This week we had to trust on one single host. Hans took the honours of being the last one standing but brought us two great guests – Melissa Palmer & Caroline McCrory - to discuss Openstack and more specifically the current status knowing that it was OpenStack Summit in Paris this week.

2) Riverbed is forking out their SteelStore product line (fka WhiteWater) to NetApp who officially want to bring it to market by Q3-2015.
