During a panel event this week at the OpenStack Summit, OpenStack distribution vendors explained what it is that they do, how they differentiate and why fragmentation is not a risk.
Pete Chadwick, Senior Product Manager of Cloud Infrastructure solutions at SUSE, explained that a distribution is like a museum, where a curator decides what makes sense for a collection. He noted that Linux vendors have long bundled open source components together for Linux in different ways.
"Our job is to look at the world of packages and figure out what works for our customers," Chadwick said.
