Oh absolutely what we're seeing is enterprises obviously a massive trillion dollars in total IT infrastructure out there cloud is a more efficient way to handle many of those tasks so we're seeing enterprises.
Towards implementing clout the big issue -- we have a trillion dollars in the old model you know how you get there is difficult and that's what we're working to help customers must.
-- as you've always work with Hewlett-Packard and -- will be new -- strengthening.

Well one of the incredible things we all have cell -- now -- those devices are.
Massive collectors of data you take video.
And all that data has to be stored somewhere so we recently entered distorts market there is.
You know twenty X growth over the next ten years in the amount of -- of storage out there so it is a huge problem in their first huge opportunity for -- -- Something you think you're gonna push more into is that storage immediately -- have to measure sang with where we're going with.

Had to compete with that's his strong.
Well what we're unique in that we use this thing called open source is the development model where the only publicly traded open source development and not our company but that based on that model right and so we've been heavily uniquely protect that and not so we'll continue to drive that forward and it is unique it's different and no one else is really competing in open source with us.
And again a -- elect -- a big piece of that well critics is a piece of that but all of our software -- solutions open source are middleware is open source.
Nine of the ten largest public clouds all run on open source infrastructure so the cloud is really really built on open source you're.
