VMware’s Gelsinger dismisses OpenStack for enterprise

It will never catch on

VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger has waded into the open source cloud project OpenStack. Gelsinger said he did not expect it to catch on significantly in the enterprise market, instead he says it’s more of a platform for service providers to build public clouds.
