Blue Box Supports OpenStack Foundation as a Corporate Sponsor

Deploy OpenStack-Powered Private Clouds in Minutes Instead of Months

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2013) - Blue Box (www.bluebox.net), a leading managed cloud infrastructure provider, today announced it has joined the OpenStack Foundation as a corporate sponsor. Blue Box is fully committed to supporting the Foundation's mission of protecting, empowering and promoting OpenStack and believes wholeheartedly in the value of the community supported cloud.

Blue Box has built on-demand technology that enables customers to deploy hosted OpenStack private clouds in minutes instead of months. Blue Box's platform manages the underlying OpenStack orchestration, including monitoring and release management, allowing our customers to focus on using OpenStack instead of managing it. As customers' environments grow, additional resources can be provisioned into the cluster in minutes, all driven through the secure, web-based, OpenStack Dashboard. This feature delivers the elasticity of public cloud in a hosted private cloud environment.

The OpenStack Foundation promotes the development, distribution and adoption of the OpenStack cloud operating system. As the independent home for OpenStack, the Foundation has attracted more than 12,000 individual members from 130 countries and 850 different organizations. The organization serves developers, users, and the entire ecosystem by providing a set of shared resources to grow the footprint of public and private OpenStack clouds, enable technology vendors targeting the platform, and assist developers in producing the best cloud software in the industry.

"OpenStack has quickly become the cloud operating system, the Linux, of cloud platforms," said Jesse Proudman, founder and CEO of Blue Box. "As a corporate sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation, we will contribute over ten years of experience to help the Foundation further its mission. Our commitment to open technologies such as OpenStack will enable customers to benefit from the power of an incredible community."

"We are excited to welcome Blue Box to the OpenStack Foundation as a corporate sponsor and strong contributor to the open source project. The Blue Box team's experience in cloud hosting combined along with their commitment to open infrastructure will help expand the OpenStack footprint and benefit the community. We look forward to advancing the mission of OpenStack with the support of Blue Box," said Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director, OpenStack Foundation.
