IBM and Red Hat (RHT) are giving their official support to the OpenStack cloud infrastructure platform, which backers hope will emerge as an open-source alternative to Amazon (AMZN) and Microsoft's (MSFT) proprietary solutions. Cloud hosting firm Rackspace (RAX) stands to gain from OpenStack's adoption. Other key supporters include Dell, H-P, Cisco, and AT&T. Cloud infrastructure software vendor Citrix Systems (CTXS) just backed out.
