Discussion on the state of cloud computing and open source software that helps build, manage, and deliver everything-as-a-service.
Presentation: Delivering Infrastructure-as-a-Service(Iaas) Open Source Software
Here are the slides from today's Delivering Infrastructure-as-a-Service(Iaas) Open Source Software that will run from 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.. EST.
The web was built using open source software like Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Python and Perl. Just as with the web, open source is one of the core foundations of cloud computing as early cloud pioneers used the freely available, freely distributable model to power their web-scale deployments and achieving an unprecedented level of scale at a bare-bones cost. However, for businesses today, the attraction of open source is about the ability to develop a more flexible infrastructure and avoid vendor lock-in that often results from proprietary systems.
