Oracle Joins OpenStack Foundation, Announces Integration Plans

From patent srikes that the company has fired at Google and other companies, to shutting down many of the open source projects that it acquired with Sun Microsystems, we've watched Oracle do many anti-open things in recent years. However, it may come as a surprise that Oracle has announced that it is now a corporate sponsor of The OpenStack Foundation. The company has said that it plans to integrate parts of the OpenStack  platform into its own products, and that it recognizes that customers want flexibility and lack of lock-in when managing cloud deployments.

Actually, it should be noted that Oracle has been steadily pursuing API integration with OpenStack, as I noted in this post. Now, though, the company has announced that it is planning to integrate OpenStack cloud management components into Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, Oracle Infrastructure as a Service, Oracle's ZS3 Series, Axiom storage systems and StorageTek tape systems. That's a big potential boost for OpenStack.
