A Guide to Amazon Web Services for Corporate IT Managers

| Finally, they are becoming the industry 
| standard and their interfaces are or will 
| be incorporated into a variety of third 
| party providers. One example is Linux 
| distro vendor Ubuntu. They have an 
| Enterprise Cloud offering that makes use of 
| the same AWS programming interfaces, making 
| it easier for developers to port their 
| cloud applications to a private server 
| running Ubuntu inside your corporate data 
| center. Another is coming from Racemi, 
| which plans on having tools that can import 
| VMware virtual machines into and out of AWS 
| later this year. 


Legal experts split over cloud effect on open source 

,----[ Quote ]
| At the Cloud Law Summit in London on 
| Wednesday last week, Andrew Charlesworth, 
| director of the University of Bristol 
| centre for IT and law, said the reasons 
| some businesses choose open-source software 
| â lower cost and lack of vendor lock-in â 
| could be eroded by cloud services.


Is open source still a recruitment tool?

,----[ Quote ]
| As part of its effort to find the best 
| employees it can, Twitter has launched a 
| directory to the open source projects it 
| supports, with cute little icons 
| representing the employees working on each 
| one.


Twitter Loves Open Source And Launches A Directory To Prove It

,----[ Quote ]
| In recent months, there seems to be a mad 
| rush of companies trying to one-up each 
| other with how open-source they are.  
| Twitter is the latest, as they have 
| launched a directory of all the open source 
| projects they're currently working on 
| and/or contributing to.The list is fairly 
| impressive. It includes open source 
| projects in Ruby, Scala, Java, C/C++, and 
| other various tools.



Red Hat projects to seed cloudy IT

,----[ Quote ]
| Let's get one thing straight. We don't like
| the term cloud computing any more than you do
| Of course, Richard Stallman doesn't like when
| we call it Linux rather than GNU/Linux. He's
| gotta live with Linux. And, well, we've gotta
| live with cloud computing. It's not going
| away.
| Commercial Linux and middleware distributor
| Red Hat is, like other platform providers,
| trying to get money from IT departments that
| buy software. But Red Hat can't say that. For
| one, the company can't sell software because
| that violates open source licensing, and two,
| it's too boring to just come out and say that.


Red Hat Ramps Up Open Source Cloud Projects


The people's cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.
