Re: Ecosystem is more important
CenturyLink recently announced that they are deploying RedHat's OpenShift PaaS on premise. An interesting choice given their recent acquistions of Tier3 and Appfog. As CenturyLink's John Liptak, principal architect, puts it "Red Hat's open source technologies allowed us to solve problems with a real understanding of what is available to us rather than just taking a vendor's sales pitch."

Having a complete working solution built across an entire open source eco-system with an enterprise like Red Hat backing it with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, Red Hat JBoss® Web Server, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Operations Network, OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, Red Hat JBoss Fuse, Red Hat Consulting, and Red Hat Training - appears to be more important than just open sourcing a few pieces of the solution.

Ecosystem is more important
For cloud computing era, as a cloud service provider the most important thing is to attrack more developers and partners instead of working in your own silo. The ecosystem is much more important compared to technology itself. You need to have a healthy ecosystem composed of developers, partners and the representative from user community. Ohterwise, your cloud offerings may not survive for long.

How much Cloud Foundry use on-premises?
Why would anyone need this if Cloud Foundry is available as a public cloud service, on Amazon Web Services to be exact? A spokesman for Pivotal tells me, "The majority of development on Cloud Foundry today is happening in a company's private infrastructure. Although we have not released exact numbers to date, we know that in terms of subscribers we have roughly a 70% - 30% split; 70% on-premise, and 30% in public cloud." Any one using Cloud Foundry on premises who's interested in a Bosh assist?
