    OpenStack is an open sources platform which means you can change access its source code, make changes in it and then upload it or share it on any community.
    Its a cloud computing platform which is used for deployment and management of cloud infrastructure platform. You can use pooled virtual resources to manage private and public clouds.

      OpenStack is a cloud platform that facilitates the distribution of computing power.

      It is an open-source platform that uses pooled virtual resources to build & manage private and public clouds. The tools that comprise the OpenStack platform, called "projects," handle the core cloud computing services of computing, networking, storage, identity, and image services. More than a dozen optional projects can also be bundled together to create unique, deployable clouds.

      In virtualization, resources such as storage, CPU, and RAM are abstracted from a variety of vendor-specific programs and split by a hypervisor before being distributed as needed. OpenStack uses a consistent set of application programming interfaces (APIs) to abstract those virtual resources 1 step further into discrete pools used to power standard cloud computing tools that administrators and users interact with directly.

      Advantages of OpenStack
      • Few prerequisites are needed to use it: Cloud services can be used on any device with internet access
      • High reliability and data security
      • Scalable storage volume and performance
      • Cloud services enable collaboration
      • Access is not limited by location
      • High distribution and acceptance
      • Uniform standards

      Disadvantages of OpenStack
      • OpenStack does not offer any sort of organized support. A lot of documentation and helpful articles can be found online, but it can take quite a bit of time and effort to find the right ones. Unlike commercial solutions, there is no dedicated customer support.
      • Highly-dynamic range of functions: OpenStack is an open and very dynamic cloud-computing solution. New functions are added regularly, but some other functions can also be removed.
      • KVM and XEN are primarily supported as hypervisors, which can lead to problems when integrating other virtualization solutions such as VMWare.

        By delivering a platform with on demand, resource pooling, selfservice, highly elastic, and measurable services characteristics, OpenStack improves business agility, availability, and efficiency. This sounds a lot like cloud computing, and it is. OpenStack is the key to putting together your own cloud infrastructure.

        Benefits of Using OpenStack in Your Business
        • Enables rapid innovation
        • Cuts down time-to-market
        • Boosts scalability and resource utilization
        • Eases regulatory compliance
        • Devoid of vendor lock-in
