I would like to express VMware's concerns over using ".cloud" as a closed gTLD. 
 We endorse the comments made by Michele Neylon and her fellow cosigners in her 
letter addressing the issue and those made by Microsoft Corporation, detailing 

Closing  .cloud will give the impression that the domain and, therefore by 
proxy, the form of internet based computing, known as 'cloud' is owned and 
controlled by a single individual or corporation.  This threatens the openness 
and values held dear by users of the internet, not to mention the thousands of 
businesses operating in this space, whose livelihoods may be impacted as a 
result of closing this important and open domain.

Common sense in this scenario must prevail.

Kind Regards
