VEXXHOST has been contributing to the OpenStack community since Bexar, its second release in 2011. We have also maintained a presence in the community by regularly attending OpenStack summits and being part of the Interop challenge during the Boston summit in 2017. You can read about the Interop challenge here. Our company has hosted OpenStack Canada day and has helped organize the Montreal OpenStack meetup as well. Additionally, our co-founder, Mohammed Naser, who is the PTL for OpenStack Ansible and part of the OpenStack Technical Committee, has given talks at Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto OpenStack meetups, CERN, Ansiblefest as well as OpenStack Summits all over the world.
Our company also plays a part in the community by actively contributing upstream code and sharing feedback with PTLs and developers. When we encounter bugs, we report them, diagnose them, and work with the community to get a full fix. Additionally, VEXXHOST is active on the mailing list and provides feedback and repairs, too.
We are also corporate sponsors and infrastructure donors for the OpenStack infrastructure team.
VEXXHOST exclusively runs OpenStack managed services across our entire infrastructure. We offer fully certified OpenStack powered cloud solutions that have been validated through testing to provide API compatibility for OpenStack core services. Our offering is fully open-source without any proprietary licensed technology. Additionally, we are currently running Ussuri. Just as in the past, we implemented the update on our clouds on the same day as the release.
