OpenStack

I love Amazon EC2 and S3. Who doesn't? But sometimes we just have to rely on our own infrastructure. And our prototype will probably be addicted to EC2/S3 commands by the end of it.

Not to fret though, OpenStack provides the same API, backup/export systems, and features as Amazon EC2's virtual machines.
