Re: The Cloud...

In this case, not necessarily.

OpenStack is designed to run public, private or hybrid virtualised server environments (aka clouds) so the computers may well be yours and may well be on your network.

A second point is that is that if I wanted to base some or even all of my infrastructure in the public cloud, I would much rather it was running in an open sourced virtualisation environment than a proprietary one, so the demise of OpenStack would be a significant loss to those who are serious about secure and reliable computing, and a significant gain to the proprietary vendors.
