What does a cloud computing user want?

,----[ Quote ]
| The cloud you use today may not be the cloud 
| you want or can afford to use later. The 
| information you store in one cloud may need 
| to be extracted and moved to one or more 
| clouds by other providers. You may decide to 
| convert from a public cloud to a private or 
| private-public hybrid. Do you want to 
| rewrite your cloud applications completely 
| to use completely different APIs? Creating 
| and using open standards is one of the best 
| ways of getting interoperability.


What is the open web? Two things, at least.

| Looking back over all these materials in the 
| last few days, I came to a realization: when 
| you sort for broad patterns, people in the 
| Mozilla world use âopen webâ in two very 
| different ways:
|    1. The first is to describe the open web 
|    as a set of technologies. Itâs HTML, CSS, 
|    JavaScript and so on. The list of 
|    technologies grows over time, but all 
|    pass the test of being developed in the 
|    open, letting you create and innovate 
|    without asking permission. This is Atulâs 
|    âmagic inkâ.
|    2. The second broad category is open web 
|    as place or condition.



The people's cloud

| John Suffolk's (the Cabinet Office CIO) generously replied to my questions
| posed in last week's blog. G-Cloud is 'go' and it will be a Private Cloud,
| based on Open Standards and will use a mix of proprietary and (free?) open
| source software. All I reckon is left it to see whether it's stitched
| together by Microsoft's technology or Red Hat's.
| [...]
| Our great Free, Open Source guru Richard Stallman dislikes the Cloud concept.
| He sees it as a way to hand over your freedom to proprietarists and to get
| locked into someone else's computing paradigm. Many including this author
| agree with him. Below though is a manifesto for a 'good' cloud that would
| benefit the businesses and citizens of the UK without loss of rights and
| freedoms.
