Piston OpenStack™ is a software product that uses advanced systems intelligence to orchestrate an entire private cloud environment using commodity hardware.
Created by several of the founders of OpenStack®, Piston continues to drive the OpenStack project forward via code contributions, thought leadership through the OpenStack Project Policy Board, and in support of the OpenStack developer community. We willingly share our expertise, leadership, guidance, vision and code with the community and the other companies working to make OpenStack the industry standard in cloud. Piston’s goal is to further the natural evolution of the OpenStack project while focusing on meeting the needs of the enterprise.
The company was funded by CISCO Systems, Swisscom Ventures, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, True Ventures and Divergent Ventures, and is based in San Francisco, California.
At Piston, we continually strive for a balanced and diverse workforce to support our growing organization. We are pleased to operate within and contribute to a community that values people of any race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, age, marital status, sexual orientation, physical ability, military status, familial status, or political affiliation. We share the belief that a commitment to diversity yields a true competitive advantage borne from a broad spectrum of ideas, perspectives, creativity and innovation critical to our continued leadership in Cloud Computing technologies and the OpenStack community. Our San Francisco office is headquartered downtown on the fifth floor of a wheelchair-accessible building close to BART and Muni lines. – less
