Why Did VMware “REALLY” Join the OpenStack Foundation?

Vmware Joins Openstack

I read about VMware joining the OpenStack Foundation yesterday on Gigamon and I couldn’t help but think what’s coming next for these poor chaps…chuckle, chuckle!

Article: Finally! VMware joins the OpenStack Foundation, this time for real.

Pure Speculation!

Should I wonder what kind of deals were made behind the scene? Or do you think this is just VMware wanting to play nice?

We’ll have to let this play out but I am not holding my breath – maybe RackSpace will also be owned by VMware soon?
