The Benefits of Building an Open Infrastructure


The OpenStack Infrastructure team manages all the services that developers in the OpenStack project interface with on a day-to-day basis, including the code review and continuous integration system, Wiki, IRC bots, and mailing lists.

We are also an open source project in our own right. All of the code and configurations used in our infrastructure is available in a series of public code repositories and all of our documentation is publicly available. This is in contrast to many other open source projects that either rely upon proprietary resources provided by a code hosting service, such as SourceForge or GitHub, or have a company with an IT staff that manages an infrastructure, like the Ubuntu project.
