The OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud computing platform has now released version 2012.2 Folsom.

New to the OpenStack Folsom release are new block storage (Cinder) and virtual networking (Quantum) components. Quantum and Cinder join various other components as part of the OpenStack core system.
