Cybercom sponsored OpenStack Nordic Days –event in Stockholm on 22nd September. This was the very first time for Nordic event and gathered together over 300 participants. Well done!

During the day we heard awesome keynotes, and to mention few, Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of OpenStack Foundation told, that 65% of world’s OpenStack installations are running critical production workloads (according to their user survey). We also learned that CERN runs about 6700 hypervisors in their OpenStack deployments. This is huge! Thierry Carrez, Director of Engineering, OpenStack Foundation presented a question: What is OpenStack? And gave us the answer that caught my attention “Culture > Technology”. Wow, so true, don’t you think? OpenStack is the world’s biggest open source community and they = people are developing OpenStack. And we’re proud to be part of this. Thanks to event organizers, we had a great day in Stockholm!
