I want make a quick point of clarification on the Open Cloud Manifesto and my involvement. I am not the "leader" or "instigator" of the manifesto. I am among a broader group of supporters & co-authors of this document, all of which have had equal involvement. Some of the recent media reports have mis-characterized me as being the sole creator or originator which is not correct. This effort would never have come together without the wider industry support and backing of the dozens of companies involved.

In the next few years the a key opportunity for the emerging cloud industry will be on defining a federated cloud ecosystem by connecting multiple cloud computing providers using an agreeing upon standard or interface. In this post I will examine some of work being done in cloud federation ranging from adaptive authentication to... (more)

Virtualization & Cloud Computing: Perfect Together

Reuven Cohen's Blog Recently I've been asked about the benefits of cloud computing in comparison to that of virtualization. Generally my answer has been they are an ideal match. For the most part virtualization has been about doing more with less (consolidation). VMware in particular positioned their products and pricing in a way that encourages you to use the least amount of servers possible. The interesting thing about cloud computing is it's about doing more with more. Or if you're Intel, doing more with Moore. At Intel's core, they are a company driven by one singular mantra, ... (more)
