Titan for OpenStack, Made in Hong Kong

The Titan (formerly named Pandora), made in Hong Kong, by a Hong Kong man, is a new OpenStack management portal.  It aims at improving and fine-tuning some features of the original OpenStack Cloud administration.

Titan is a central administration software for OpenStack. It relies on horizon server, adding extra functions to it.  Users can use it to operate the OpenStack cloud.  The goal is simple: bringing OpenStack to commercial.  The OpenStack project is great, but it splits into many pieces, customers expect a powerful tool to administrate all of them in one.  Billing system and monitoring system are on the road map.  With these functions, Internet service providers will be getting easier to adopt into OpenStack ecosystem.  Helping people and enhancing OpenStack is their missions.

The Pandora which is now open-sourced for everyone will focus on private cloud deployment in helping small and medium enterprises to build and manage their private cloud easier and faster without paying expensive licenses.
