"At this point, OpenStack is utilized by over 132 countries worldwide."

Shouldn't be a problem getting Gaikai into other countries after the beta with Sony using openstack plus gaikai servers.

That's a bit of a deceiving stat. I spent a good couple of years in hosting. Nothing like the size of Rackspace, but I'd say my company were utilised by about 30 countries. All our servers were in Kent, so it's hardly applicable to latency-sensitive streaming.

Still, interesting service. MS recently dismissed it as impractical, and they have Azure ready to go. If Sony do pull it off well then somebody at MS headquarters will have some explaining to do in their next performance review :)

ah, good point I didn't think of that, I believe they do have servers in other countries though, but I have no idea where... It should help out the Gaikai servers and with some latency I would imagine.
