Rackspace President Lew Moorman[1] took the stage at the GigaOm Structure[2] Conference in San Francisco Wednesday to reveal the truth about vendor lock-in and showcase how the fusion of applications and infrastructure within proprietary cloud environments can trap customers and remove application portability. In his talk, Moorman disproved the myth of cloned APIs and showed how some of the cloud’s biggest and earliest users have become shackled to their providers. Moorman also presented a solution and showed how OpenStack and the Open Cloud lead to true application portability and cloud choice.
