OpenStack is an open source cloud implementation. It allows any organization to create and offer cloud computing capabilities using open source software running on standard hardware. RACKSPACE and NASA are joined by leaders from across the technology industry like CITRIX, DELL, NTT DATA, RIGHTSCALE and others to drive a deployable, totally open cloud solution.
The OpenStack framework is written using PHP, and Swift, for scalable distributed object store. Swift features object, container, account, auth, and proxy services based on code from hoster Rackspace.
Ubuntu is set to include the technology in its next release as an alternative to their popular Eucalyptus platform. source
