What is OpenStack?

A free and open-source software platform for cloud computing, deployed mostly to underpin private or public cloud IaaS. The software platform consists of interrelated components that control diverse, multi-vendor hardware pools of processing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. Users manage it via a web-based dashboard, command-line tools, or through a RESTful AP.
