OpenStack Cloud Software Variants becoming prevalent as OpenStack is a Free Software and as matter of fact various variants coming out might confuse any one. Rackspace is the major company behind OpenStack Cloud Software in practical sense, the original software due to flexible licensing is by nature is prone to variations. The word OpenStack Cloud itself has been a promoting phrase.
OpenStack Cloud Software Variants : The current Scenario
Variety of offerings based on OpenStack Cloud Software that have been proposed and being distributed by various providers in recent months is a confirmation of the size of the open source cloud project, but at the same time can be confusing for the customers and can harm the brand image of Rackspace as one of the most careful service provider. The choice of companies such as Rackspace, Red Hat, HP, CloudScaling, SUSE, Ubuntu is basically not easy; most important, some brands like HP actually has copy pasted pricing from Rackspace’s pricing chart.
Since many years, Richard Stallman gives importance to one thing, Free Softwares are liable to be abused by the long playing giants. That is the basic reason for including a copy of GPL license mandatory with the distribution. Most developers (take WordPress devs) never scroll downs to check that there is a paragraph that is actually dummy ! Usually all drag and drop the text file.
Some of the partner companies like PayPal, Webex, HP actually do not have very good profile from an average consumer’s aspect. In order to run the free software running we actually often need to accept all (because we, the free software and free hardware crusaders do not consider to take out an eye for an eye) but it is very important to make the redistribution, policies very nicely legally packed. Most importantly, Microsoft and Amazon (Second and Third most evil companies on this Earth as I wrote in my preface of agenda Free Health Foundation version 1.0) can invest to destroy OpenStack Cloud. Users must be careful about using these OpenStack Cloud Software Variants, because of possible negative modifications, variation in SLA, Vendor Lock in-etc.
OpenStack Cloud Software Variants : WordPress.org is the best guide for any Open Source / Free Software Foundation
WordPress.org is the only Software Foundation that has the most advanced, most flexible, most rigid to abuse, most easy to find content – be by an average user or by persons directly related to core part like me. WordPress also offers variations, but the enforcement is API based. OpenStack Cloud Software is great never means it is the winner. WordPress established itself just because Matt has the excellent capability to handle such a rush. He made WordPress.org out of his control when he understood its the time.
There is not much difference between OpenStack Cloud Software and WordPress – who said that an individual user can not use OpenStack Cloud Software ? It is a wrong conception set by the grade C hosting companies with those crap looking always popping up Ads – cPanel hosting.
