For instance we are in touch with NRENs in France and Poland that are interested to deploy up to one rack in each of their largest PoP in order to provide a distributed IaaS platform  (for further informations you can give a look to the presentation we gave during the last summit [1] [2]).


I think working on supporting more distributed clouds is worthwhile
because the technology would enable a lot of new use cases. Centering
the discussion on the Telco industry's specific vCPEs use case is
unnecessarily limiting...

Agreed that a bottom-up, incremental improvement strategy sounds more
likely to succeed in an established project like OpenStack (compared to
a big-bang top-bottom re-architecture).
