Hi marketing folks

First of all, Ilya, I think this is a fantastic initiative.  Cloudstack is great technology,
its main weakness to date has been poor perception in the market: as a second rate player
to Openstack.

The main issue I see is that Rackspace, et al *openly* back Openstack whereas Citrix back
CS from a distance (I wont criticise Citrix for this, they have been great in their donation
and MASSIVE contribution to date) . Therefore, we don't have a big name vendor assocated with
the project

At ShapeBlue, we have done a lot over the last year to help *try* and change that perception,
but theres still lots more to do.

I'm about to go on vacation for a week, so haven't really got time to start to work up ideas
and tell you how I (we) can contribute to this effort, but we certainly will.

Kind Regards

Giles Sirett
CEO  & Managing Consultant (UK)
