Well over a $100 million of venture and corporate capital has been poured into the OpenStack start-ups. Sounds like a lot, right? But compare that to adjacent open source segments such as Hadoop and Big Data, where start-ups close hundreds of millions in a single round and the number is laughable. So what should we all expect going forward? Is OpenStack still in the early days of its VC hype-cycles and should we expect OpenStack start-ups commanding billion dollar valuations and capital raises in 100M+ range? Or have we crossed the top of the hype, with industry now moving into the consolidation phase? See these and many other questions discussed between lively panel of VCs, who have all placed their bets on the OpenStack industry.
