OStatic's Updated Guide to the Open Cloud
As we approach the end of 2012, many new frontiers for open source are apparent, and one of the clearest is in the cloud computing arena. OpenStack, originally launched by Rackspace and NASA only a couple of years ago, is now backed by a hall-of-fame list of tech heavyweight companies and its own foundation. Meanwhile, Citrix is having success with its Cloudstack platform, and Eucalyptus Systems remains a primary player in the cloud.
Open source is having a profound influence on cloud computing. In this post, you'll find OStatic's updated complete collection of posts, interviews and columns on the open source cloud.
OStatic has conducted interviews with cloud computing platform managers, and makers of commercial cloud platforms, focused on the question, "What's in Your Stack?" The people we interviewed are, in many cases, cloud pioneers, and include founders of hot cloud-focused startup companies. A good sample of the interviews in this series can be found here:
OStatic has also collected many good guest posts on cloud computing from people in the open source community, with good examples found here:
