  • OpenStack User Survey Indicates Growth in Most Sectors
    A look at the numbers released last week by the OpenStack Foundation from its ninth user survey should be of interest to anyone considering the platform as part of a cloud solution.

Essentially the new investors are buying shares in a company that is worth less than it was during its prior funding rounds.
