QUOTE: hit one of the major cloud providers

If you get to the core of a major cloud provider, source code for the tools or the orchestrating tools itself are a much more valuable target.

It enables a shy business to deploy REDIS / NOSQL / MongoDB / etc clusters in an amazon-like-way, with a nice control panel - a shy business can potentially become a major player itself.
