Microsoft Azure cloud using Dell containers: http://www.greenm3.com/gdcblog... HP also builds containers, fills them with compute/storage/network/power/cooling equipment and ships them to customers.

I think he's talking more about how cloud (Specifically OpenStack) needs a Linus Torvalds. Some marquee name to hold it all together and not let it fragment too much. Have a cloud at the core... then openstack/cloudstack/nebula/etc are "distributions" that sit on top. You can make a piece of the software and it will run on any of the distributions since they are all based on a core that works for them all. http://news.slashdot.org/story/12/10/25/0128207/does-openstack-need-a-linus-torvalds
