Discussion on the state of cloud computing and open source software that helps build, manage, and deliver everything-as-a-service.
Citrix and Open Source at OSCON 2013
At last week's O'Reilly OSCON 2013 Citrix waved their open source flag as the Diamond sponsor of the event and demonstrated a number of the open source technologies that they are helping to develop and promote.
During OSCON the Open@Citrix team in conjunction with members of the open source community demonstrated four technologies that we think will drive cloud computing and other advances in IT solutions.
Apache CloudStack - The infrastructure-as-a-service platform that powers thousands of cloud computing environments worldwide.
Open Daylight - The new collaborative project hosted by the Linux Foundation and sponsored by Brocade, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Red Hat and many more.
Xen Project - The Xen Project is the home for several virtualization related open source projects, and Xen Project is the new name for the Xen open source community. The Xen Project develops virtualization technologies powering the world's largest clouds in production and is the foundation of many commercial products.
Citrix XenServer - XenServer is a turnkey open source virtualization solution that provides out-of-the box virtualization and cloud computing. XenServer includes the Xen Hypervisor, the enterprise ready XAPI toolstack and integrations for cloud, storage and networking solutions.
