While we missed it Suse has joined the OpenStack grouping of companies. They are one of 125 companies that have committed to the open source cloud solution. Now they are saying they will have a production ready solution in spring 2012. So what does that mean? Well they will be offering a fully supported setup for this new open source product. Now what about Ubuntu's offering? While Ubuntu will beat Suse to Market by releasing a solution this fall Suse isn't sure that OpenStack will meet it's production ready standards that soon. Suse has a demo of the BETA version of the soltuion available over at the Suse Gallery Site.
