Oracle ZFS and OpenStack: We're Ready [42801]
... and Waiting

Bob Handlin writes, "After Day 1 of the OpenStack Summit, the ongoing debate rages as it does will all newish things: Is OpenStack ready for prime time?

I think that as typically happens, people have done their best to twist the definition to match whatever they already do. Watch Larry Ellison's CloudWorld Tokyo keynote (there's a highlights video/but watch the whole thing). At at 22 minutes in, he walks you through how real cloud applications work..."
