re: The Great Cloud API Debate
Boris Renski is right. OpenStack should have native APIs that it alone controls. But what the project is actually doing is patterning them on the only defacto standard out there, Amazon's APIs. Support for AWS APIs outside the core code then becomes a logical addition to the project. Isn't that what's happening?

re: The Great Cloud API Debate
Any effort that focuses on the services that end users care about and while reducing the operational complexity of implementing and running clouds is likely to be well worth it. I discussed this in a recent blog on the Cloud API debates and am interested to hear what other think. http://community.ca.com/blogs/...

re: The Great Cloud API Debate
I guess this largely hinges on whether you think Amazon is going to maintain its hegemony in the long term, right? If so, it's in OpenStack's best interests to make the APIs core. Who's willing to bet against AWS?
