Subject Re: Permission to use the Apache Cloud Stack Logo on CloudBand Ecosystem Progra
Date Thu, 25 Jul 2013 13:47:39 GMT
So Giles, I see you point as well, but then what value does the CloudStack name have then in
their or any other EcoSystem? Is it just a place card that says they can work with Apache
CloudStack, or is it a label that means that there is a true connection and function between
these two entities?

I really would love to see A-L be a part of CloudStack just like Solidfire, Cisco, F5 and
yes even Citrix have done. I think we have a lot of work on that side of the community and
participation. But I also want to see the CloudStack logo not end up like others in the space
and just thrown on every website everywhere because they can call our APIs.

I thought of a quality over a quantity approach has served groups like Apache better from
what I've seen in the past and understood about the mission.

Either way looks like it's underway.

(All IMO)

I see where you're coming from, but I disagree. I think we should be welcome in vendors who
are doing ANY form of integration with Cloudstack and doing what we can to support them in
telling the world that theyre using Cloudstack

If these guys want to list ASC as a technology they're using: that's great IMO

Obviously , we would all prefer to find vendors that make code contributions from the outset,
but if folk don't then I still think it's a good thing that they've chosen Cloudstack and
can get involved on some level or another. (an the guys calling the API today *may* start
to write some code tomorrow)

Debbie, the trademark guidelines are here

I've just noticed David has already sent your mail on to Trademarks@

Kind Regards

Does your product just make calls to the CloudStack API, or does it have actual code interaction
and function with CloudStack? If it's just calling the API, it doesn't seem to really be part
of the EcoSystem rather than having full integration into the product. We have several products
that are fully integrated with code plug-ins and code contributions that have been done.

Just not sure if there is an actual ecosystem interaction if it's just calling the product
rather than fully interfacing with it.

We use CloudStack APIs in our CloudBand Product. We recently launched a
new NFV ecosystem community at we would
like your permission to use the Apache CloudStack Logo, in our platform
partners section on the home page?

Thank you,
