Why did you decide to become a partner to the OpenStack Days Nordic?
As an OpenStack community cloud provider in the Nordic market it is a perfect match. We want to show the market that it’s possible to build commercial services based on Openstack. It ‘s also important for us to stimulate the adoption of Openstack in the Nordics.

We hope to be able to show existing and prospective customers that modern cloud infrastructure can play an important role in their IT transformation.
What are your thoughts on the Nordic OpenStack community?
We are looking forward to doing our part, as an OpenStack community cloud provider, to spread knowledge of OpenStack to a wider audience. We’re looking forward to contribute to a Nordic community.

We deploy OpenStack clouds, are active contributors to several projects within OpenStack and participate in the community events such as the OpenStack Summits. Our Openstack also integrates with the Open Contrail project for Software Defined Network, an opensource project where IPnett is one of ten founding members of the partner advisory council.
How are you using OpenStack?
We develop and operate OpenStack based community clouds today. We also use it in our internal development and testing.
