Not long ago Gartner released an oft-quoted statistic: 95% of private clouds fail. According to Tom Bittman, VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner, of 140 customers polled, 95% reported “something was wrong” with their private cloud.

Identifying a shortcoming and labeling it a “failure” might be a bit of hyperbole, but it still leaves enterprises wondering if there is a place for private cloud in their strategy. This paper will attempt to answer this question, and will focus on the role of OpenStack in particular as a private cloud solution.
