Solinea Joins the OpenStack Marketplace
Atlanta, Georgia – May 12th, 2014 – Solinea, the OpenStack™ software and services company, today announced that it has joined the OpenStack Marketplace. The OpenStack Marketplace features products and services that meet specific technical requirements and provides transparency to help users make informed decisions.
Launching with five initial categories — Public Clouds, Distributions & Appliances, Training, Consulting & Systems Integrators, and Drivers — all products and services included must meet specific technical requirements and be transparent with product information, such as OpenStack versions and capabilities supported.
The OpenStack Marketplace allows users to benefit from the breadth of available choices in the ecosystem, while cutting through the noise that the successful project has generated by presenting transparent, objective product information. It is designed to help OpenStack users make informed decisions and encourage compatibility among the OpenStack ecosystem.
As the demand for OpenStack continues to grow, Solinea is staying ahead of the curve by architecting and deploying OpenStack cloud platforms that support Big Data Analytics and Mobile applications, as well as helping Enterprises and Service Providers adopt and operate these complex platforms. By joining the OpenStack Marketplace, Solinea will expand its reach in the global OpenStack ecosystem.
“As a long time contributor to the OpenStack project and a foundation sponsor, Solinea will continue to deliver software and services via this channel,” says Solinea CTO Ken Pepple. “By joining the OpenStack Marketplace, Solinea will continue to be optimally positioned as a leader in the OpenStack community.”
“OpenStack users are asking for objective tools to evaluate and compare product and service offerings in the OpenStack ecosystem,” said Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation. “As a participant in the OpenStack Marketplace in the Consultant and System Integrator category, Solinea is making their brand and capabilities visible to a diverse group of users ready to consume OpenStack.”
Solinea is at the OpenStack Summit this week in Atlanta. Attendees can learn more about Solinea’s service offerings by visiting booth 38E at the Georgia World Congress Center from May 12th – May 16th.
