    “A small service provider still thinks OpenStack is not reliable when we have Rackspace and HP betting their cloud on OpenStack.”

    As an OpenStack implementor, I can say that it isn’t as polished or workable as a product like CloudStack or Eucalyptus. But it is still better than what Rackspace Cloud currently offers. All Rackspace Cloud customers on Scalr have expressed desire to move to Amazon. We’ve had to reassure them that Rackspace will be improving soon with Nova.

    So I don’t believe this to be FUD. The small service provider is right to be concerned with reliability. Rackspace can’t afford to stay on it’s current Cloud platform.
