OpenStack Cloud Providers Support Federated Identity

A group of OpenStack cloud providers have committed to support the new federated identity feature available in the OpenStack Kilo release, which was released at the end of April. This will make it easier to provision and operate hybrid workloads in multi-cloud environments.

“OpenStack cloud providers are delivering on the promise of a global network of clouds that app developers can leverage depending on their needs,” said Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation. “Today, the OpenStack community is putting app developers in the driver’s seat, giving them the power to choose the price, performance and geography that best suit the needs of their apps, matching workloads to the best resources. No other cloud platform promises what OpenStack can deliver.”

The list of companies supporting federated identity includes:

  • Anchor, 
  • Aptira, 
  • Auro, 
  • Blue Box Cloud, 
  • Breqwatr
  • Bright Computing
  • Cisco
  • City Network
