Forrester’s James Staten on OpenStack

Earlier today the OpenStack Design Summit kicked off here at the Hyatt in Santa Clara.  This four day event is bringing together developers, users and business people to discuss OpenStack and design its future.

Among this morning’s attendees was James Staten Forrester Research’s cloud guru.  I grabbed James at the first break and got his thoughts on the event’s kick-off and OpenStack in general.

Some of the ground James covers:

  • Why he chose to attend and what he’s looking for
  • What he thought of the opening presentations and how something like an OpenStack could alleviate some of the pain of outages like Amazon had last week.
  • What type of outcomes he would like to see from this weeks summit.
  • How important are programs like Rackspace’s cloud builder effort.
