Subject SV: Supported by ACS logo
Date Thu, 12 May 2016 13:07:16 GMT
#9 for my part.
Seems to go better with enterprise profiling and advertisement. No monkey
and a sleek design.

#1 could work, but with other logos with “boxes”, #9 could stand by its own
and even with logos with boxes.


All good work, a big thumbs up from Norway!


Best regards

Hello to all,


sorry for the delay, but our designer was off for some weeks. 

But finally we have put together some proposals and I personally like the
idea with the “stamp “ (option 5 or 6) best. So you can stamp your homepage
or any other Marketing Material with “powered by ACS”. And we can easily
include the proposal of Giles and replace the slogan “powered by” with
"supporter of" or  "contributor to"


Kindly have a look at following URL and we are looking forward for
your comments and feedback.


Thanks and best regards.

Hi Andre - welcome to the community - great to see you here and I look
forward to working with you and your colleagues 


It's great news that you can dive straight in with this important work


I can't find the old thread on this, but in summary I think it stalled
because the cloudstack logo didn't fit nicely inside the "powered by" circle
that Sally references ( it resulted in the cloudstack logo being very small)


Maybe it could be made to work bu somebody with an eye for design. But as
ilya says, we don't have to stick with that design - it's not obligatory 


Maybe best to come up with some ideas and post a link here


Also : I've always thought that it would be good to give some options that
are not just "powers by"


A few with words like "supporter of" and "contributor to" would be great 


Kind Regards

Thanks, André --your timing is good, actually.


We just launched the new ASF identity yesterday, and will continue rolling
out the new assets over the next few months.


To that end, we have an existing "Powered By Apache" campaign that can be
used generally or specifically with certain Apache projects. Please see


Again, given that our launch was just 26 hours ago, the icon for Apache
CloudStack on file is the old one, but still very much valid. If this fits
your needs, feel free to use as appropriate.

Dear all,


I am pretty new to CloudStack community and want to start my thread with a
short introduction.

I am working for BIT.Group GmbH and heading the area called “Cloud
Services”. There we are delivering Infrastructure Management Services to big
customers (mainly SAP) with a clear focus on open source technologies. That
means we do classical IT outsourcing specialized on implementing and
operating virtualization and OS layer with Experts / Administrators in
Germany (Dresden) and China (Shanghai). 


Giving this background we started last year to build up an own “BIT.Cloud”
and decided to use Apache Cloud Stack and Ceph as focus technologies. Our
experiences with ACS are really good (clearly we find the one or the other
optimization potential ;-)), we had great interactions in the community
already and we decided to deepen our involvement. So hopefully you will hear
now inputs from our side quite more often and we especially want to increase
the CloudStack presence in the German speaking area.


What we currently miss is a kind of “supported by ACS” logo, because we want
to publish our Cloud offering with a clear statement of our focus
technologies. I heart that there were already discussions in the past, but
somehow it did not come to an end. Do you also see the need or in general
would you support the initiative to get such a logo?


In case most of you answer the question with yes, I see following main


·         Would you use the cloud stack (word), the monkey logo or the
combination of both?

·         Are there any legal restrictions which we have to consider (e.g.
does somebody has to approve this from ASF side?)

·         Do you know why the initiative in the past did not succeed?  

·         Did someone in the past already created some drafts or similar?

·         In case we have some logo proposals clearly some will like it and
some won’t. Will we start a voting procedure or how does this work usually?


Please excuse this maybe stupid questions, but as I initially wrote, I am
quite new to this J.


My wish would be, that everybody can use such a “supported by” logo in case
he wants to and I would offer to engage our designer, to prepare some design
proposals and share the results with you.


I am looking forward for a fruitful discussion and your feedback.


Thanks and best regards.
