distribution. I hesitate to spam, but I do want to introduce Accelerite to the Apache CloudStack
community – who we are, how we do things, and what is our thinking on CloudStack. If you
missed the announcement about Accelerite acquiring CloudPlatform from Citrix, you can find
it here.     My name is Samir Agarwal, and I manage products at Accelerite. Our company strives
to be a preferred, premier provider of IT solutions to companies around the globe. The company
has three key business lines – Mobility and endpoint management, IoT, and Cloud Solutions.
This last business line is where our acquisition of CloudPlatform fits, and complements our
already existing self-service and disaster recovery & business continuity solutions. 
  In addition to building products from scratch, Accelerite regularly acquires assets from
other companies – much like CloudPlatform from Citrix. Almost always the first thing we
do is bring a strong focus on support to make sure our customers’ needs are being met. In
parallel we look to significantly increase our investments in R&D. We want to make sure
our existing and future customers see our commitment to the product, and an exciting roadmap
to go with it. This is exactly what we are planning to do with CloudPlatform as well.   
So, what does all of this mean for CloudStack? I can tell you that our commitment to CloudStack
is rock solid. You should fully expect to see us contributing to the CloudStack code base,
and owning even more items on the roadmap. We will be in meetups and CloudStack events to
further promote the cause of CloudStack and CloudPlatform. To say we are thrilled about the
possibilities doesn’t do justice to our level of excitement. My colleague, Lianghwa Jou,
and I met Ilya H, John K and Animesh C – all members of the CloudStack PMC - the other day
over lunch. We learned a great deal from them, and left with a resolve to further engage with
the community, and explore how we can make meaningful contributions. We are firmly of the
belief that the success of CloudPlatform lies in the success of CloudStack. Put more plainly,
without CloudStack, there is no CloudPlatform!    We look forward to an exciting relationship
with the CloudStack community.    Samir    DISCLAIMER==========This e-mail may contain privileged
