Cloud Computing: OpenStack Update

An OpenStack iPad app based on the Rackspace Cloud Pro iPad app currently in the App Store

OpenStack, the new open source kid on the cloud block, has spawned an adjacent front-end project, an OpenStack iPad app based on the Rackspace Cloud Pro iPad app currently in the App Store. The OpenStack iPad app uses OpenStack's compute and storage APIs to manage compute and storage resources, and offers a few features outside the scope of the APIs like viewing RSS system status feeds, pinging compute nodes from several locations around the world, e-mailing files from OpenStack Object Storage and integration with Chef, the open source systems integration framework, and the Opscode Platform, a new feature made possible by the developers at Opscode. Meanwhile, OpenStack is claiming 34 community members and that "hundreds of people have made over a thousand contributions."
