  • Topic 1: How is OpenStack Foundation different from Linux Foundation or other OSS governance?
  • Topic 2: RefStack, OpenStack Interop Project
  • Topic 3: How should customers view the debates about adding AWS API to OpenStack?
  • Topic 4: Looking forward to OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong (key issues, new designs, etc.)
  • Topic 5: Piston Cloud architecture -- focused on “enterprise," some “VMware-like features” (live VM migrations, resource pooling, security), but also a focus on pets vs. cattle architecture.
