Yahoo announced as a founding member of the OpenStack Million Core Club
At the OpenInfra Live: Keynotes opening session on Wednesday, November 17, Yahoo was among five organizations announced as the founding members of the OpenStack million core club. The team at Yahoo operates some of the largest on-premise environments in the world and depends on open infrastructure to power its data centers. Yahoo has long been a strong advocate of open source projects. Hadoop, Apache Trafficserver, Athenz, etc started as internal Yahoo tools which were open sourced and given to the world. In terms of OpenStack, they have contributed tens of thousands of lines of code, as well as given feedback in technical sessions, presentations sharing data, etc. In general, they share openly and eagerly with the community.
