Reuven Cohen's "Elastic Vapor" Blog 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. There are a number of organizations looking into solving the problem of cloud federation. A fundamental challenge in creating and managing a globally decentralized cloud computing environment is that of maintaining consistent connectivity between various untrusted components that are capable of self-organization while remaining fault tolerant. 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... (more)

Semantic Cloud Abstraction

The CCIF and it's members have recently focused on creating a common cloud taxonomy and ontology. I find it's starting to sound a lot like semantics, Cloud Semantics. We are in a sense defining what cloud computing is by describing it's "components" and their relationships to one another. One that is capable of expressing cloud computing and its subsequent parts in terms of a consensus data model. So in this effort we may actually be defining a dynamic computing model that can, under certain conditions, be 'trained' to appropriately 'learn' the meaning of related cloud & infrastr... (more)

Six Steps to Building an Open Source Cloud Company

Since starting Enomaly almost 5 1/2 years ago we've learned a lot about the bootstrapping, building and management of an open source business. Over that time the open source model for application development and marketing has grown from a fringe approach to mainstream model being used by a significant portion of the software & technology industry. Recently with the emergence of cloud computing, open source has become an even more important aspect in the modern enterprise technology landscape. By using the cloud we are no longer locked into a single server, data center or network ... (more)

Intel & Open Cloud Standards

In a recent post on the Intel community blogs, Intel has for the first time publicly shed light on its strategy around Cloud Computing and the so called "Open Cloud" and how open standards and open source solutions play in the cloud computing era. In the post Jackson He, a Senior Architect at Intel said "Intel has been a leader for HW standard building block for the last 30 years and has changed the industry. It is natural to assume that Intel should focus IaaS and PaaS building blocksas well as how these open standards could be applied at open datacenters (ODC) as“adjacent” grow... (more)

ForLinux Launches First Enomaly Cloud Computing Service

ForLinux announced that it will begin offering Cloud Computing services to its customers, using the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform (ECP), Service Provider Edition. This will be one of the first ECP Cloud Computing service based in UK. ForLinux will host the ECP cloud computing platform within its UK based datacenter, enabling ForLinux’s customer to access computing capacity on demand. ForLinux’s Cloud Computing service is expected to be available to customers on 1st August 2009. ForLinux’s Enomaly ECP-based Cloud Computing service can be used to host web sites, to power inte...
