Are OpenStack, Amazon compatibility possible?
OpenStack underlying services have been designed to resemble those of Amazon Web Services. correct? If Rich Wolski is right, and I suspect he is, how hard would it be to modify a subset of OpenStack services to make them work in a way that's similar to Amazon's, if an OpenStack service supplier decided to do that? Perhaps the supplier would like Amazon S3 to serve as a compatible storage for backup or disaster recovery purposes. But the Swift storage service in OpenStack must do some things differently from S3, and any OpenStack provider that modifies Swift in his own setting must then maintain those changes through successive OpenStack releases. Ugh. You wouldn't do it that way, would you? How do you make OpenStack storage and S3 both available to an OpenStack user?

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
