Subject Re: What Gartner can't - or won't - tell you about OpenStack Cloud
Date Sat, 13 Oct 2012 17:11:15 GMT
Hi folks:

So a couple of comments.
I appreciate the level of passion seen in this thread - it tells me
that people love CloudStack. That said, open source projects competing
among themselves is almost always fruitless. The world is large enough
for two, three, or more open source IaaS projects. (Just like the
world is big enough for PostgreSQL and MySQL; Red Hat, Ubuntu, SLES,
Slackware, and others.) In short, this project's goal is not to beat
OpenStack. The goal is to be a useful, stable, community-led
Infrastructure-as-a-Service open source project.

When you see articles that contain misinformation, it's perfect
acceptable to provide corrections. It's also important to catch what
they see as legitimate defects - file those as bugs, and lets correct
them. Far more valuable though, IMO, is that we spend our time doing
the the following two things:
1. Testing, fixing, and documenting Apache CloudStack so that it is
the best IaaS platform available. (Have you tested the latest 4.0.0 RC
builds?)
2. Telling the story of how/why we use CloudStack (notice I didn't say
why it's better, or why it beats $foo project)

To that end, John Kinsella has been working with Apache Infrastructure
to get an Apache CloudStack planet setup where we can aggregate such
blogs, so watch for updates on this front and consider aggregating
your blog there, but don't hesitate to start blogging now :)
