Why form Piston Cloud?
When launched and vendors started joining in, most of the development focus was on what service providers needed to operate at scale, and not what enterprise needed as far as , regulatory compliance, ease of use and performance.

Our first product is Piston Enterprise OS, and it's essentially a very opinionated distribution of OpenStack that addresses the issues around making it easy to build a private cloud environment that meets regulatory requirements.
