The "Consumable" Cloud, Red Hat Flavoured

,----[ Quote ]
| Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general 
| manager of Red Hat's cloud business unit is 
| trying hard to convince customers that the 
| company can provide safe and managed cloud 
| computing services. He asserts this on the 
| back of the company's track record in 
| making Linux a safe place to run mission-
| critical applications with Red Hat 
| Enterprise Linux.


Red Hat and Cisco working on the virtualization deal 

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat and Cisco Systems have readied for 
| a joint alliance which shall expand their 
| virtualization network offerings.
| Red Hat is known as a leading provider for 
| open source solutions. It seeks to 
| integrate its Red Hat Enterprise 
| Virtualization (RHEV) software with the 
| virtual network link or the VN-Link 
| technology offered by Cisco.


Red Hat fights Microsoft for cloud profits

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat got its start as Linux magazine 
| publisher that tucked a Linux CD in the 
| back, and then evolved into the largest 
| commercial Linux distributor in the world. 
| The company added middleware from JBoss and 
| created other middleware, such as its 
| Enterprise MRG messaging, grid and realtime 
| Linux variant, and virtualization software 
| for desktops and servers. And now it has to 
| position itself as an alternative to 
| Microsoft as the platform upon which 
| customers can build x64-based clouds.



Red Hat releases cloud computing software tools

,----[ Quote ]
| LEADING LINUX VENDOR Red Hat has announced the
| release of several cloud computing tools in
| what it calls Cloud Foundation: Edition One.
| [...]
| Red Hat claims Edition One is the first of
| several cloud offerings that will give its
| customers everything they'll need to build and
| manage a private cloud software
| infrastructure.

Red Hat puts open source in the cloud


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."
