Surprise Merge VMWARE and Openstack

Gigaom Reported Just in time for VMWorld, VMware is about to join the OpenStack Foundation as a Gold member, along with Intel and NEC, according to a post on the Openstack Foundation Wiki. The applications for membership are on the agenda of the August 28 OpenStack Foundation meeting. A year ago, an VMware-OpenStack hookup would have been seen as unlikely. When Rackspace and NASA launched the OpenStack Project more than two years ago, it was seen as a competitive response to VMware’s server virtualization dominance inside company data centers and to Amazon heft in public cloud computing.
