Today in Sydney, the OpenStack Public Cloud Passport programme was launched, a collaboration between OpenStack public cloud providers from around the globe, and the OpenStack Foundation. It is an initiative offering potential users free trials of OpenStack public clouds, so they can better understand the benefits it offers them, as well as finding the provider that is most suitable.

New customers can take advantage of the Memset offering, with the help of our technical team, customers will be provisioning infrastructure in no time.

“The launch of the OpenStack Passport program here in Sydney, by open cloud providers worldwide, is the first step in our shared commitment to customer service,” said the Chair of OpenStack’s Public Cloud Working Group, Tobias Rydberg: “This is just the beginning, more public cloud providers will join the program, adding customer value for more locations, languages and legalities”.
