The OpenStack community has been talking about the Atlanta Summit for months. Now that it’s here, take a quick look at how users prepared and what the community is most looking forward to this week.


The OpenStack Summit officially kicked off in Atlanta today, but the community has been abuzz for weeks. Here are some of the most notable Summit-related quotes and Tweets from the weeks leading up the Summit.

"OpenStack needs more real-world use cases from non-aligned customers to show that its technology is ready for primetime. Bryce said the focus this year will be on users, not developers, and that’s a step in the right direction." –Barb Darrow, GigaOm

"Should we measure OpenStack by the revenues the development companies (and individuals) are generating, or only focus on the companies using OpenStack behind the scenes to run an element of their business?" –Brian Gracely, IT Knowledge Exchange


Join the conversation by tweeting with the #OpenStack hashtag. We’ll be featuring user conversations throughout the week, so tweet, blog, or [email us](mailto:[email protected]) your thoughts.
