"The comment was made by Eucalyptus CEO M?rten Mickos to New
York Times blogger Quentin Hardy, in a Bits article on the open
source ecosystem that has grown up around Amazon Web Services (AWS)

"Hardy did a good job summarizing the various players in the
sector: Open Nebular; OpenStack, Cloud.com, and the aforementioned
Eucalyptus, and their overall role with respect to AWS. He zeroed
in on Eucalyptus, which was a good choice, too--even though
OpenStack and Cloud.com have a lot of PR mojo going right now,
there's no getting around the fact Eucalyptus has garnered a lot of
commercial success for itself. Eucalyptus, as Hardy pointed out, is
also more integrated with AWS infrastructure. "
