'Credible,' 'reliable,' 'exciting,' 'unpredictable' don't all belong in descriptions of IT infrastructure

OpenStack is an attempt to make something exciting -- the completely undefined space between clouds and how to navigate it -- and make it predictable and dull.

So far there's not a single specification all the cloud providers and toolmakers accept or can use to make cloud-computing less interesting, so a lot of peoplel appreciate Rackspace's willingness to help develops the software and make it available as open-source.

If it, and the federal IAAS clients, succeed, cloud computing will become a lot less interesting.
