Earlier this month, Piston Cloud Computing Inc. was launched with $4.5 Million funding from True Ventures, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Divergent Ventures and others. It was founded by lead architect at NASA’s Nebula Cloud infrastructure, Joshua McKenty, along with Chris MacGown, formerly from Slicehost. Piston Computing is a typical example of what an open source project can do in a free market system. At OSCON 2011, I had a chance to talk with Josh on Piston Cloud Computing, OpenStack, its ecosystem and future, etc.. I have recorded the conversation below for CloudAve readers.
