Subject AW: Supported by ACS logo
Date Wed, 11 May 2016 10:33:50 GMT
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.

Betreff: Re: Supported by ACS logo

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

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.

Warmest regards,

Vice President, Marketing & Publicity
The Apache Software Foundation

Subject: Supported by ACS logo

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 questions:

•         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

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.
