Yeah I picked up on that also - trying to be all things to all people 
means we do less well at any single thing. No surprises there.

Yeah I picked up on a few things as well. The article was talking about 
gaps in upstream services:

a) they did a bunch of work on trove for their dbaas solution, but did 
they contribute any of that work?

b) they mentioned a lack of DRS and HA support, but didn't mention the 
Watcher or Masakari projects - maybe they didn't know they exist?
