OpenStack has had some growing pains since its first release in October 2010, but remains a popular open source option for cloud. Enterprises and cloud providers are attracted to OpenStack because of the control and flexibility it provides them when developing cloud services -- but it's not without its challenges.
On Twitter, OpenStack trends emerge, with some praising the freedom from vendor lock-in and others complaining about deployment. OpenStack is trying to address these challenges with each new update, including the most recent version, Mitaka. But a lack of support still causes some users to seek answers from the IT community.
Here are some recent OpenStack trends and questions surfacing on Twitter:
