OpenStack Announces the Release of Cactus
OpenStack Enthusiast:

I am pleased to announce the third release from the OpenStack community,
Cactus. Much of the development and documentation efforts were spent
improving existing features, extending the API and adding support for
popular enterprise technologies to enable enterprises and service providers
to deploy OpenStack clouds with greater scale and performance. In just 10
weeks since the ?Bexar? release, more than 4,700 code commits and 40 new
features were added to the Cactus release from developers at organizations
including Canonical, Citrix, FathomDB, Grid Dynamics, NTT Group and

?OpenStack provides a solid software foundation for computing at scale and
we are very excited about the advancements we are working on with the
community to deliver next generation cloud networking,? said Lew Tucker,
Cisco CTO for Cloud Computing.

?As a strong supporter of OpenStack, we believe that cloud consumers should
have choice,? said Ewan Mellor, Director, OpenStack Engineering, Datacenter
and Cloud Division, Citrix and elected member of the OpenStack Project
Policy Board. ?We added support for VMware vSphere to allow enterprises and
services providers deploying OpenStack the flexibility to integrate with
legacy technologies and take control of their cloud strategy.?
