OpenStack, the open source project designed to provide a collaborative approach to cloud computing, launched just three years ago. No doubt the project is already on pace to owning a large share of enterprise usage with high-volume, big-name participation.

High participation is an exciting thing, for sure, but is this influx of participants on the OpenStack bandwagon a true measure of enterprise dominance? Does an increase in hype mean an increase in enterprise adoption? While many technology pundits have their doubts, Pete Chadwick, senior product manager for cloud infrastructure at SUSE, shares practical, real-world arguments for why OpenStack will rule the enterprise.
