Cloudwatt based on OpenStack service for Mac users

Olga Weis

OpenStack is a free, open-source software platform for cloud computing for private and public clouds that consists of interrelated components controlling various multi-vendor hardware pools of processing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. Users can manage the platform via a web based dashboard or command line tools, or RESTful services. Many cloud providers rely on OpenStack because it offers openness and interoperability through the open APIs, as well as active communication with over 3000 daily contributors and its innovative ecosystem.

Multiple cloud services are based on OpenStack technology and offer its innovative and reliable mechanisms to their clients. One of them is Cloudwatt – a public cloud that offers infrastructure as a service (IaaS) as well as concrete solutions to cases like Big Data and one-click application deployment.
