OpenStack is an open cloud computing platform founded by Rackspace and backed by NASA, see openstack.org. It's to counter the proprietary cloud offerings of Amazon's AWS and Microsoft's Azure. Ok, so maybe this doesn't exactly go under the 'operating systems' menu item, but it's pretty close.  From their meetup page:

This is the Atlanta OpenStack developer Meetup. We are a group of free software developers who are passionate about working together to help make the Openstack project a success!

Can't wait for the next meetup? Join us on IRC! We hang out on Freenode at #openstack-atlanta. See the Atlanta OpenStack Meetup page.

    This month, Mark will be previewing his Sydney Summit Talk for the group. Here's his abstract:

    Neutron provides a rich set of routing options when deploying OpenStack.  In this session, we will dive into world of Neutron routing integrations and examine the architecture, benefits and operational needs of routing in Neutron.  We will begin with a dive into Neutron's Legacy and DVR implemenations and they have evolved to meet Operator needs.  We will then expand our discussion into the Open Source implementations in available OVN, OpenContrail and MidoNet.  We will complete our tour of Neutron routing by surveying the dynamic routing options and the current state of hardware integration.  We will close with a discussion of the future of routing in Neutron.
