Red Hat Sees New Future in World of Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| While the base platform Linux, still remains the dominant 
| contributor of revenue, the company has moved beyond its 
| Linux roots. Rather than being seen as a player only in 
| the Linux OS space, the company is now positioning itself 
| as an infrastructure player. In the emerging world of 
| clouds, this has huge implications.



Red Hat's Deltacloud at Tip of Epic Change

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this month Red Hat announced its Deltacloud initiative
| to "enable an ecosystem of developers, tools, scripts, and
| applications which can interoperate across the public and
| private clouds."
| The potential impact on the ability of users, developers and
| IT departments to consume cloud services via a common set of
| tools is, according to Brian Stevens, Red Hat's CTO, "epic."
| These days, you must be careful when using the "E" word,
| because often as not, it's accompanied by its nemesis: the "F
| " word â as in "epic fail." Especially when talking about
| cloud computing. Plenty of arguments are made against the
| concept, like "It was done in the '60s with a different name
| and we've moved on," or "It's just the ASP model all over
| again, " or "It's not secure." And there's always the
| venerable old favorite: "It's not reliable."


'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.
