Until release SIX, the TSC consisted of Vanessa Little (VMWare), Matt Harper (RIFT.io), Gerardo García de Blas (Telefónica), Mark Shuttleworth (Canonical) and Jatinder Pancar (Intel).

The current feature set is the result of contributions from Whitestack and other leading organizations, which all believe that the telecom industry needs to leverage the benefits of Cloud computing and SDN.

Whitestack humbly receives all these achievements, and observes with satisfaction that our clear vision and resolute execution regarding Cloud, SDN and NFV are being noticed by the Industry.
