IBM punts commercial Hadoop distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Not everyone is a Google, where the 
| MapReduce distributed data cruncher and 
| its related file system was created, or 
| even a Yahoo, where Hadoop was nurtured to 
| do what Google does - but in an open 
| source, community-driven fashion. Hadoop 
| is used at Yahoo! and Facebook and 
| Twitter, and it helps drive a portion of 
| Microsoft's Bing search engine. But it is 
| not widely understood in the corporations 
| where IBM does its business.

Cloud computing's secret sauce

| Along the way I suspect we'll see open-
| source companies like Puppet Labs and 
| Opscode, as well as open-source savvy 
| companies like RightScale, really thrive. 
| It's one of the first times open source 
| has taken the lead in simplifying IT, 
| rather than feeding its complexity.

Servoy Simplifies SaaS with Open Source Servoy 5.2 and PostgreSQL

,----[ Quote ]
| Servoy today announced the first open 
| source version of its award-winning SaaS 
| application development platform, Servoy 
| 5.2 using PostgreSQL. This change means 
| that Servoy users have enormous 
| flexibility in deployment to cloud hosting 
| or desktop systems. It also enables open 
| source developers looking for RAD tools, 
| rapid prototyping and data application 
| development to utilize a mature, easy-to-
| use environment.


The Challenge to Open Up the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| The question is whether this is enough. As 
| we've seen in the past, it is very 
| difficult to foster open source 
| communities in environments dominated by a 
| few top players. And with Amazon, 
| Microsoft, Google and, increasingly, 
| RackSpace calling the shots, it would take 
| quite a counter-push on the part of the 
| open source community to make any real 
| headway. With the cloud is still in its 
| infancy, says ZDnet's Paula Rooney, that 
| effort will have to come soon before the 
| playing field is laid out by the big guys.



Hadoop Crunches Web-Sized Data

,----[ Quote ]
| The answer is a cluster-based analysis
| system, sometimes referred to loosely as a
| cloud database system. At the Cloud
| Computing Conference and Expo Nov. 3 in
| Santa Clara, Calif., representatives of
| Yahoo explained how they use Hadoop open
| source software, from the Apache Software
| Foundation, to analyze the Web.
