RIP to all of these great products!

ECS, S2D, R2C, MV4DD, etc.

Bonus points if you can translate!

Extra credit if you think of others!

@8mrr+1hsrCAxb Cloudstack was pretty awesome, for what was being built, a lower cost, more self-service cloud offering.

It was Cisco convincing the mo--n execs, JD, etc, that Openstack was the way to go - and this ki---d a product (cloudstack powered cloud offering) that was already on the floor, with customers on it.

ECS was pretty awesome until the d-mb CTOs went off to the land of cloudstack, openstack and all that BS - should of kept ECS going and highly automating - one of the fastest growing products they had!

Industry transforming products!

ECS was ki---d by stupid executives listening to Cisco promises. I will never forgive them for that. Yes, I'm still bitter.

Not to mention the millions wasted on the six sigma initiative which returned nothing in productivity. Just the latest cottage industry they fell prey to at the time. We're not making widgets for crying out loud.
