    Krish – I reckon there’s an important point here that you’ve left out. Regardless of what the press release meant on day one (and yes, I had some banter with Christian as well – but the reality is that nothing was ever going to change from a technology perspective on day one) the fact is that with this announcement AWS, to some extent at least, anointed Eucalyptus at least for the time being as the hybrid partner of choice.

    It means EUca gets some medium term gains in terms of credibility and that AWS gets to tell a hybrid story. Of course as you suggest it also means that either EUca gets acquired (less likely) or AWS nicely and incrementally introduces all the EUca functionality within the AWS platform (more likely)

    Interesting indeed….

    We’ll wait and see – I’m not seeing an acquisition right now but anyway…
