Organizations that have joined the project include AT & A, Dell, Arista Networks, AMD, Cisco, Canonical, Ericsson, HP, EMC, Intel, NEC, Go Daddy, IBM, Mellanox, Nexenta, Red Hat, Oracle, NetApp, Yahoo, VMware, and SUSE Linux among many other.

OpenStack falls into the category of Infrastructure as a Service. OpenStack makes it easy for end-users to add instances quickly, upon which any other cloud component can run. For instance, a mobile application which needs to communicate with a remote server can now divide the work of communication with users across the many instances, making scaling easier and quicker as the application gains users.
