+1 for "deployments"

Working through the rest of Shamail's suggestions, adding some grammar
changes for consistency, that brings us to:

To produce a ubiquitous Open Source Cloud Computing platform, that is
easy to use, simple to implement, interoperable between deployments,
works well at all scales, and meets the needs of users and operators of
both public and private clouds.

(I swapped the order of "interoperable..." and "works...", so it only
needs "is" once, instead of repeating it half-way through.)
