Multi-cloud has become thenew standard and a lot of organizations see it as anecessary evil. Organizations cannot avoid investing in a cloud and still expect to remain competitive. However, it is extremely complex to deploy and manage a multi-cloud across diverse endpoints, while trying to use a single set of IT policies across them. In addition, developers want to get frictionless access to any cloud endpoint they choose.

OpenStack was founded with the intention to break free from the vendor lock-in that proprietary technology stacks such as VMware imposed, by bringing together diverse virtualization technologies under a single, open standard.
