Subject: Re: [ANNOUNCE] Open source distributed virtual machine scheduling platform

Thank you guys for the cheers. That is a very warm welcome for our little project ;) You bet
we will keep the hard work. There is much (really much) more to work on, with this project
we will have at least 2 masters’ thesis and 3 Ph.D. thesis; that is something to keep us
busy for the next 5+ years only in research and development (RD).

We hope you guys test the Autonomiccs platform and may even use it in your production environments.
If any of you want to chat in person, I will be at the ApacheCon NA (Thanks for the ASF funding)
that will be happening between May 09-11 in Vancouver and at the SERVICES conference that
will be happening between June 27 and July 02 in San Francisco.
