What do Instagram and OpenPhoto have in common? Ubuntu!



Do you use OpenPhoto?

Sean Kerner at InternetNews recently revealed the fact that Instagram which was recently acquired by Facebook uses Ubuntu Server 11.04 to power their cloud. OpenPhoto which was a Kickstarter project and is becoming very popular in the wake of the Instagram acquisition is also powered by Ubuntu Server 11.04 but offers users the ability to take total ownership of their photos and rapidly deploy a crisp new way to manage photos.

I’m actually in the process of working on a juju charm to allow even faster deployment of OpenPhoto installs within the cloud which should suit those using AWS quite nicely and have also joined the OpenPhoto Team to help with Community Management.

Anyways enough rambling… Go fork a copy of OpenPhoto and get to hacking!
