Subject RE: CloudStack VS OpenStack - stack wars

One last thing which is that of maturity.  Although the name "CloudStack" is fairly new the
project has been around for quite a bit more time than OpenStack but just under the name VMOps
and then before being acquired by Citrix and then eventually becoming Apache CloudStack.

Ilya, it's a difficult one to answer on this list.

However, if you try to remain objective I would point out some reading to your management:

-Dell is holding off on openstack cloud offering:

-HP cloud running on openstack is considered a fork (I could not find a more recent article,
so one would need to check this):

-And the gartner "warning":

Other than that, I think the best thing to do is a 2 weeks bake off at your company to evaluate
what works best for your local constraints.

to mention the numbers - but they are very significant. As a point of comparison, just go
to any job site (I used linkedin job search feature) and use look for number of current opening
for cloudstack and then openstack.
