Subject Re: What Gartner can't - or won't - tell you about OpenStack Cloud
Date Sat, 13 Oct 2012 16:50:46 GMT
Pretty scary FUD below from that article:

"Don’t consider CloudStack. It will soon die. True, it is getting some traction in the enterprise
because Citrix is pushing it, using its enterprise sales muscle–plus it has a pretty UI.
But the truth is that OpenStack has already surpassed CloudStack feature-wise. More importantly
– hype or no hype – RedHat, Canonical and SUSE chose to align with OpenStack over CloudStack.
Because of that, CloudStack only runs on Ubuntu 10.04 host OS, which is 3 years old and doesn’t
have driver support for some of the newer hardware. As time passes, this will only get worse."
