Topic 1 -You’ve been involved with OpenStack for quite a while. Give us your background and how it’s evolve from Cloud Provider to Cloud Integrator.

Topic 2 - You originally were involved with OpenStack in the US (Internap), but now are doing quite a bit of work in Europe and Asia. How are the customer requirements different? Is the perception of OpenStack different in each region?

Topic 3 - As a Systems Integrator, does Solinea deploy a fixed “distro” of OpenStack (homegrown), or do you integrate various distros? If different distros, how much variability do you see between distros? Do you have a favorite?

Topic 4 - Are you seeing early customers wanting to use the entire set of OpenStack projects, or are there some that are more commonly used. What do you see as the most frequently requested of the new or upcoming projects?

Topic 5 - You’ve been both an operator and now an integrator. Where do you still see short-comings for OpenStack in terms of production operations? How many auxiliary systems do you typically have to build for customers?

The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Internap. Read Bare-Metal Cloud 101 to learn about bare-metal cloud and how it has emerged as a way to complement virtualized services.
