Thomas Morin is a network engineer at Orange Labs, Lannion (Côtes-d’Armor, France). For several years he has been working on the virtualization of the network, a topic of growing interest.
Virtualization is at the heart of Open Stack, an open source project that Orange uses and to which Orange contributes. This is a distributed software program enabling the automated deployment of virtual machines in data centers. The idea: “to deploy our services with methods that come close to what is done in the best of IT“, explains Thomas Morin.
Open source culture is entrenched in the company and is essential to the development of its products and services; today, open source is emerging as a powerful innovation accelerator.
