The Superuser Awards recognize teams using OpenStack to meaningfully improve business in an innovative way, while also contributing back to the community.

Check out highlights from the four nominees and click on the links for the full applications:

  • EnterCloudSuite, a public OpenStack platform launched in 2013, has been working with OpenStack since the Cactus release. They’ve worked to position OpenStack as the conquering David in the Goliath of Europe’s public cloud arena, winning the confidence of the EU government to provide cloud services and organizing OpenStack Italy days and ops meetups.
  • The National Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou (NSCC-GZ) Sun Yat-Sen University first deployed OpenStack in June, 2013 with 256 nodes. They are currently running 1,000 nodes on the Tianhe-2 cloud platform along with five control nodes and three MariaDB nodes, one StackWatch and 30,000 virtual machines.
  • VEXXHOST has been contributing to the OpenStack community since 2011. The company’s offering is fully open source without any proprietary licensed technology. Among many other technologies, they currently use Nova with KVM with Libvirt, Ceph centralized storage, Pacemaker for high availability, MySQL Galera for database and Puppet for config management.
  • Whitestack is a startup focused on promoting the adoption of cloud computing in emerging markets, aiming to bring benefits of hyper-scalability to places where it’s still uncommon. The team regularly contributes to Superuser and other blogs and speaks at important industry events, like the Open Infrastructure Summit and ETSI OSM events. In addition, they contribute code to the OpenStack and Open Source Mano projects.

Each community member can rate the nominees once by April 2 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
