    I guess I am focusing on different aspects of the stack so I come to a different interpretation. Because of OpenStack, IaaS is now completely commoditized, and thus there is no value add in the cloud controller. However, IaaS does not a cloud application make: so the value-add is now up the stack and the first layer you hit is PaaS. The forces on applications demand scalability and efficiency, and virtualization is not a good vehicle to deliver that. By the virtue of an open source stack like OpenStack, the community can now innovate around efficiency optimizations that they never could with VMware and Hyper-V. So VMware and Hyper-V are being marginalized because they didn't serve the people that are moving the needle forward on what customers really need and that is scalable, efficient cloud applications.
