KIO Networks has been with the OpenStack community since 2011. We’ve been as foundation’s member for almost 3 years. We’ve passed the learning curve years ago. Koolfit has proved that.
Few guys passed by our booth really know us. Most them start saying: What’s Koolfit?
After hundreds of questions we mastered our introduction:
