Less than 1/3 of OpenStack deployments use the EC2 compatibility API and less than 1/4 use the S3 compatibility API. This is from 197 surveyed deployments: http://www.openstack.org/summit/portland-2013/session-videos/presentation/openstack-user-committee-update-and-survey-results

Most OpenStack deployments are on-premises private clouds. AWS clones are boring. My specific OpenStack deployment looks very little like AWS and has very tight integration to the rest of my infrastructure. This is due to OpenStack being Open Source and having an extensible API and architecture. My organization has pushed changes to the API and others get to benefit from this work.

If OpenStack was just an AWS clone I couldn't easily extend the API or have it changed because it's controlled by Amazon, who has no interest in my specific, private, use case.

What you're asking OpenStack to do is to become another lackluster clone of a proprietary product. No thanks. Let's not make OpenStack the WINE of the infrastructure world. You keep using AWS and I'll continue helping to build something amazing.

Man, Google+'s interface is so much cleaner and nicer than Facebook's. I really wish people used this rather than Facebook.

As of today GoDaddy is no longer used for any Wikimedia sites!

I'm talking at an upcoming CodeChix meetup. I'll be talking about how our infrastructure works, how we scale, and how we are treating our infrastructure like an open source project that anyone can join. Come out!

Wikipedia may go on strike due to SOPA legislation:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#Request_for_Comment:_SOPA_and_a_strike I strongly agree with the idea.

I really wish google+ for apps, and my regular google+ account were the same thing, but I could post with different status. Like: "Ryan Lane on behalf of Wikimedia Foundation".

I've been working on adding native HTTPS support to Wikimedia since May. Today we've launched it: http://blog.wikimedia.org/2011/10/03/native-https-support-enabled-for-all-wikimedia-foundation-wikis/
