Our CEO, Ian Rae, often compares the two technologies to Playmobil vs Lego; basically that with Playmobil you have a kit of pre-molded parts which allow you to get to play almost right away, whereas Lego lets you customize down to the individual bricks of the infrastructure...and while Lego takes longer to build, it can also be re-configured to meet changing needs.
It is with that flexibility in mind that CloudOps decided to invest in OpenStack as a line of business and partnered with Mirantis to do so. Rae says "we spent a lot of time tracking the OpenStack ecosystem and we were impressed with Mirantis' focus on making sure the open source version of OpenStack actually worked.
