Avoid Trap Of Proprietary Cloud Tooling: Use Simple API

,----[ Quote ]
| What's the first thing you should do if you're 
| thinking of developing software for cloud 
| computing? At ZendCon, Zend Technologies user 
| group yesterday, three members of a five member 
| panel answered the same way: adopt Simple Cloud 
| API, the open source cloud services interface.


Cloud Computing. Does it have any value at all?

| I stand on the point that security and control of 
| the data MUST be closely watched. Once your data 
| is on their servers, it is vulnerable not only to 
| hackers trying to get at a successful businesses 
| assets, but the government can play hardball and 
| demand access to that companies data ( which means 
| your data) without actually serving you with a 
| warrant prior to having said data.

Cloud Computing: Good or Bad for Open Source?

,----[ Quote ]
| Ideally, what we need is a completely open
| source cloud computing infrastructure on
| which applications providing people with
| things like (doubly) free email and word
| processing services could be offered. Now,
| it's clearly not possible to create the kind
| of huge facilities that Amazon, Google and
| Microsoft are building around the world. Not
| even Mr Shuttleworth, with all his millions,
| could sustain that for long without charging
| somewhere along the line. So simply running
| open source programs like Eucalyptus is not
| going to work. The trick here is not to
| fight the battle on the opponents' terms,
| but to come up with something completely
| different.
