Question: Openstack vs Cloudstack? What do enterprises do if they are dipping their toes in the water??
Randy: In summary what would you like to see happen in your vision give at least 3 examples/specifics
Question: Is Opencloud a reality or pipe dream?
The nirvana of hybrid cloud that people actually *want* is still 5 years out; I give even odds that OpenStack gets there before any single vendor.
Question: What are the top stories that are relevant at so far
Question: Why is Cassandra getting so much traction and funding re: Datastax
From an implementer's viewpoint, the simpler it is to move workloads between private (Open Stack) and public (AWS) the better. I see OS and AWS as complementary, not competitors
Remember, OpenStack is thus-far defined by doing things that were supposedly impossible. Many comparisons are irrelevant.
Randy, why do you think the OpenStack community needs an API opinion? and both support AWS, based on open source code, isn't that enough?
Q2: When you're thinking about AWS compatibility, what subset of services do you think of addressing?
