Do these acquisitions imply the big consolidation, and hence the close of ecosystem? Your thoughts?

Manju Ramanathpura you know I thought about it a bit. Kinda glad @blueboxjesse guys are still operating standalone - good for community.

David Pollack might just be rearrangement of deck chairs. too early to tell

Manju Ramanathpura But I don't necessarily think this is close or ecosystem as well. Startup will be replaced by some of the large companies in the ecosystem. Like RH, HP, IBM.....

Jesse Proudman This is an indication on the validity of this market. Every one wants a seat at the table and wants a strong story to tell, yet it's hard for most enterprises to generate that story on their own.

Jesse Proudman @zehicle Market timing is also critical. It wasn't until more recently that buyers were ready to sink material investment into OpenStack proper.

Evan Powell Users want something that does a job for them. We repackage open stack ended up not being a job many especially early users of OpenStack found to be valuable.

Jesse Proudman It's an incredibly healthy sign for the ecosystem in general.

Sriram (Cloud Don) @blueboxjesse agreed. and interestingly, it is when many of the analysts started moving from strongly negative views to neutral/ semi positive reviews on OpenStack

Rob Hirschfeld @blueboxjesse if you think back to the Bexar summit in SA, there was an even earlier group that left (Citrix, Accenture...)

Jeff Dickey I don't think OpenStack is ready as a product for the eco-system to be closed yet.

What does everyone think about EMC buying Cloudscaling? Good or bad for the ecosystem?

Jeff Dickey I think it's a great thing if they treat Cloudscaling like they treated VMware

Jeff Dickey @zehicle What will happen next year when all of the OEMs have their own proprietary version of OpenStack? Will they actually continue to contribute when they are competing head-to-head?

Stuart Miniman @nextcast Cloudscaling doesn't have the size or revenue to be completely independent inside EMC; it will help build the EMC OpenStack+commodity hw stack solution group which should have ability to not follow the same GTM/plans as core-EMC

Manju Ramanathpura @stu spot on with your observation on EMC & Cloudscaling. Part of me also thinks this is a service play for EMC, not just ( or may not be at all ) a product/solution play. What do you think?
0 Votes Vote
Stuart Miniman @ItsTheNetwork for EMC to be successful in open source - and they are trying w projects like @EMCCODE - it will definitely need to have a large service component. And EMC has more services than most people realize.

Jesse Proudman I think it's wonderful news and I'm very much looking forward to EMC's October 28th announcement. It's obvious they've put some thought into a much larger roadmap.
