Talking to OpenStack Chief Architect – Rick Clark

On Wednesday, near the end of day two of the OpenStack design summit, I caught up with Rick Clark, chief architect of the OpenStack platform.  I wanted to get Rick’s thought’s on how the four-month old open source cloud computing project and the summit were going.

Here’s what he had to say:

Some of the ground Rick covers:

  • The goal of the summit as well as the goal of the next two releases.
  • How ready the various code bases are e.g. object storage and compute
  • The diversity of the attendees
  • How many of the attendees are open source vets vs newbies
  • Where the next summit will be

Pau for now…
