re: Google App Engine Swings, But OpenStack Is King
One of the pain points for early OpenStack implementers was the lack of load balancing, a standard feature in the Google App and Compute engines, Amazon Web Services EC2 and Windows Azure. The PayPal implementers came up with load balancing for their environment, contributed it back to the community and it was added to the Grizzly release. Just a footnote to OpenStack history.

Most of these user comments reflect a first round of implementing OpenStack under its earlier versions. These are early adopters, suffering the pains of being in that position. OpenStack evolves with a new release every six months and its users will have the option of upgrading to a more advanced, better integrated version when they choose.

That split between what works on OpenStack versus what stays on VMware is very interesting. And interesting that a highly virtualized VMware stack is the legacy environment in that scenario.
