Alex's company is re-designing their cloud solution, and would like to utilize OpenStack + CEPH (Storage) / KVM (VM) / OVS (Networking). He's wondering if anyone has experience with these stacks, and any suggestions on how to find / engage relevant communities to help them navigate tricky technical issues? They are aiming to develop extended cloud solutions (beyond VM), targetting Cloud Phone, VM, Secure Container, DBaaS etc., hence the desire to work with the big/complex frameworks like OpenStack. Alex dismisses several comments about OpenStack being too complicated, and suggestions for simpler solutions, because of the need to develop a full-blown public cloud provider setup. Are you experienced in such a setup? Share your knowledge in the thread.

Paul asks if guest blogging on other websites for backlinks is a good idea? Does he need to look at possible sites that have a higher DR than his own to increase his DR? His concern is that once he posts the guest blog it will be removed after a short time and his DR will drop back as a result. Back in the day, guest blogging was a one of the most important methods of inccreasing a site's visibility and search ranking, with some going to the extent of creating PBNs (Private Blog Networks), spread across providers and networks to avoid detection, where they would create an array of sites linking back to the sites they wished to promote. PBNs still exist and offer backlinks at a price. Is this still a good idea or are search engines now discounting this type of networking? Voice your opinions in the thread.
