OpenStack is an open source cloud solution consisting of a series of interrelated projects which deliver various solution components.

Cisco contributes OpenStack code as open source software for the community. Cisco contributes core OpenStack software, OpenStack extensions in the form of OpenStack plugins (see OpenStack_Plugins) and services that enable the deployment and use of OpenStack (installer, etc.). The plugin extensions include Neutron (OpenStack networking) plugins and device drivers. Cisco's OpenStack related community and technical preview code contributions are documented in this wiki.
