Hi Sally,

Thanks for the note - and yes that's fine, I've pasted the rest of the entries below - please
bear in mind that this report is a work in progress so it is not fully complete. I have some
updates for you all on this process:

-We've pushed the deadline out to a week instead of 48 hours. Given that its Labor Day weekend,
we'd like responses by Wednesday 9/3 if at all possible. 

-Please note that this is a follow up report to our "Vendor Landscape: Private Cloud Overview"
report which will be going live later this week. This is not an evaluation piece, but rather
a reference point for our enterprise customers on your solution listed, along with 20+ other
software only private cloud solutions. In this report, we break down terminology between cloud
platforms, cloud management, and full private cloud suites and the functionality contained
within each. 

-Additionally, please be advised that we will NOT be accepting briefings as part of this report
process. You are welcome to schedule a briefing through our briefings team, but this will
not delay publication of this report. Please provide feedback using this survey (link here).
We will NOT be accepting feedback via email or phone inquiry.

I hope this information is helpful, please reach out to me directly if you have any questions
at all!

Best,
Mike

Hello again, Mike.

The Apache CloudStack are asking if there is any way they could see the copy of the entire
first bullet entitled “Cloud platform”? Would that be possible?

Thanking you in advance,
Sally

capabilities include: self-service request workflow, resource management, automated provisioning
(through element automation tools), and basic resource usage reporting. Common private cloud

portal while also leveraging its advanced hybrid capabilities. Core cloud management capabilities
include: process automation and orchestration, cost comparisons between cloud platforms supported,
template designers, and cloud governance.
