Top Stories by Reuven Cohen

Reuven Cohen's "Elastic Vapor" Blog A few months ago a number of us came together to create "The Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum". The purpose of this group is to discuss the creation of a common cloud computing interface. The group is made up of a some of the largest cloud related vendors and startups who all share the goal of cloud interoperability as well reducing cross cloud complexity. I'd like to take a moment to explain my cloud interoperability ideas. After various conversations, our concept is starting to take shape and is based on what I'm called the "unified cloud interface" (aka cloud broker). The cloud broker will serve as a common interface for the interaction with remote platforms, systems, networks, data, identity, applications and services. A common set of cloud definitions will enable vendors to exchange management information between remote ... (more)

IBM Must Now Compete with Empowered Oracle

In case you missed it Oracle announced this morning that it will be acquiring Sun Microsystems. The transaction is valued at approximately $7.4 billion. This news means the technology landscape is about to radically change and quite possibly, Sun hardware is now dead. The software aspects of the deal actually makes a lot of sense. It certainly seems like a very obvious fit, Oracle is buying Java. Whether Larry Ellison admits it or not, Java is the key to enterprise focused cloud computing. It's the perfect language and format for the fluid movement between existing enterprise dat... (more)

Introducing the Private Partner Cloud

I'm currently in Seoul South Korea for a variety of meetings with SK government and technology industry folks. Yesterday I had a very interesting meeting with the largest South Korean mobile provider. During the meeting they described a great potential use case for telecom focused IaaS cloud offerings. Basically what they've done is created an on demand compute infrastructure specifically for their network of mobile application developers. The service is offered free of charge to their partners and provides all the tools necessary for the development, testing and deployment of ... (more)

2010 New Year’s Resolutions of a Cloud Visionary

Cloud Expo New York As we end 2009 and head into 2010 I thought I'd take a moment to publicly state some of my goals and resolutions for the upcoming year. You'll notice that most of these goals are business focused, but alas, lately I've been very business focused with Enomaly and my various other schemes. 5. Keep Giving Back. For anyone who knows me, knows that I am a doer. From CloudCamps, to Cloud Interop, from Advisory boards to mentorships. I will continue to give back whenever and where-ever I can. If there is an itch, I will do my best to scratch it. 4. Keep pushing myself.... (more)

Microsoft Actually Does Get Cloud Computing

Reuven Cohen's "Elastic Vapor" Blog Yesterday Microsoft launched its cloud computing offering, very similar to that of Google's App Engine or Rackspace's Mosso. Micrsoft's Azure Services Platform is a cloud operating "platform-as-a-service" rather then Amazon's Infrastructure-as-a-service that can deliver web, mobile, or hybrid software-plus-services applications capable of bridging traditional operating and hosting environments with Microsoft extensive global hosting environment. According to their press release, "existing software can utilize the services to add cloud capabilitie... (more)
