    OpenStack "Our relationship with eBay and PayPal is a partnership we're proud of, and a great example of the role VMware plays in both typical customer environments and in a bleeding-edge cloud development initiative," Balkansky said in the blog post."

"We're working with a lot of early adopter customers on OpenStack, and there's a lot of interest in it," Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat CEO*said. "But until those things go into production, there just won't be big dollars." Internet News | March 28, 2013 http://www.internetnews.com/ent-news/red-hat-ceo-optimistic-about-openstack.html VMware Loses More Than $2 Billion in Market Cap on PayPal / Ebay Rumors An update posted to the Business Insider web site attempts to distance itself from the comments. The CEO of Renski’s company Mirantis, says that Renski “exaggerating the use case” of OpenStack at PayPal and that Renski’s “knowledge of the project is second hand and therefore limited.” Renski’s title at Mirantis is executive vice president.

The move by the “Big Three” also is certain to add momentum for OpenStack, the open source cloud computing infrastructure project which grew out of a collaboration of Rackspace and NASA, and has quickly built a stable of support that includes Red Hat, Intel, Dell, Cisco, AT&T, Canonical, and SUSE.

That’s about 80,000 servers across their data centers, he said. Business Insider | March 25, 2013 http://www.businessinsider.com/a-dangerous-sign-for-vmware-paypal-chooses-rival- openstack-2013-3
  6. www.Trendkite.com* IBM Makes a Big Bet on OpenStack in the

    Cloud Its first move will be to spin up a private cloud service based on OpenStack. There’s also some new software, specifically something called IBM SmartCloud Monitoring Application Insight, that’s aimed at monitoring the progress and availability of cloud applications. There are also two other applications coming out, but they’re in beta. All Things D | March 14, 2013 http://allthingsd.com/20130304/ibm-makes-a-big-bet-on-openstack-in-the-cloud/ OpenStack Tapped for IBM's Cloud Future IBM has an impressive set of credentials in the world of open source: Apache, Linux, and Eclipse all owe much of their success to support from Big Blue. Now, the technology mainstay is putting substantial resources behind cloud platform OpenStack in hopes of securing its place as an essential cloud foundation. Midsize Insider | March 11, 2013 http://midsizeinsider.com/en-us/article/openstack-tapped-for-ibms-cloud-future* EUCALYPTUS, CLOUDSTACK, OPENSTACK AND OPENNEBULA: A TALE OF TWO CLOUD MODELS The most common understanding is that all CMPs are competing in the same market, trying to fill the same gap. Consequently, people jump to the wrong conclusion that after years of a fierce competition, there will only be one winner, a single open-source CMP in the market. However, as discussed by Joe Brockmeier in his post “It’s Not Highlander, There Can Be More Than One Open Source Cloud”, there is room in the market for several open-source CMPs that, addressing different cloud niches, will fit together into a broad open cloud ecosystem. OpenNebula.org | March 11, 2013 http://blog.opennebula.org/?p=4042 Cloud computing's big debt to NASA This means that just about every Fortune 1000 company will be using vendors that are building products and services based on the OpenStack-based cloud platform. Considering that OpenStack is less than three years old, this may be remarkable. Computer World | March 8, 2013 http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9237439/Cloud_computing_s_big_debt_to_NASA *

    Elastic Cloud Infrastructure Deployment IBS DataFort will deploy Open Cloud System in two clouds. The first is a dev/test environment for internal use. The second is a production, public cloud environment supporting the company’s customers in the Russian Federation. Both clouds will offer object storage and compute initially, with OCS Block Storage to be added later. “The momentum we’re seeing is a direct reflection of the fact that customers want an elastic cloud infrastructure based on OpenStack technology,” said Michael Grant. PR Web | February 28, 2013 http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/2/prweb10479427.htm OpenStack gets a boost from Coraid drivers Coraid claims these drivers will allow public, private and hybrid OpenStack-based clouds to integrate with its EtherDrive and EtherCloud platforms and deliver scalable, automated storage services. CloudPro | February 28, 2013 http://www.cloudpro.co.uk/iaas/5340/openstack-gets-boost-coraid-drivers * Cloudscaling Productizes OpenStack Folsom CTO Randy Bias says, "General availability of OCS version 2.0 is a major milestone. As far as we are aware, we're the only company to ship an elastic cloud infrastructure software solution built on OpenStack technology for public or private deployments."
