We spend a lot of time answering questions about CloudStack community growth and progress since donating CloudStack to the Apache Software Foundation in April of this year.  While my gut reaction is to roll my eyes and say “Um, it’s only been 3 months!”, the reality is that the project has been picking up steam faster than anyone could have expected.

We thought it was mainly press and industry analysts who were interested in these numbers until last week I came across some in-depth analysis posted by a few bloggers. In the spirit of community, I’ll let them tell you how the project has been doing…

CloudStack has proof: Foundations is the way to create a FOSS community
“It’s just amazing! In just 3 months, CloudStack has gone directly to the same level as OpenStack is. This is much steeper community growth than I could have predicted”

CY12-Q2 Open Source Iaas Community Analysis — OpenStack vs OpenNebula vs Eucalyptus vs CloudStack
“During the past 3 months, the CloudStack numbers were growing at the fastest pace”
