"Ubuntu is moving away from the open source Eucalyptus platform
in favor of OpenStack.
"I'm not surprised.
"OpenStack is now only a tech preview in Natty 11.04, but the
massive momentum behind OpenStack is undeniable. OpenStack has a
large ecosystem of over 50 contributing members including NASA,
Rackspace, Dell, Cisco, Brocade and Canonical In its short life -
the project is less than a year old - OpenStack has become a new
Eclipse, an open working group for an open cloud.
"Then there is Eucalyptus. Single vendor (hello Marten Mickos!)
and with a narrow ecosystem of contributions.
