Impacting the Open Source Movement
EMC & Open Source
EMC and the EMC Federation are committed to being a major participant in the Open Source community. Not only are we investing in making contributions in open source code, we are also actively participating or sponsoring major projects.
EMC and the EMC Federation established Cloud Foundry as a full Linux Foundation project, moving the control of project to the global community.
EMC has embraced Open stack and is now an active contribution. When aggregated, the EMC Federation is a top 10 contributor of new source code to the project. Similarly, the Federation is driving significant contributions in the Hadoop and big data communities.
Most recently, EMC became a platinum sponsor of OPNFV, a Linux Foundation project create to help communications service providers embrace open technologies as they evolve their service delivery platforms to cloud architectures.
EMC is committed to opening core technologies where an open source model will best accelerate the technology.
EMC & OpenStack
Making OpenStack a Priority
EMC is extremely focused on becoming a major participant in the OpenStack community. From active leadership in code contributions to product development and partnerships.
EMC's entire storage platform portfolio now has a roadmap for the delivery of 'plugins' which will allow full integration into an OpenStack environment. EMC is also now actively contributing both code and features. EMC's most recently contributed Consistency Group features into Cinder. Over time, it is EMC's goal to make OpenStack a full featured control plane for advanced data and storage services.
EMC and the EMC Federation are committed to working with the wider community and have established direct relationships with leading vendors. With partnerships including Redhat, Mirantis and others, EMC is integrating our plugins directly into these leading vendor's distributions.
Lastly, EMC and the EMC Federation are also committed to building product with OpenStack integrated in it. Later in 2015, EMC will be launch OpenStack based platforms for direct customer consumption.
