Rally is designed as an operations tool. Its purpose is to run a production
cloud and give an operator tools and data to profile a production cloud. It
is intended as a first of many such tools.
There is a strong support in the community that operations tools should be
developed as part of OpenStack and Rally is the first such successful
I can envision other tools building a community around them and they too
should become part of OpenStack operations tooling. Maybe Operator Tools
program would be a better name?
