AT&T announced that it joined the OpenStack Community during the 2012 AT&T Developer Summit. This is a significant move for AT&T and cloud computing. OpenStack was formed to address the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) layer when proprietary cloud stacks were emerging. Rackspace and NASA started the OpenStack initiative in July 2010 with the intention to create open industry standards. Since then, it has grown into a community of more than 150 companies and 2,300 members. To learn more, see John Donovan's blog.

Thank you, I did follow the link and read the case studies. How if at all was AT&T involved in these projects? Is the AT&T cloud infrastructure associated with the MercadoLibre or SanDiego Computer Center projects? If not, do you have any AT&T-specific cases like these?

AT&T is involved in OpenStack in the following ways.
- Contributing code, bug fixes, and documentation
- Contributing blueprints for new functions
- Providing Legal and Business resources for drafting the OpenStack Foundation
AT&T's OpenStack infrastructure is not related to the MercadoLibre or SDCC projects.
AT&T's OpenStack infrastructure is currently a private cloud used to support various AT&T projects and initiatives.
