interrante, Vice President of Product for a discussion on the realities of OpenStack-based products and what this means for Rackspace and the industry.
