The momentum building in OpenStack’s favor is also apparent in other ways. OpenStack, known for infrastructure-as-a-service, may be moving toward becoming an important platform-as-a-service (PaaS) with features for rapid software development.

The pieces of open-source code in OpenStack such as Heat, Trove and Marconi may be paving the way toward PaaS. Alex Freedland, CEO at OpenStack services company, Mirantis, in Mountain View, California, said, "One of the first things Havana has forced us to revisit is the definition of OpenStack as a provider of only infrastructure-as-a-service." Infrastructure still remains a focus, but clearly, he added, “OpenStack is moving up the stack into the platform-level services and the community is pushing it there."

Any progression in new directions will become even more apparent next month, when OpenStack holds its OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong beginning November 5. This is where developers and OpenStack users around the world have the opportunity to weigh in on the future of cloud computing.
