Piston OpenStack™ is a software product that uses advanced systems intelligence to orchestrate an entire private cloud environment using commodity hardware.
Created by several of the founders of OpenStack®, Piston continues to drive the OpenStack project forward via code contributions, thought leadership through the OpenStack Project Policy Board, and in support of the OpenStack developer community. We willingly share our expertise, leadership, guidance, vision and code with the community and the other companies working to make OpenStack the industry standard in cloud. Piston’s goal is to further the natural evolution of the OpenStack project while focusing on meeting the needs of the enterprise.
