TurnKey Linux: Launch Open Source Apps in Amazon EC2

,----[ Quote ]
| Never underestimate the power of Linux 
| developers with a goal. TurnKey Hub, which 
| makes it easier, faster, and cheaper to 
| leverage Amazon EC2 and the cloud at large,

| more fully.


European cloud providers expect business to expand, says IDC

,----[ Quote ]
| The survey showed that European cloud 
| providers are running infrastructures that 
| are much closer to those of traditional 
| enterprises than the global providers. Many 
| of those providers use open source, with 
| 56% of servers running Linux, 81% of 
| organisations standardising on Apache, or a 
| mix of Apache and Microsoft's IIS, and 69% 
| standardising on MySQL.



Drupal Founder Critical of SaaS and its Proprietary Nature

,----[ Quote ]
| Drupal's founder is calling for open
| source in the enterprise and in the cloud.
| This should be no surprise, coming from
| someone like Dries Buytaert. But it is
| still interesting, considering the source
| and the point he makes about the actual
| lack of open source in cloud computing.
| [...]
| Dries:
| "....they might allow you to export your
| data, but they usually don't allow you to
| export their underlying code. While a lot
| of these services might be built on Open
| Source components, they have a lot more in
| common with proprietary software vendors
| than Open Source projects or companies."
| It's in Dries view that this model can be
| disrupted by open source. For example, he
| says, the Drupal Gardens community
| improves the overall platform by
| contributing to it. The goal, as Dries
| says, is for people to export their Drupal
| Garden site in their entirety " the code,
| the theme and data -- and move the
| platform to any Drupal hosting
| environment."
