SAN FRANCISCO, July 26, 2011 - Convirture, maker of virtualization management software, announced today that it has joined the OpenStack initiative to contribute its resources and expertise to help move the project along and make it a success. The OpenStack initiative was designed to create freely available code, standards, and common ground for the benefit of both cloud providers and cloud customers.

Convirture is the company behind ConVirt, which is sophisticated, enterprise-grade software for managing virtualization and private-cloud environments based on open platforms such as Linux, Xen and KVM.
