How to Make Cloud Computing Vanish into Thin Air

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm not quite sure about the âepicâ bit, but it's certainly clever. If the 
| operating system is being abstracted away by clouds, Red Hat seems to be 
| saying, the best thing to do is to abstract away the entire cloud computing 
| layer by hiding all the different APIs currently out there with another API on 
| top â by means of open source code running on GNU/Linux â and writing to that.


Open source, P2P and the Pirate Party

,----[ Quote ]
| P2P is the antithesis of the Cloud. The former uses individual computers that 
| interact with each other using the Internet merely as a relay infrastructure. 
| The latter is a server-centric model where services and data are hosted 
| centrally and with which individual computers interact with the servers via 
| the Internet.


Hadoop buzz continues to excite the cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Hadoop is the popular open-source implementation of MapReduce, a powerful tool 
| designed for deep analysis and transformation of very large data sets. It 
| enables you to explore complex data, using custom analyses tailored to your 
| information and questions. It's also one of the most buzz-worthy, talked about 
| open-source projects around.



'Special' Red Hat project joins search for The Meta Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Following in the slipstream of the open-source lidcloud project, Red Hat has
| unveiled its own effort to create a single programming interface for a wide
| range of so-called infrastructure clouds, including Amazon's EC2 and the
| Rackspace Cloud.
