Microsoft may try to revive support for Hyper-V in
OpenStack as the community considers removing the code, which one
OpenStack developer called broken and unmaintained, from the stack.
If it is removed, few people are likely to miss it. "I don't
know of any production deployment of it. I don't know of any active
development deployment of it," said Joshua McKenty, CEO of Piston
Cloud Computing. McKenty was the technical architect of NASA's
Nebula cloud platform, which spun off into OpenStack, and is very
involved in the OpenStack community.
