Mirantis, which has been expanding its set of training, support and development initiatives surrounding the OpenStack cloud computing platform, today announced the launch of Mirantis OpenStack Express 2.0. The offering now enables enterprises to deploy the most current OpenStack edition, OpenStack Icehouse as an enterprise-grade cloud service. The new release simplifies the setup process by providing a minimal Web form.
Also arriving now is Piston Cloud Computing's OpenStack distribution version 3.5. It features commercial add-ons including support for Intel Trusted Execution Technology and a rolling-upgrade plan that is similar to how Red hat regularly updates its OpenStack platform.
