Differences in features: (

Reasons why i joined openstack project, in no particular order, all of them are important a lot for me and for most of them i could not find another project being at least half that good: * Free/Open spirit: * ( (reading this page told me a lot about authors) * Python, very readable, adaptable, extendable code. See also ( * AMQP for async operations * Large number of notable companies are joining -- * IRC channel -- many very smart and friendly people are here, having the right mood (!) * Very large active development team -- (

To be fair, what i do not like on openstack: * documentation is still very sparse. It is improving now, but still its not good enough. * live migration support is what i would love to see working (its coming, but not yet there) * i would love to see sheepdog or similar system integrated already (again, there are people working on that)

To sum it all: OpenStack is still very young, but it is clear to me that this project will win in the longer run. When i understood that there is no viable alternative, i decided to join the winning team.
