Welcome to the fourth issue of the Dell Open Source Ecosystem Digest - a collection of relevant technical content around OpenStack and Hadoop authored by Dell as well our partners and friends. This edition will be shorter than the previous ones - I cut out most of the repetitive information such as descriptions of our partner companies and I will consolidate them at one Wiki page shortly - let me know how that works for you. Your feedback is appreciated greatly!

By the way: With our fourth issue we proudly present ten (!) companies contributing to the digest, as well as five Dell employees. We started with just two contributors three weeks ago in our first issue (how cute is that?!). Enjoy reading and … watch out for the next issue!
