Citrix today announced that it has become a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation. The OpenStack Foundation serves more than 22,000 individual members from 155 countries around the world and supports developers, users and the entire ecosystem by providing a set of shared resources to grow the footprint of public and private clouds.
Citrix said in a release it continues to support other industry standardization and open-source initiatives including the Apache Software Foundation and Linux Foundation and will continue to invest in cloud infrastructure platforms including Apache CloudStack and CloudPlatform.
“Diversity and choice are two powerful drivers behind both the success of OpenStack and the growing list of companies who have chosen OpenStack as their infrastructure platform,” said Johnathan Bryce, the foundation’s executive director.
The 11th release of the software, code-named Liberty, is scheduled for release later this month prior to the next Design Summit in Vancouver taking place from May 18-22.
