Fairbanks believes in the power of ‘open’ and the power of ‘software defined’. An open community provides a much stronger innovative force than any single individual supplier. And software defined increases flexibility, availability and independence in the data center.

OpenStack is not the only cloud solution Fairbanks provides. But it does combine both principles like no other. That’s why Fairbanks invests in OpenStack ever since 2012 to expand the OpenStack community in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. With OpenStack Meetups, the LinkedIn group OpenStack Netherlands, the website and the annual OpenStack Benelux Conference.
