How much of this confusion is deliberate and how much is simply the normal of fog of war which pervades the storage industry?

Eucalyptus clones more AWS features for cloud control freak

Amazon Web Services will not build you a private copy of its own cloudy infrastructure for your own use, and it believes, as its top brass reiterated again last week, that there is no such thing as a private cloud. But don't tell Eucalyptus Systems that. The company was founded to try to clone AWS, and with its 3.3 release, it …

Ex-MySQL boss plots Second Cloud Coming

Open...and Shut It's always unwise to count out Marten Mickos.
