OpenStack Foundation to Rebrand as Open Infrastructure Foundation in 2021

OpenStack Foundation has announced it will be changing its corporate name to Open Infrastructure Foundation (OIF) starting in 2021, reflecting the organization's broader commitment and valuable expertise in driving innovations in open source.

OIF's goal is to build an open infrastructure for the next decade by solving infrastructure issues raised by continuing demands in new markets.

The demands are being driven by modern use cases such as containers, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, 5G, network function virtualization (NFV), and edge computing.

OIF continues to build a community to write open source software that addresses these infrastructure markets.

OIF wants to ensure that the solutions to these demands are developed in the open, using the same transparent and proven approach to open source.

"Foundation members like InMotion Hosting play a vital role in making community-driven software development work," said Mark Collier, COO of Open Infrastructure Foundation. "The engagement and active participation of hosted private cloud providers are critical in bringing the voice of bare metal providers into the development roadmap. The support of InMotion Hosting as a Silver Founding member is a powerful confirmation of the vision and direction of our community, and we're looking forward to their participation in building the next ten years of infrastructure software."

Open source is part of the fabric of InMotion Hosting's own core philosophy and strategy. IMH has been serving small and medium-sized businesses for nearly 20 years by providing the tools and services that enable companies to compete at a higher level.

InMotion Hosting's latest open source product, Flex Metal Cloud, highlights the company's continued commitment to open source and OIF.

Flex Metal Cloud provides on-demand infrastructure as a service powered by OpenStack. The hyper-converged infrastructure technology simplifies private cloud deployments, increases infrastructure flexibility, and can be deployed in minutes.
