Subject Re: OpenStack Revenues Approaching $3.4B: 451 Research
Date Thu, 28 Apr 2016 16:05:35 GMT

On the French Market :
1 year ago every body talk about OpenStack.
Now nobody care.
Why because a lot of big company lost a huge amount of money in POC

CloudStack is business ready.
We see more and more ISV build plugin for Cloudstack

In the 3.4 billion you have hardware, software and consulting.

HP sell Openstack with his hardware and mix the revenue.
Every Openstack supplier do that.

3.4 billion doesn't really exist !

A bient?t

I would be curious to know how many billions of $ of consulting and operational costs were
incurred to boost the $3.4B of revenues.  :)  I wonder which number is bigger...

You still can't upgrade an openstack cloud, so if you want to go to a new version, you have
to build a new cloud and migrate all of your workloads.

I am not saying you can't make money with openstack, but I would rather be an openstack consultant
than an openstack provider, and that says a lot about the actual technology...

I really don't know on what basis we are saying that openstack doesn't work... $3.4Bill of
revenues !!!

Fact is openstack is production-grade and catching up fast on most counts with ACS, and actually
ahead on some features like NFV.

Lets call a spade a spade

Openstack is just bitter because they still don't have a product that works and our product
works just fine.  Just goes to show that more money doesn't always solve the problem...  :)
 All that money and almost no success stories.  Kind of sad really...

Just bumped onto this article, thought of sharing:

The decision to turn over OpenStack to a foundation in 2012 stands in contrast to the CloudStack
platform and its parent, Citrix. Citrix donated<>
CloudStack to the Apache Software Foundation, but it was never set up with the same true,
multi-stakeholder, stand-alone foundation as OpenStack's.

"If Citrix would have done a foundation around CloudStack, we would now be at a Cloudstack
Summit, not OpenStack Summit," Sadowski said." Sadowski said.

The bold highlighted line was hurting a little bit!
