OpenStack is free, open source software for building reliable cloud
Nova is a cloud computing fabric controller (the main part of an IaaS
system) built to match the popular AWS EC2 and S3 APIs. It is written in
Python, using the Tornado and Twisted frameworks, and relies on the
standard AMQP messaging protocol, and the Redis KVS.
Nova is intended to be easy to extend, and adapt. For example, it
currently uses an LDAP server for users and groups, but also includes a
fake LDAP server, that stores data in Redis. It has extensive test
coverage, and uses the Sphinx toolkit (the same as Python itself) for code
and user documentation.
While Nova is currently in Beta use within several organizations, the
codebase is very much under active development.
