[News] 'Cloud' Lead Taken by GNU/Linux?

Hash: SHA1

Red Hat Sponsors Forum On Open Source In The Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| It's often seemed obvious to me that clouds and Linux go hand in hand. 
| Amazon's EC2 started out running workloads under Linux in a modified open 
| source Xen file format. So why couldn't the operation of the whole cloud be 
| based on open source code?   



New Release of Ubuntu Server Offers Amazon-Compatible Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| The next iteration of Ubuntu Linux will really help companies lift up into
| the clouds.
| The April 30 release of Ubuntu Server will have the ability to migrate
| KVM-based virtual machines from one physical server to another, similar to
| VMware's ability to use VMotion to migrate virtual machines, said Steve
| George, director of the enterprise group at Linux supplier Canonical.


Cloudera CEO: Hadoop, Open Source and the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| But Cloudera has heavyweight backing. It has raised money from venture
| capital group Accel Partners (though admittedly only a tepid $5 million). And
| its array of additional investors reads like a list of tech glitterati,
| including Marten Mickos, former MySQL CEO, and Diane Green, former VMware
| CEO.

| The analogy with Linux is plain enough: They want something akin to the
| hardened and slow-changing Red Hat Enterprise Linux, not the Fedora
| development release.


Ex-Google, Yahoo Staffers Release Hadoop Distribution

| That is why Cloudera has decided to release its distribution, which is
| available as an RPM bundle for systems running Red Hat Linux, as well as an
| image for Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

Cloudera Lands $5 Million in Series A Financing; Unveils Hadoop-centric

,----[ Quote ]
| Last October, Sam introduced us to Cloudera, a company founded by
| highly-decorated industry veterans hoping to bring Hadoop's data processing
| power to a variety of businesses. Though Cloudera came into existence just
| last summer, it has already closed a $5 million round of Series A funding led
| by Accel Partners.


Hadoop: Funny Name, Powerful Software

,----[ Quote ]
| Doug Cutting was a work-at-home dad plugging away at open source search code
| when he had a light-bulb moment that led him to create Hadoop, an open source
| adaptation of Google's MapReduce. Now, Yahoo is using Hadoop for all kinds of
| high-power computing functions.


Yahoo's Hadoop software transforming the way data is analyzed

,----[ Quote ]
| Cutting, a 44-year-old programmer who had helped build search engines at
| Apple and Excite, had started the search project in 2000 because he wanted
| his code to live on. He knew that closed-source projects, where software is
| treated as a corporate secret, had a way of dying. With open source, the code
| is published and other programmers can contribute suggestions and help fix
| bugs.
