The vast majority of readers will know the Mirantis story. Lots of drama, the center of many an internet storm, intrigue and a singular focus on making OpenStack really break out and be a thing. Well much of that remains, but much doesn’t. Mirantis’ image as the bad-boy Russian tech company has changed since they consciously decided to move away from the Russian thing. They still no doubt party hard, but they’re no longer purely focused on OpenStack. (Oh, and one other thing has changed, and that is the departure of one of the better tech communications execs out there, Sarah Bennett, y’all should hire her, she’s ace.)
