    https://github.com/ubicloud/ubicloud#how-is-this-different-t... was my immediate question, although they left off "and the license is different" but I guess that's implied

    As for the "as a managed service" part, I believe Open Metal (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=35087879 ) is trying to fill in that gap with actual open source software, although I cannot speak to the "6 key services in GA form in the next two years" aspiration since I don't know what the other 3 your going after in order to know how impactful they'll be

    For once, someone got it right and didn't claim with bold, uppercase letters that it's an Open Source project, like it usually happens with a lot of HN entries of that topic. Lately, the relicense of some Sentry product to a non-OSS license that was wrongly called "Open Source" just because the source was shared. As deserved, these kinds of usages tend to receive a good amount of backlash due to wrongly using the term.

    But here, all is right, I don't see where anyone could base any complaint. Except for being entitled to instruct others about the license they should use for their own work, that is. I'd say they are walking the line with insisting on how "open" this solution is, but it doesn't really cross any line.

    They are missing a very strong 4th line in "How is this different than OpenStack?" [1], though: OpenStack is Apache 2.0, aka. proper OSS, thus you can use or host it in whatever way you want, even use it to create an IaaS if you wanted. With UbiCloud, I didn't read the license, but probably not.

    Pretty terrible look, given you're lying already with this "We don't claim to be "open source" rather we are open and free as in you can see the code and host it yourself if you want. "

    From https://ubicloud.com/

    At top: "An open source cloud that can run anywhere."

    Near bottom: "Open-source or managed for you"

    At least Openstack doesn't lie about its complexity.
