Piston Cloud Computing, Inc.

The Piston executive team includes Zimbra General Manager Jim Morrisroe, former NASA Nebula Chief Technical Architect Joshua McKenty, former Rackspace luminary Christopher MacGown and former NASA Communications Director Gretchen Curtis.

The core product, Piston OpenStack™, is a massively scalable private cloud operating system built on OpenStack, with a focus on ease of use and advanced security features for highly regulated environments.

Piston helps drive OpenStack forward via code contributions, thought leadership through our role on the OpenStack Project Policy Board, and in support of the OpenStack developer community. We willingly share our expertise, leadership, guidance, vision and code with the community and other companies working to make OpenStack the industry standard in cloud. Piston’s goal is to further the natural evolution of the OpenStack project while focusing on meeting the needs of the enterprise.

The company was funded by CISCO Systems, Swisscom Ventures, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, True Ventures and Divergent Ventures, and is based in San Francisco, California.
