Meet Superuser

The OpenStack Foundation created the Superuser publication to facilitate knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving among individuals who are running OpenStack clouds and the cloud-based infrastructure, across all industries. Topics range from how-tos and case studies to broader issues like organizational culture and vendor management.

Over the years, we’ve met countless individuals who are not only helping their organizations adopt OpenStack software, but also transforming the way they do business from the ground up. We called the publication Superuser as a nod to these change agents, who are making their organizations competitive in the current software-defined economy.

This publication chronicles the work of superusers and their many accomplishments individually and organizationally. Our goal is to amplify their impact.

We aim to give you the tools and knowledge you need to become a superuser — or stay on top of things if you already are one.

How can you get involved?

Please get in touch with story ideas, article contributions or feedback by emailing our editor, Nicole Martinelli editor AT

To keep up with the news,  download the Superuser app for iOS or Android.

Other important policies

Superuser does not sell advertising nor do we accept sponsorships of any kind. We also do not participate in any kind of link-building relationships.
Our goal is to build a credible, independent publication. Superuser does not coordinate its coverage with our member companies, members of the Board, or anyone else.
Superuser works hard to ensure that any author we publish clearly states any potential conflicts of interest, such as investments in companies mentioned, and/or friendly or familial relationships that might influence editorial. If you are aware of any such conflict that has not been disclosed, please alert us immediately.
Our editors and contributors are variously members of the OpenStack Foundation, members of the community and professional journalists.
