Cloud service shut shop.

Cisco announced that it shut it’s cloud service offerings(inter-cloud) from Mar 2017 with no visible increase in business compared to it’s competition from Amazon, Microsoft, IBM..  More here

It’s the third OpenStack based implementation offering that is pulling down, earlier two being HP and Rackspace in limited ways. All home grown offerings have good traction while OpenStack based ones are struggling to thrive, seems to be opposite of the open source culture..

What about other vendors who are still invested in cloud services offerings to their customers, what’s their motivation and interest?, companies like Salesforce, Oracle etc.
