Hi Jerome -- I believe you're right that OpenStack is used primarily for building IaaS. I don't really see that as a limitation though. Amazon has built a pretty good business focused on IaaS. I think AWS is the main competitor for cloud technologies like OpenStack.

Hi Everyone

Hi Marcia,

Yes, looking at the number of companies, and precisely the names of these, OpenStack can obsolutely experiment a success. I wonder to know if Amazon is part of these members ?

The last time i've read about this open source platform, i saw that it's for building IaaS, could you confirm ? If yes, isn't a limitation? Or must we clearify these cloud service ? i mean, PaaS, SaaS ...

Thanks!

practical guidance
Al offers solid advice for organizations wanting to get started with OpenStack. With so many aspects to OpenStack, it would be impractical to take it all on at once.

OpenStack has definitely come a long way; I read that last week's OpenStack developer summit in Paris attracted more than 4,500 attendees.
