Open-source tools could make it easier to build a hybrid cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Of the two packages, Eucalyptus is farther 
| along in terms of development: NASA uses 
| Eucalyptus for its Nebula cloud. The Energy 
| Department's Argonne National Laboratory is 
| also exploring Eucalyptus, for scientific 
| research. Deltacloud is still in 
| development, though agencies could 
| participate and help define it features.  


Cloud is Just Another Word for "Sucker"

| The cloud, software as a service, hosted 
| applications, whatever you want to call it 
| is coming. The concepts are useful, but I 
| have little faith in the implementations.

| As always in Linux-land, there is a role 
| for the do-it-yourselfer to turn dung into 
| gold. Come back next week and I will tell 
| about this.



Open-sourcers promise cloud elephant won't trample your code

| Avro is expressive. It's small. And it's
| fast. Under Avro, schema is stored with
| data but is also factored out of instances.
| Arbitrary code types can be read and
| written without generating and loading the
| code.
| Furthermore, Avro includes a file format,
| textural encoding for data that handles
| versioning. An Avro RPC framework,
| meanwhile, is being build that'll talk to
| native languages, so these languages no
| longer need to converse with Hadoop through
| Java.


Eucalyptus Systems Releases First Major Update of the Open Source Eucalyptus Private Cloud Platform

,----[ Quote ]
| This news follows the company's
| announcement last week that Eucalyptus
| software is the engine behind the Ubuntu
| Enterprise Cloud (UEC), a new cloud
| computing solution packaged in the latest
| version of the popular Ubuntu Linux
| distribution. UEC powered by Eucalyptus
| will ship with every copy of Ubuntu 9.10
| Server Edition, which is available now at
| www.ubuntu.com.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
