In a demo at the Canonical booth at the OpenStack Summit, Mark Baker Ubuntu Server and Cloud Product Manager explained what the Orange Box is all about. Ubuntu at OpenStack SummitThe system is a 10-node mobile box. Each node has an Intel i5-3427U CPU, 16GB of RAM and 120GB SSD storage. The system is pre-loaded with the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr" release and can be used to deploy OpenStack.

In another demo, Canonical demonstrates the world's first 64-bit ARM server running OpenStack.
