But let’s do a reality check, folks: Take a look at many of the major public clouds — Amazon, Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Windows Azure — and there’s nary a mention of OpenStack. Even Oracle now has built a $1 billion cloud business without thinking much about OpenStack. So what’s the message for partners?
