Transition plan from baremetal infra

    Reasons to move to cloud: Could we have some more details while explaining “efficient utilization”? Some before/after metrics/numbers would be very eye catching.

    Transition plan : Some flowchart might be easier for audience to understand the same.

    Cloudstack vs Openstack : Comparisons are always easier to read/explain in a tabular format

    “AWS like” - Looks like the ultimate goal was HA for block and object storage. Might be a good idea to state that as actual Goals and then give AWS example

    Slide 9 : Whole lot of text. Can we reduce this to readable/summarised bullet points?

    Do we have more slides post slide 12 ? Audience might want to understand the milestones achieved; and the key challenges/takeaways from the extire exercise (as a summary)
