Start with the major computer vendors:
(HPQ) is trying to fork OpenStack while
(DELL) seems to want to integrate Microsoft into the cloud mainstream. But where are the customer benefits?
Where are the old phone companies?
(CTL) are trying to define what they call an "enterprise public cloud" space, but can they succeed with prices higher than Amazon's and technology inferior to IBM's?
Then ask where the startups have gone. This is a market that is not yet fully developed, but the competition between Amazon and IBM seems to be starving new companies, which use customers as a prime funding source, of financial oxygen.
